I hope you are all keeping safe and well and doing all that you need to do to protect yourself and those around you?
So, we are stuck in the middle of a lockdown with all the pressures and hassle that entails and it is not a great deal of fun. Shops, pubs and restaurants are closed, people are furloughed and the kids are off school, I personally have never seen anything like it before and hope never to again, strange and scary times.
That said, we are all getting stuck in with home-schooling, baking, DIY and various crafts, including all manner of needlecraft, sewing, cross stitch and tapestry and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all, not just for your orders (and gosh, there are a lot of those!) but also for your patience and understanding in what I can only describe as one of the busiest, stressful and most manic times I have ever encountered.
Thank you for your kind words, your gifts, your patience and your understanding of the delays, stock issues and postal problems, thank you for your support, your encouragement and your conversations, for your terrible jokes, your hilarious stories and for sharing your crafting genius.
It is times like these that bring out the best in people but sadly, in some cases, also the worst but we won’t dwell on that, you know who you are.
For a giggle, I have penned a little light hearted poem,
A Retailer's Response
I wish to thank you lovely lot
For your continuing support
Through this testing, trying time
Thank you all for being so kind
Thanks again for your patience true
With my delays dispatching to you
For your understanding of the mail
Being slower than a snail
With the shortages of stock
And everything else that ran amok
Thank you all for being so great
When everything was and is still running late
Which brings me to those who scream and shout
The virus issues are not my fault
A needlework kit is not life saving
There is no need for misbehaving
There is no need for your rudeness
Which has caused some distress
To more than me, of that I’m sure
Luckily, there is a cure
So if a short memory you have got
Just remember, I have not
For those of you who went too far
I will remember who you are
And you will not be helped by me again
So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen!
Keep smiling and stay safe everyone,
