I'm having a busy, busy day today. I have a lot of new stock to get onto the website, but it's not an easy (or quick) process. It is easier these days though, now that I have my portable photo studio which makes getting good light so much less a matter of luck. Before I invested in the lighting etc I had to take all my photos early in the morning to get the right light - it's just too dark in this cottage. It still takes a long time, but I like to think that the website looks relatively professional! I have to say that although I have made it sound like hard work, it isn't really, I just like to think of it as advanced play.
As I have been spending a lot of time sitting on my behind, making, pricing and taking photos I have to get out and exercise a bit - there seem to be so many programmes on lately about health/weight loss/general fitness. Dick and I can often be seen stomping round the countryside, and we are keen on doing ten minute speed walks to raise our heart rates. It seems to be working - we're both getting a lot thinner (I've lost 24lbs, am so pleased and can't help but have a quick boast, sorry). Dick has been wearing his new Fatface hat which covers his ears, so no more complaining about cold ones. This morning we gathered some firewood - so many branches have come down this winter in the storms, so we carry them back to the barn for firewood. Otto was a little disappointed that he couldn't carry this particular branch!
I have started putting the new stock on the website, and this will be an ongoing process, so keep an eye out in the new items section.
