Our Doors finally opened...

Our doors finally opened on Saturday i was like a little girl on her first day of school, I was up and dressed at 7am (now that's a first for me). Our shop looked amazing and it was one of our busiest day's ever, the beautiful comments from friends and my customers were overwhelming, the gifts the messages and the flowers thank you from the bottom of my heart! we have been closed for 10 days and I don't think Paul and I slept for more than 5 hours a night and after lots of panicking, a few tears (from only me of course) and a mix of emotions we made it, thank you to my Dad who helped me endlessly especially when tomorrow he is about to have open heart surgery but gave his time regardless, Paul who is my rock I couldn't have done it with out you and to my kids all six of them thank you! Saturday being our first trading day was better than I could have imagined my loyal customers and so many new ones and especially men, we had so many visit our store, i think they loved all the comfy sofa's I often saw a hubby sitting on a sofa reading my books and it put a smile on my face it felt like a home and that's exactly what i wanted to achieve!
