Did you know that a hug lowers blood pressure, which in turn helps to relax you and lower anxiety?  Apparently our bodies release Oxytocin when we hug, touch or sit close to someone we love – scientists call it the “cuddle hormone”.  I love this!  I am always trying to hug my son George – most of the time he’s OK with it, but I have to choose my moments ha ha!
Sometimes though, a quick hug is all we need for some comfort or reassurance, and to know that we are loved, so go on – give someone or even your pet, a cuddle – you’ll make their day, and you know what? just like manners, they cost nothing!
Another good reason for a cuddle this week has been to keep warm!!  My goodness it has been bitterly cold.  The hot water bottle has been with me at work this week.
Whilst it has been quiet at the shop, I did a little video of our ponchos which you can see either on our Facebook page or Instagram.  That kept me warm changing into each different colour and filming myself!  If there is anything in particular you’d like me to talk about on a video do let me know.
One of our customers is off to Tenerife this weekend and needed some new white trousers for her holiday, so I have been in the loft finding them for her. We have a good system in place where our stock is safely packed away and all listed which made it very easy for me to find.  I was delighted that they were the perfect fit and now have a new home.
If ever you need any out of season stock – don’t be afraid to ask.  Most of which should be on our website.
Until next week, keep warm, look out for each other and be kind.
Our website is available for online orders, click and collect and delivery.
