Tuesday lunchtime and all is well – or sort of.
Kim, the ex-baby of the office until Ella came along is now wizzing around everywhere on her bike. I’m not sure how it’s classified, as either a moped or motorbike, but all I know is it makes me feel old when I tell her to take it easy and suggest that maybe she should get a car because it’s safer. I’m not sure when I became my parents, but apparently it’s a gradual change which effects us all.
A major crisis was averted yesterday after Annabel announced her glasses had gone missing over the weekend, and a well known national optician / chemist had told her it would be 10 days until she could get another pair. I am not sure how well the helpful advice was greeted, which included “pretend you are a celebrity and wear your prescription sunglasses indoors”, “maybe one of your boys took them into school for show and tell?”. Either way, she didn’t look impressed, but they turned up this morning as apparently “the dog had hidden them”.
Ella learnt what happens when you put fuel in your car and forget your purse. I don’t know whether its lovely to hear the innocence of youth, but when she told them “I’ll rush home get my purse and come back to pay it” they told her “thats okay, we will pay it on your behalf to reset the pump for the next person.” Before they could let her know the “you have 7 days to pay” she jumped in with “You are going to pay it for me, thanks” – I am not too sure they were impressed when they realised that she actually thought they were offering to pay for her fuel. Anyway, her promotion to public enemy #1 was avoided, she went back 20 minutes later and paid for it.
From a business perspective, all is well. Luvion monitors are still selling as quickly as we can get them into stock. The new Samsung monitors should be with us in the not too distant future and we are going to be appraising a new audio monitor which apparently has a range greater than any other audio monitor we’ve seen before. Exciting times ahead………
