Busy in the real world…

Apologies that it’s been a bit quiet here but we’ve been somewhat pre­oc­cu­pied with non-virtual activ­it­ies includ­ing (but not limited to) painting the outside of the café, repaint­ing the loos, tearing up the hall carpet and painting the floor, adding a sparkly light fitting to the hall, spring cleaning the kitchen and repaint­ing the store room, adding new hanging rails and a new light fitting to the textiles area, moving nearly every bookcase and every book, adding shelf labels and lots of dif­fer­ent stock etc etc etc.

The changes seem to have been greeted with approval by most of our cus­tom­ers so far, apart from one who thinks that the hall light fitting reminds her of a Louise Bourgeois sculp­ture. I’m failing to take offence at this, as Bourgeois was quite an artist! (Well worth search­ing out the doc­u­ment­ary Tracy Emin did on their col­lab­or­a­tion).

So although we haven’t yet done every one of the tasks on our stu­pendously long to do list, we are once again open and looking forward to the season. Photos will follow when it stops raining long enough: painting the outside has involved dodging the down­pours!
