Thankfully there's a bank holiday weekend so I can spend every waking hour (and hours I should stiill be sleeping) down getting everything ready for opening day.
As fast as I can tick one item off my 'to do' list I think of another one.
I spent most of today pricing up hundreds of rolls ribbon and then trying to sort flowers out. At home I had them sorted by colour order but to make life easier in the shop they need to be sorted into price order. The shop looks like a bombsite when I left at 9pm tonight and as I've got a customer coming at 10:45 tomorrow morning I've got to be there by about 6am to try and get some kind order there.
It will be worth it has become my chant - I really really wise the rain would stop so I can get my cards and paper over there.
My very talented husband has started assembling my sign. My name is now on it in lovely ivory acrylic letters. The bottom of the shop panels are now a very vivacious lime green so its going to make it very easy to spot when I give directions.
Well I'm going to sign off now as its 12.17am and I can hardly keep my eyes open. Since I've been home I've been decorating lovespoons to give out to customers on the day. Its going to be fab for anyone who comes and I know they'll be really surprised and never ever guess that its been 3 weeks since I signed the contract.
Next update tomorrow
