These last couple of weeks have been all about hospitals, doctor's office visits and coming to terms with illness and aging. Both involve lots of … [Read More...]
Well just a super quick note to say…yahoo! we finally got the PDQ!!!! We have begun to pack and ship orders. I’m hoping we will have all in the mail by the end of the week for those who ordered at CHA and those who ordered later they should ship next week.
Also for all you retailer’s holding out (thank you for your patience!) let me just say, we did a show in Ottawa this past weekend and literally SOLD OUT of 2 of our PDQ lines in 4 hours!!!!! They’re gonna go like hotcakes when you get them, so hang on for a couple of days more and you’ll reap the benifits I guarantee it. Not one negative comment at the show, only raves, delight and surprise that someone had finally created something that saves times and still looks fab.
Well it used to be that I would go out of my way to make a really big Easter dinner and hide all kinds of chocolate goodies around the house. This year, I’ve been so busy with Bisous, prep for shows and PDQ that I simply didn’t do it. Any of it. Kind of sad really. Thankfully, Robert remembered and bought one of those great little Lindt bunnies and I spent about 10 minutes this morning looking everywhere for the little guy. Nothing like some good chocolate bunny tail to make you forget that you don’t have time to enjoy all the things you used to do before your business became so all encompassing.
Another reason there was no special Easter supper is because I am expecting a girlfriend from out of town tomorrow who will be helping me with the consumer show we are exhibiting at on Saturday. So, as is with every time someone comes to visit, you realize all the "stuff" you’ve let slide in the house and you’re running around like crazy cleaning and doing things you’ve put off for years. I finally got some photos up in frames that I’ve had since we moved here, 8 months ago. I guess it’s good that I have people come and visit every once in a while. Gets the chores done!
We will actually be gone from Wednesday through till Sunday for this show in Ottawa, so no orders will ship during that time.
I am still waiting for delivery of PDQ. I have lost hope that I will be able to ship orders prior to leaving for Ottawa. I am sure that Canada Customs does not work tomorrow, Easter Monday, although it is not a statutory holiday in Canada and most everything else will be open. Tuesday delivery does not leave enough time for collating kits and shipping before we leave on Wednesday morning. So, I’m just going to take a deep breath, eat some more chocolate, not stress anymore about the shipment and just thank heavens that my own honey-bunny didn’t forget to hook me up today with something we all need more of….chocolate, I mean love, of course!
