2014.. it's here! And what am I doing?

Well.. here it is a new year just started. As January comes to a close i am still thinking that I need to put way the XMAS decorations. Yes.. they are down.. but on the bed in the guest bedroom. And just another thing to do on the weekend.

At present we are cleaning out our home as we prepare to put it on the market. After all these years in Mark's family.. 56 this Easter… it is time for us to downsize to a newer, more modern home in the local area. It has been a wonderful family home with 4 double and 2 single bedrooms. In fact enough room for Mark to run his studio and gallery from home.

Speaking of Mark.. he is deep in the production of our next newsletter which should be in your letterbox the first week of March. (Good Lord willing and if the creeks don't rise) There is a lot of new product in there and I am sure you will just love what we have to offer in 2014. Looking forward to seeing you at the shop soon!.


P.S. Our new pup Chloe is now about 6 months old and is a real delight to come home to!

Chloe.. giver of unconditional love!

Welcome 2014... a year of promise!

So a hot New Year's Day is upon us. In between staying cool in the air conditioning I am cleaning out my hand bag and brief case for work tomorrow.

Looking back at 2013 it has been a bitter sweet year... but onwards and upwards with 2014. Every year seems to follow a similar pattern especially as we approach the end of the year. What we often call the silly season. Patience can be hard to find as we all go about our daily lives, despite the wonderful celebration of the birth of Christ. We are a Christian country, so I for one will never say "Happy Holiday Season"... political correctness has gone too far.

We have our best smiles on and are feeling refreshed. We look forward to being of service to you at the Boutique.

Happy New Year!
