April "in like a lion, out like a lamb", Cologne and Cotton and another container delivery


“In like a lion, out like a lamb” is the traditional saying for April, I rather like the wool connection, so thought it could be the opener for today’s blog. 

We have all been beavering to get a large order of the new Junior Range prepared for Cologne and Cotton, I was hoping to get all of it sent out by the end of this week but, as is the way with these things, discovered yesterday that the print colour on the new boxes is not quite right.  Back to the drawing board and a week’s delay….

Yesterday we had our latest container- this time we shared with some local friends who ship vintage/classic cars from New Zealand back to the UK.  It was a first for both of us and quite amazing to see the container opened up and 3 cars suspended from the ceiling!  A very good example of Kiwi ingenuity at its best.  No doubt it would be banned leaving from the UK like that, but it seems to work perfectly.  Even better all the pillows were put inside the cars which helped protect the leather upholstery!  A strange combination, but it all worked. 

To end on a circular note; in yesterday’s container was a wonderful load of lovely lambskins, which always prove popular and however many we order, we always seem to run out.  The lovely thing about them is that everyone looks and feels different, which makes them really special gifts.  Speaking of gifts, I wonder if any of my boys will think about “Mother’s Day” on Sunday…..
