At last, we now have a presence on Not on the High Street – an online shopping marketplace, jam packed full of lovely things. I have had about 3 months of technological challenges condensed into two weeks trying to understand the ins and outs of posting up information, but, finally we have succeeded and lo and behold a White Cloud shop now features. Worryingly I carefully put all my notes to one side, but now, naturally I can’t find them so fingers are tightly crossed that no major changes are needed.
Yesterday we said farewell and bon voyage to our middle son- off on 4 months of travelling to New Zealand and Fiji. For all the heartache and pain of prodding and poking him to get ready there was a very real lump in my throat seeing him set off through Passport Control with a cheery, “I’m okay” sort of wave. The worst bit is knowing that he is somewhere still up in the air and still hours away from his final destination. How different travelling is now, no lovely printed ticket with tear out stubs, no reliance on letters for communication and reverse charge calls. Maybe it is a little too easy now to keep in touch? A little bit of self reliance is not a bad thing.
Anyway, he’s off on his adventure and we are madly envious that he is going to lovely warm sunny weather (at least strictly speaking they are now heading for winter, whereas we have spring beckoning!).
Work continues apace to our new brochure, furious amounts of backwards and forwards with photos and texts, oh the wonders of the modern age! We hope to have this printed and ready by mid February and it will be exciting to see our new brand image become part of the brochure. Magniwool is also undergoing a revamp with the intention that each will be a stand alone brochure but able to be sent with the other.
We have decided to refine our range of Lambskins and Sheepskins and will not be reordering the large white sheepskins next time around. Part of the reason is that we never seemed to get the same thing twice, but more importantly we feel we want to concentrate on the others. We have 3 white sheepskins left, and that will then be the end of them- if you think you would like one, please get in touch as soon as possible!
