It was an even shorter week for me – not only did I have Bank Holiday Monday at home, but I only worked until lunchtime on Tuesday! Lyn took over from me so that I could get home to take George to the Orthodontist!

I had a busy day in the shop on Tuesday and consequently didn’t get round to changing the window display until Wednesday – I wasn’t very well planned either, but somehow it just all came together!

I also had a rep visiting who took up a good couple of hours of my time – I was looking at some flip flops made from recycled plastic but they may be too low on stock for this summer, and he was also showing me some winter slippers – the soles are made from water algae of all things! (I’ll explain more when I receive the literature). They are cute little booties and slides with supportive foot beds. They will retail about £45 and are very comfortable – I hope you’ll like them – a pair of slippers is always a great Christmas gift! I really suffer with cold feet, so I will definitely be having a pair of the booties. I took a quick snap of the ones I opted for – let me know your thoughts……

Then on Thursday our high summer Adini stock arrived – if only the weather came with it!! Four sleeveless dresses, one short sleeved wrap dress and a fabulous striped tunic. All in store and available online now – unfortunately they didn’t have official photographs available for me to use on the website so I had to do my best myself!

What I have noticed this week, is that many of you have occasions to attend and have been looking for dresses and smart shoes – it’s so pleasing to hear that the rules have relaxed and we are easing back into normality.

I last had my hair coloured and cut in December, so imagine my relief to have had it done on Thursday – but doesn’t it take such a long time?!! I sit there thinking about all the things I could be doing, rather than enjoying a relaxing experience!! Anyway – I am delighted it’s done. Next week I have my second vaccination to look forward to!

In the meantime, stay safe, sending you lots of love, good health and best wishes. Look out for each other and be kind.
