Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


To everyone who has supported us this year in what can only be described as very uncertain times, we thank you.  Independent shops in particular have to fight to survive and we are very lucky to have loyal customers who make running a little shop very enjoyable.

I’m writing this on Christmas Eve at the shop.  The last customer has left and all is very quiet.  I find myself reflecting on the past year and can’t quite believe another year has almost finished.  What is it about the older you get, the quicker the years go by?  However, I’m looking forward to 2012 and to new beginnings.

I know that tomorrow I will be enjoying some uninterrupted time with my family and can’t wait to see the look on my children’s faces when they open their presents.
