NOT sure what’s going on but I’m still feeling a bit crap – particularly so this morning.
My Black Friday promos seem to have done the trick and there’s a quite a few merch orders in.
Some – for hoodies – are on back order so I work out some numbers and get in touch with Kenny, our screen printing guru.
I make up the other orders, print postage and take the packages that’ll fit down to the postbox.
I book the others in for the postie to collect tomorrow. Since the post office closed in the village our nearest is 12/15 miles away. Mmm….you’d think in that case the collections would be free!
Early afternoon a courier brings the shelving units for the office and I make start clearing some space.
One of the desktops – just an Ikea thing – needs cut so another, now redundant, can be slotted in to make a corner unit.
I do that then start the bigger job.
The forecast is for storms and the winds are picking up so we try to lower the gazebo a bit. It’s not really practical to get the roof off and the thing won’t fold down anymore (past damage!) so we just gave to go for e limitation!
I finish the first shelving unit an Margaret goes back inside to start dinner. Then the power goes off.
At least I brought a load of wood in and the wood burner’s going full pelt.
Luckily too, I charged my head torch the other day and we bought some spare gas for the camp stoves last time there was a power cut.
I find my way tot he studio and grab some battery LED camera lights then phone Betty to see if she and Joe are OK. They are.
A wee while later, tho’, Betty calls – she could do with a hand getting Joe out his chair and to the toilet and bed, so I nip along and help out.
When I get home dinner’s nearly ready – slow progress using camp stoves, but the end result is good.
We sit and chat and I mess with the guitar until bedtime.
