I've been meaning to start a blog for ages. Things will look a little basic at first whilst I get the hang of this blogging thing but I should get the hang of it seeming as I spend nearly as long on my PC as I...hmm...I'm always on my PC!
I also thought I would start in earnest because my business is about to have it's first birthday on the 4th November. I was considering asking my friends and family (husband included) to wear a little tight white t-shirt with the U-Handbag logo on it (which would've looked lovely I think) to celebrate the day but the menfolk didn't seem really enthusiastic, must be because it's too cold for tight white t-shirts...
Ahh yes, U-Handbag's first birthday sniff, sniff! I really want to thank every one of my customers old and new, who have visited U-Handbag over the last year. I must say that one of the nicest things about running this little business is the customers. You are such a lovely bunch of people! I have worked in a few other industries in my life time and you lot are the friendliest, and warmest folks I have worked with, ever. I don't mean this to sound like a Bafta award acceptance speech but it's thanks to you that I really love my work (and selling pretty things is nice too). In fact this doesn't feel like work at at all. It's also dead handy if you love making bags as much as I do because I can dip into the stock whenever I need a metal thingamybob!
It's been great year. We're still a small business; a happy team including myself, few others who help when it gets hectic, and there's also Beans the very friendly dog who has a bean-bag (of course) underneath the computer desk and keeps my feet warm whilst I answer emails during the day.
