One Year

It was a year ago today that we got the keys to the shop that is now the mighty Big Green Bookshop.

One year....blimey

We'll be having an all day party to celebrate a year since we opened, in a couple of weeks time (the party is on Saturday March 7th, and it's going to be a doozy. Do come along), but it's little anniversaries like this that kinda make you think.

Speaking for myself, I think this has been the best year of my life. The previous year was pretty good, but this year has been incredible. Obviously the biggest thing for me has been this

Incredible, joyous, beautiful, life affirming, sleep depriving, wonderful Freya.

Yeah, the bookshop's been alright too i suppose.

A massive thanks to all of you who have helped keep the good ship BGB on course. It's been a rocky ride, and I suspect there will be other scary mary moments. But we're working our socks off and hopefully if we keep on keeping on, then we'll be here for a few more years yet.

I've deleted a big rant I was going to write about Tesco, so we'll save that for a more appropriate day.

Happy birthday shop.
