Right Then

Simon;

I slept surprisingly well. Those sedatives must have finally kicked in. It's 8.15am and I've got a tickly throat. Don't tell Tim, but I think i'm going to take a sickie...

Alright, i'll go to work.

Everything arrived yesterday, and once again, we had lots of people coming in to help. Here's Finn blowing up one of the 1000 balloons that we have, declaring The Big Green Bookshop. Wood Green's Only Bookshop. Thanks Finn, and everyone else who's been in over the last 16 days. You all rock.

I'll make it short today, because I need to learn how to use the till, and also I have to get a float sorted. And there are about 34 other things to do on the list, but we should be OK.

Here's a picture that we thought you might like..

I'll put a big blog up tomorrow. Fingers crossed eh?

Dude, you weren't kidding. That sign is huge!

Ugh (looks at the time), I guess I better get my ass down.

Hope your opening day is all you expect it to be. Have fun...I'm there in spirit if not in body.
All the best. :D

Congratulations on opening "Wood Green's Only bookshop" there was a great atmosphere in the shop this morning.

Shona (8) said "I liked my Goody Bag" And Rowan (5) was delighted with her Michael Rosen book (about Goonies!)

Daddy... (Me(50)) is really happy that there is a new independent bookshop close to home. Good Luck with all you do - see you again soon!

Hope it all went well today, we were thinking about you, was sorry that I missed it. The sign looks fantastic, you definitely made the right choice with the typeface, it looks so fresh and brilliant! Looking forward to popping in soon.
