Wow, it is Easter Saturday! I have been indulging in the odd chocolate egg so I don't know why I am suddenly amazed that Easter is upon me, but I am. Easter does have a habit of just appearing for me, it is the time of the year that our cows start going out for their spell, and I always have a big project that I happily immerse myself in. This year the project has been huge; setting up shop.
I thought I would share some of what I have learnt so far.
- Furniture needs to be arranged and rearranged, and even when you think you are happy with the layout, next time you walk through the door you wont be.
- Shoes which previously were very comfortable, suddenly can't be worn for a whole day.
- Never rely on fabric arriving when it is supposed to.
- You will always need a size bag that you did not purchase.
- Better to look like a dunce and use the calculator rather than making a mistake using your brain.
- Don't suddenly appear at the window when customers are sneaking a peek inside, you will frighten them.
- You must pack your lunch when you pack the children's lunch, otherwise you will be placing an SOS call to your husband who will proceed to tell you that he has to feed the cows and the bulls first and you will spend the rest of the day pondering how cows and bulls are more important than you. (But when the lunch does arrive he will have packed three chocolate truffles that your waistline definitely did not need, but you will probably eat them because you are feeling so pleased that the cows and bulls have been fed).
- And finally, you should always carry your camera so you can take some photos of your shop to share with your faithful blog readers.
I hope you have a lovely Easter!
