Cowart's Common Room

Well it was exactly a year ago today I did my first blog here, and I have loved every minute of being here. I have just nipped over to take a peep and notice that I said it was my Wedding Anniversary on 23rd, it's usually my HL that gets it wrong, or even remembers come to that, it is the 24th. No celebrations through, well might push the boat out and swig a couple of very large doubles in the evening.....Rolling Eyes

Casdok - Brilliant news about agreed funding for your darling Son 'C''s placement, I am so very pleased for you both.

Zoe - Sorry to hear that you are leaving PC, I have loved reading your many contributions of wonderful flowers, indeed was looking forward to reading and catching up with your diary's. I wish you the very best for the future and everything you do in life.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Frances's Avatar Good evening to you Camilla, and all sorts of happy anniversary wishes to you!

I hope to see you back here late this evening, but think that I will now get myself a little updated on whatever it is that may have been going on here, since I took a peek many hours ago while having breakfast.

Camilla's Avatar Good evening Frances and @themill,

I have just been over to answer my PM, now going to pop kettle on, and raid the cookie jar, back in a jiffy...

Frances's Avatar Camilla, keep that kettle on. I still have to do some more catching up on what's going on around here.
@themill, are you also trying to figure out what has been going on?

See you soon.

Camilla's Avatar Back again with hot tea, have eaten the cookies.... oh, and went to kitchen sink to see a poor wee spider nearly sinking down into plughole, I have rescued him of course from a near drowning.

Camilla's Avatar Just going to check blogs, seriously overdue from reading them, if you are still awake later would love to continue with our chat, if not sweet dreams, and sleep well.

Frances's Avatar Wee spider is yet another Camilla rescue victory.

Having roamed around a bit, I have no idea what it may have been that may have happened on the site today.

But, on my own terra ferma, I was at the shop before 9, met the weekly cleaners, got the shop restocked, and, after my first staff colleague arrived before 10, we opened our doors and got going!

Retail is an amazing profession for any of you all who have never been on the other side of the counter, so to speak.

Constantly challenging, and can be exhausting. My company's spring line has clearly struck gold with our customer base, and our sales are amazing.

Since I keep wondering when we will be hit with the recession wave that is spreading across our nation, I do welcome every positive day, even though ... I am so very, very tired.

Frances's Avatar Pleasant dreams to any folks whose eyes may still be open.

I have another early start tomorrow morning, but ... because of our time zones, I will have a chance to see how Thursday has greeted you while I have my breakfast coffee, juice, egg and toast. With butter!

Camilla's Avatar Thank you for your happy anniversary wishes Frances.

Continued success with sales at the shop, I still remember my happy days behind those counters, and dressing those maniquins of window dressing, even then much money changed hands.

I still have a lot of catching up to do here, but will continue when I am more refreshed after good night's sleep.

Enjoy the breakfast, sounds yummy. Night Night, and sweet dreams.
Sleep well Frances, see you tomorrow.

Night Night @themill, hope you can pop over to Owl Post again tomorrow, sweet dreams.

Exmoorjane's Avatar Bleary eyed in Exmoor today. James had a nightmare at 3am and I couldn't get back to sleep until 5am when, yup, he had another one. Aaaghhh. Did think about coming down and logging on to talk to Pondside, Frances and maybe Cowgirl but would have disturbed the dogs. Crying or Very sad
