Hi there to all my lovely customers and friends. I hope you and your family are all well, staying safe and keeping happy!
I have to say that I never dreamed Covid-19 would have such a profound effect on our lives, families and businesses but here we are! And as the saying goes “if you want to make God laugh, make a plan”…
You see I had a great plan to minimize the amount of time I spent in store to one week out of the month: it meant I could keep in touch with you all, keep in income dribbling in and keep you all in knitting supplies and notions. I was, to be honest, quite proud and pleased that I had come up with what seemed like a safe and sensible solution.
And then I got a letter from the government.
It was the letter that I thought I’d dodged two weeks ago. The letter deeming me high-risk. The letter that says I’m not allowed to go out or have face-to-face contact with anyone for 12 weeks. THAT letter. That stinking rotten letter that made me ugly-cry in the car after locking up the shop for the next few months.
So… it is with a heavy heart that I have to let you know that the shop isn’t open for business until around the beginning of July. Ugh! That may be one of the worst sentences I’ve ever written.
I 100% understand why and I will 100% adhere to the rules but I’m also gutted.
So the plans we had for our ten year anniversary will be slightly altered but they WILL happen. And they’ll have an extra dose of joy and love because I have a feeling we won’t take all this for granted again.
Sending out enormous virtual hugs to you all.
Keep knitting and crocheting.
