We have just recently returned from a long week-end in Fowey, Cornwall to celebrate my birthday and we had a splendid time from start to finish. The weather was glorious and we were even able to eat lunch outside in October! We sampled an abundance of fish and seafood and surprisingly no cream teas. It was also a chance to visit some new National Trust properties and Trerice and Antony were really interesting small properties. We also revisited the gardens at Trellisick after a trip on the King Harry Ferry. Cornwall has so much to offer and we even got in a long distance coastal walk, which was very testing but made worthwhile by the glorious views and the pint of cider at the end.
Now we are back at base we are well into preparations for the Dazzle Exhibitions in London and Manchester. Next week the work will start to come in for our National Theatre show which opens on 8th November. This is a very exciting time as we are never sure what the designers will send us, particularly the recent graduates. Both of the London managers will be joining me to help with all the checking and sorting, so it will be pretty full on.
We are also very busy with our online website where a 20% discount offer for the month of October has led to a huge number of sales. Christmas shopping has started early online!
