So much for a holiday. This year for Christmas, as I do every year, I got a skip. I spent every waking hour battling the garden and digging a drain (as you do). How many people spent Christmas morning digging a hole? Then once we got back to work we had to deal with a literal avalanche of orders, over two hundred and fifty parcels went out in the first four days back. Finally last friday we got caught up and now we are all behind again after the weekend. Just for good measure we are now getting ready for the upcoming Noelanders exhibition following which I am away on buying trips, it’ll be summer before I get caught up! I need to find another member of staff but more wages means more price rises unless I can find someone who want’s to work for free to support the cause of UK Bonsai. Any volunteers?
Anyhow, I did get four hours doing something I really wanted over the holidays. There is something quite unusual growing in my poly tunnel amongst the recently worked trees. My garage is now full and as it turns out a poly tunnel makes a very nice spot for a bit of dirty work 😉 Trouble is I keep getting distracted between wiring and spannering, carving and welding.
