Very quiet Christmas at home – although the shop was very busy, especially with Internet orders – thank you all very much. New Year was disastrous as far as the weather was concerned so nobody dared to go out ‘first-footing’ – the wind would have blown them away never to be seen – just like Brigadoon! Anyway, took the opportunity to go visiting sister in Ayrshire for a couple of days and have just arrived back to 496 emails (489 of them junk) and telephone calls from people wondering why I am not answering the phone. Anyway, will start to experiment in February with some new designs for the candles and hopefully come up with some more unusual items to add to the already burgeoning stock – watch this space!!
