Day 2


is better than Day 1.

Last night as i stood in an empty shop, no flowers, no stuffed birds, no re-appropriated science equipment, i wept.

A sudden realisation that my entire life is within these four walls. Workaholic doesn't even begin to cover it.

Today, things are better, there is now a plan. I didn't have a plan yesterday. It just seemed a good week to close.

and we have eaten Haribo.

and i am hindering operations by buying old school desks and giant gourds.

and i have almost stopped crying, i am now only crying because of the kindness of the other retailers on St. Paul's Street.

I think this is what people mean when they say it is a cathartic experience.

and creosote beams be gone.

Are the Haribos and physics books a lure to get GG over to help?

Because she's packing. Dry your tears help is on the way!

we could always swop - we have Goodwood Revival and over 11000 flowers to arrange - so want to visit the revamped shop.

good luck Miss P

It will all be worth it and just think how the shares in waterproof mascara will have escalated, if only we had known then insider trading on the FTSE would have been de rigeur xxx

Workaholic can't describe it because it's passion, not a disease. The luckiest people have this. You are a lucky girl, miss p. Carry on and have fun with the re- do!
Oh, and what's a Haribo.

We all know, it will look wonderful. Do not, even under trying circumstances, be tempted to use the giant gourds as weapons...
