The end of an era

I unfortunately missed wishing you all a Merry Christmas so I will be early with my good will message for the New Year instead. Happy New Year to you all and I hope 2014 is a prosperous one for everyone.

As you already know I have been working my 2 month notice and finally finished on Christmas
Eve.  It was a very emotional time for me and much sadder than I could have imagined. We did however manage to have quite a lot of fun too.

 Well now it is time to get on with the rest of my life.  The shop is still a long way from being open and we have agreed that we start the hard work again tomorrow.  We have had quite a long break so we need to get cracking again.  There is loads to do including a trip to every Argos in the district to buy a certain type of shelving I need.  Such fun!

The Shop Floor

It seems such a long time since I chatted with you all.  As you know my time is currently being taken up with the new shop which I can tell you is coming along nicely thank you.
We uncovered a full quarry tile floor recently and tried desperately to clean it.  It was unfortunately damaged beyond recovery due to careless previous owners.
It was absolutely tragic but in the time we have to get up and running we just couldn't do it.
So here is the beautiful alternative.  I love it and it makes the place look wonderful.  I am so proud and excited I could burst. The finishing touches are being done today together with the middle room and toilet.
The walls will get a makeover tomorrow.
I have now dropped another day at work on the lead up to finishing completely so hopefully this might free up more time to blog.
