A week past...
This is an ode to a growing beard that is now lost. Somehow a 'tired from moving fabric to new work room' Justin used bare clippers on his beard instead of his usual 'just trimming' length. He is now talking to his little stubble, begging it to grow faster and telling it off for being so grey.
What has made the beardless one ever so happy is finding a rogue jar of Marmite at the back of the cupboard. The Marmite factory was damaged in the 2011 Christchurch earthquake and there is now huge shortage...you can't buy the stuff anywhere. Not that I care - I am a Vegemite gal, but Kiwi Justin can't be happy without his Marmite. The jar is currently under guard by the Marmite security in our pantry - no one is allowed to touch it!
We've had lots of sunsets and evening drives. So very pretty!
And, as you would know by now, we're currently relocating the business into a new work + show room. That means packing all of our fabric for easier transportation. It's amazing what I have come across - two Lucienne Day cafe curtains, Verner Panton Mira-X etc. This is a little sampler, but the 50s design is just so today - I love it.
As we knew we were relocating this year I had already packaged at least half of the fabric into 50L containers. These are just two that have already been moved.
And the big part of the move is relocating all of the website 'live' stock in order! We're want to literally take it out of the shelves in line and get it into our new shelving in line. That way the disruption to the online part of our business should be reduced to around a week...if not less.
