We Are Open! (again)

That’s right, as if opening a bookshop once in a year wasn’t stressful enough, we went and did it twice! I think the stress may have got to us all a bit more this time round. The madness set it and we created a musical theatre number to deal with it! This is something we …

Lets talk about January

  … Lets talk about you and me. Lets talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be. Leanne just said to me… “there’s been some high points in January”, “Like what?” I enquire, for the purposes of the blog. *Blank face*. I suppose the high point is that we won’t …

Opening Day

OK, the observant amongst you will know that our opening day was 5 days ago now… So guess what…We… Got… Busy!!! Who’d have thunk it? Planning and building a bookshop is hard work but it is NOTHING compared to the sheer exhaustive adrenaline rush of welcoming people through those newly opened doors and waiting for …

Everybody needs a Greg

This will be a short post, it’s 12.25am and it’s been a long day. What’s been happening? We have been on our holidays for a week. The weather was miserable but we still managed to climb Scafell Pike and have a generally splendid time with 15 of our family and 3 dogs. Who needs weather …

2 weeks in, 3 weeks to go

…and what a 2 weeks! It’s hard to put into words everything we have achieved in the time and all thanks to our glorious network of friends and family. Without them we would be nowhere and none of which we expected. Day 1/2 – all wallpaper stripped and walls prepped Day 3/4/5/6/7 – all 3 …
