Cowart's Common Room
On a Winter's Day

Uploaded Image

Well this is the last day (allegedly) but we have already received an order this morning, fortunately for something simple that just requires sending out.

It's a chance to show you again FN's wonderful piece of artwork. I wish there were only one box and that it were a wooden crate but instead there are about 120 cartons of labels piled up in various places awaiting collection on Monday.

We are still keeping a small broking operation and our single export customer (in the Seychelles) who buys DVD cases from us. Again that is a broking operation. We don't keep stock. He only orders once or twice a year anyway. Otherwise VIP Labels will be gone and dusted.
The customers are infuriating but I shall miss them.

Meanwhile today 'All the leaves are brown and the sky is grey and no doubt later I shall go for a walk 'on a winter's day.' To the bank as it happens.

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar The end of one era but the start of a new one, by July you'll wonder how you ever found the time to work.

The first Christmas after our PO was closed we were in Kirriemuir. Christmas day had been the Thursday, Boxing day the Friday and on Saturday morning we walked past their main PO and they were open - yes, yet again the powers that be had made them open for a 3 hour Saturday half day even though they were closed again on Sunday instead of just giving them 4 days off in a row.

I was sssoooooo tempted to run in waving my arms and shout "WOOHOO... I'M NOT WORKING!"and run back out again leaving HO to explain why.Twisted Evil

Thanks for posting for the larks Fennie.

A new venture will be on the horizon I am sure for you Fennie, worry not. Yes weather pretty much the same here today too not even a glint of sun like yesterday . Not a good night so feeling fragile this morning hopefully I will get into gear later after I have had a relaxing bubbly bath, late I know but lack of sleep lack of sleep!Very Happy

Have a good day everyone Very Happy

Re:
Camilla's Avatar Goodness FN you would have thought they would have given the post office staff 4 days in a row off wouldn't you. At least you didn't have to do it.Very Happy

Re:
Fennie's Avatar And another typical day at the labels' business. One order last night - simple off the shelf (except that the contents of the shelves are all packed away and then 'know this is your last day but can you print us some Electrical Safety Labels?' And because it makes things less complicated to do it today I have to miss lunch and do printing instead to have it all done by 2.30 when the courtier arrives. Rolling Eyes Off now to the bank and then a last clearing up and we are almost done. Very Happy

Are you having a retirement party now then? or at least dinner out someplace nice to mark the occasion.
