It's true. I am behaving like a woman possessed. Probably because I am a woman possessed.
I have already wrapped up not one, but two of Annabel's famous bacon and egg pie, and put them in the fridge. (Yes Mum, they were completely cool before they went into the fridge.)
Why the baking frenzy?
Because I do not know what possessed me to think that it was a good idea to offer Milly an 'eleven and a third' birthday party. It seemed like a brilliant idea at the time. Her birthday falls on the 5th July, which is always in the school holidays. No-one is available for a birthday party. So, Guy Fawkes, 4 months exactly later (hence the '11 and a third'), seemed like a good alternative. I also thought she might forget about it. I thought wrong. I also had no idea back then, that I would be fully immersed in moving Small Acorns at the same time. Wrong again. So, yes, we've invited 8 of her friends, and, to make it more fun for Brunnell and I, we've invited their families too. I think the tally is about 35 so far. For a barbeque. And the capital of cool is promising to be just that - cool....and rainy.
I told you - a woman possessed.
On the less frenetic side of life, the computer crash was total and deadly, with nothing salvageable or recoverable at all. I've been trying to come to grips with a new point of sale programme, trying to reload inventory, trying to pack, trying hard to delegate, getting ready for a moving sale which starts on Monday, thinking of the new store a lot, and generally going nowhere fast.
Today our billboard went up on the front of our new store, proclaiming to the world where our new location is going to be. I was so excited when I saw it. This was the result of our photoshoot efforts, and our overstuffed suitcases look amazing (if I do say so myself)!
So now I may take Mise's advice, and retreat back to the bathroom to yell instructions through the door.
And cook a few sausages on the barbie...
