I'm sorry

Well aren't I just the worlds worst blogger, I am really sorry for leaving it this long between blogs, haven't got any excuse good enough to have abandoned you for this long so all I can do is apologise.

We have had loads of calls and e-mails over the past week from everyone asking if we are okay and survived the floods, well we did. Anyone who saw the news pictures of the floods in Evesham will know how bad it got but luckily we are a further up the road from the river so we escaped pretty much unscathed (just a ceiling incident).

Some of the businesses further down were hit quite hard and I just want to say how impressed I am with Gem form Gem's Stems, the florists at the bottom of Port Street. The flood waters came up to the top of her front door and because she never gave up and spent her entire Saturday night Sunday and Sunday night cleaning she managed to Open again last Monday Morning. Her dedication to her customers is absolutely inspiring, plus my OH had me some flowers sent from Gem on Friday and Oh my word they were stunning all in pinks with about 30 stargazer lillies roses and loads more it was lovely. The lovely thing about our street is we are all independants making it a real pleasure to work here (also means we all work very hard and understand each others woes)

I have been keeping the website better updated than the blog with new products added all last week, I haven't put any on today yet but I will get round to it I promise, I hope you are all having a good day and the sun is shining

Friday the 13th

Okay so who feels unlucky? Well I don't but I tell ya the day has not started well the card machine is having a humungous flid, and they won't give me a time when the new one will be delivered PLUS everytime I phone them I feel like I'm the idiot I'm asking relatively simple questions and can't get a bloomin straight answer and to top it all off the next bloomin VAT has arrived GRRRRRRRRR! Anyway I though I might bring a bit of education to our Friday morning and type some words that I can hardly pronounce so here we go

The fear of Friday the 13th is called paraskavedekatriaphobia (a word that is derived from the concatenation of the Greek words Παρασκευή, δεκατρείς, and φοβία, meaning Friday, thirteen, and phobia respectively; alternative spellings include paraskevodekatriaphobia or paraskevidekatriaphobia) or friggatriskaidekaphobia, and is a specialized form of triskaidekaphobia, a phobia (fear) of the number thirteen.

So there you go, I new the triskydecca wotsit but the others were all new to me lets face it you gotta love google, I saw this fab thing the other day on an american lady's blog where she had come up with an uingenious way of storing her punches, and like most great ideas really simple. She attched a thick wooden fram to the back of a door and then put curtain rails at different intervals down the fram and when she'd finished the punches with lever pointing tiwards the floor just rested on the bar I tell you . I was so impressed the only flaw with that plan is I've just turned the doors round in my crafty cupboard so there is more light so both the doors back on to walls but I thought that someone out there may find it useful.

I tell ya I cannot believe it is raining I was just starting to get used to the sunny spells and some if Dave's rellies are having a barbeque so I dpon't wanna get soggy, mind you they will probably get all to mullered to be bothered, not me though, some of you may know why and some of you can probably now guess, but I'm still not divluging completely yet so I'll just let your imaginations roll with it.

Right the Glitter Girls new boards and DVD's have just arrived so I'd better go and get them priced and loaded on the site.

See you later

Happy Monday peeps

Good afternoon,

How have we all been, did you all have a good weekend well if you dodn't make sure you come to the shop this weekend because I in the shop and lets face it that is definately good news.

It's been a really busy day today picking orders, doing orders cleaning shelves talking to our fabby customers one of those fabby days when we realise how much we love doing what we do, and we really do love it becaus eit's wicked.

My gorgeous nephew phoned us up today ( wanted to talk straight to Nanny (Julie) of course not interested in lil ole me, it had lunch at big school day, bless him he's so excited, he starts school properly in September and it's really weird it seems like the last five years have just gone poof and there they go.

Well wasn't this weekend beautiful the sun finally remembered it was July (if only briefly) and it was blooming gorgeous, we had a barbie on Saturday because it was Dave's (my other half) birthday and his mum and dad came over from the Black Country and we all sat outside on my decking, it was beautiful, and bless my sister she jsut sits there listening to Dave and his mum and dad talk she loves listening to them because she thinks the Dudley accent is really musical, bless her.

Well I'm going to get going as I've got to speack to a man about phones (I live the life of a rock star I tell ya :) )
