Back in harness and noses to the proverbial grindstone!


A change is as good as a rest – after a week of wonderful inertia at Dent Railway Station on the Settle-Carlisle railway, it is now back to the day job and the start of a New Year.

Sue has torn herself away from the sewing machine and has start a classification of hundreds of zipped clear plastic bags that are surplus to requirements and needing to be rehomed (anyone interested?)  Bev is back in the office tomorrow morning – a good thing too as there quite a few accounts to be brought up to date…  Jacquie has got lots of trade customers to telephone, three of whom placed January orders with us this morning.  Fortunately both Caroline and Guy spent a couple of days between Christmas and New Year wading through paperwork and filing (what exactly is a paper-less office?) and have come back to (relatively) empty desks. 

Parcelforce has returned to its normal schedule and today we have sent out numerous parcels, including a special package of sheep soaps to the Clerk of the Worshipful Company of Woolmen,  and a lovely soft double sheepskin rug to a friend of a friend who was introduced to us by Guru Kaur.   It could be the forecast of colder weather, or just mere precaution, but we have also noticed an increase in sales of Lanolin Intensive Cream and Hot Water Bottles…
