After posting yesterday about trying to keep our order dates as late as possible I was really amazed at how orders continued to pour in - quite a different pattern from last year.
I began to get worried that we would end up posting orders out at the last possible minute.
I began to get worried about weather forecasts and rumours of vomiting bugs sweeping the area.
I don't really like the stress of hoping that people get their orders delivered on Christmas Eve.
I don't really like getting phonecalls from people who have just remembered that they need their order for 15th and can I speed it all up a bit.
So we have decided to blink and to make today our last order date before Christmas
Just making the decision has made me feel a lot more in control - and now I shall go and concentrate on getting the 560 orders we have waiting made, packed and out the door in an efficient and happy manner!
Hope you all have a fantastic day.
