I am delighted that our busy spell has continued and I am absolutely loving it! I like to chat with my customers and this week, there have been so many visitors from all around the UK, either visiting family or enjoying a break away. From Inverness, Norfolk, Camberley, Liphook, Locks Heath, Alton, Petersfield, Southampton and Hayling Island to name just a few! Of course, they have all fallen in love with Emsworth.

I just about managed a quick window change in between busy spells – it’s amazing how things seem to be more popular from one week to the next. This week it’s been all about trousers! Robell crops and shorts and some Marble wide leg trousers.

I thoroughly enjoyed spending a good hour or two with one lady who had completely lost her confidence. Her shape had changed and she didn’t know what to wear. She was really fed up with her wardrobe. It was great because she was prepared to try anything – I encouraged her to try things which she really wouldn’t normally have considered. Two dresses, a pair of trousers and a top later she left one happy lady!

It is so rewarding – naturally I am pleased to be making sales, but honestly, I get such a thrill to see people loving the stock and helping them to feel good.

We also took delivery of our new toy – a super quick digital card payment terminal. The numbers are much easier to see and to press, and it prints the receipts at lightening speed!

On Friday I had a lovely outing with my husband and his parents to The Garden Show at Stansted House – it was a nice relaxed day just wandering and browsing. We were lucky that the weather was dry and warm. We celebrated our 22nd Wedding Anniversary yesterday, so we treated ourselves to a few garden items and my in-laws bought us some delicious lemon gin!

Looking forward to serving you soon – have a good week, stay safe, sending you lots of love, good health and best wishes. Look out for each other and be kind.
