Where on earth did last week go? Seems like only yesterday I wrote my ramblings and managed to mess up posting it on Facebook again...
It's strange as the week flew by so quickly I felt like I didn't achieve what I wanted to. One of the biggest benefits of me writing this blog is it gives me a few minutes to reflect and review what I actually did.
We had a mid week show again on Wednesday, at Warwick University. Apart from being bitterly cold and traffic an absolute nightmare it was a good day. Was great to see lots of people come back to see us who had purchased before Christmas. When I say that I genuinely mean it, you don't have to come back to buy, simply saying hello and if you enjoyed your purchase can lift our spirits (my god a pun) on a cold day in January.
This is how interesting my life is now, and makes me sound really old but hey ho I'll tell it anyway. I was really excited to try out my new woollen boot insoles. After standing with blocks of ice in my boots the previous week I wanted to see how these bad boys failed. I have to say they worked a treat, my feet were toasty for most of the day...no I'm not sponsored by the company that makes them. But if they are looking for people to sponsor I will gladly offer my services. Blimey that's 20 seconds of your life you will never get back...sorry
We finally completed making the toffee vodka bar, lights and everything. It must look good because even the 4 women who I live with openly said 'that's cool' or 'that looks great'. You could of knocked me down with a feather...a bloody compliment from the powers that be..my wife and 3 daughters. Maybe there is hope for me.
We have our first venture out with the bar this week and if it all goes tits up, it doesn't matter, after being with the wife for over 20 years I have finally impressed her! Oh and I have my own bar..happy days.
It's the wife's birthday today so Sunday was spent treating her round Norwich. It was nice just spending the day together. We started with a full English breakfast and then hit the shops. Going in every ladies clothes shop around. Fair play to her she didn't spend hours and hours deciding and it was a fun day. As I have to have a moan about something, can the manager of the shopping center please put more signs up saying the toilets are closed, so I don't rush to it in desperate need (like a 5 year old) to find it closed and then having to go up two flights of stairs and run/shuffle/waddle to the other side of the center to find toilets that are open. It then didn't help that as I sat down in the cubicle my phone fell out of my pocket and slid under the partition into next doors. I won't explain how I got it back...
That's enough of that talk...we're onto this week. Have a great week. Good luck to everyone in the Toffee Vodka Competition, it's being drawn today. Off to creep round the Mrs as a Birthday treat for her.
