To sleep, perchance to dream... I wish I could do more of the first, and less of the second. It's early in the morning and there's some light drizzle going on outside. The weather forecast suggests Maisy Mouse might get a little damp tomorrow (if she arrives today).
Still lots to do, but the good news is we finally got the sign yesterday. It's a big one alright, and I think that astronauts will be able to see where we are from space. Now all we've got to do is put it up.
Yesterday we had some great help again, and people came in throughout the day to pick up flyers to distribute, help put books out, and obviously bring us chocoalate based treats.
James and Clare were both here again. James alphabetasized the Fiction section and Clare as well as shopping, cutting up the flyers (don't by a guillotine form Wilkinson's) started to put the Kids section in some kind of order.No mean feat.
In the evening Tim and Kat turned up to offer help
, and also were the excuse we needed to get the beers in.
Katie made up a hundred goodie bags, which are all filled with delights and treats for kids of all shapes and sizes.
We painted the outside of the shop (dark green), the sticks for the balloons arrived (but not the balloons), the skip is still outside the shop, the oder from the States arrived, and we're now flying solo on the computer, as Marin the Bertam's Trainer has nicked off to spread his teachings elsewhere.
And we've got a sofa It's not green.
Lots to do today, and once again thanks for all the messages of support. It makes us smile.
