Keeping up with time

Welcome again
Time, its a funny old thing isnt it. As i sit here now typing this i realised my plan to do an update every monday didnt quite go to plan even by the second week of operation. Whats the reason for that? Well time mainly or the simple lack of it. Many people think people who run their own businesses can keep 9-5 hours but that simply isnt the case. Only last night i was online at 9.30pm processing and order that had been put through.
I suppose in this 24hr a day operation now of online selling its an occupational hazard but still there is never enough time. Even as i write this im photographing more stock to go online this evening. Ok per item it doesnt take long but if you have 30 or 40 items to do those few minutes begin mounting up and a few minutes turns into a few hours.

Am i complaining about any of this? No of course not, this is what i enjoy and its great to meet so many people who share my enthausiasm for the hobby and want to see it flourish and grow and hopefully long may it continue.

On a side note my layout Llwydd town will be appearing at the Calne model railway show on the 23 and 24th of January and Calne Leisure Centre. If your going dont hesitate to stop and say hi.

A new year, a whole list of things to do!

Well thats the christmas and new year festivities out of the way we can now concentrate on the new shop. Its only 5 weeks away now so we are very busy getting all the paperwork sorted for the big day. Our new advert should be in the Feburary issue of Railway Modeller and our ebay shop is nearly ready to go live.

We also attended our first toyfair at Thornbury Leisure Centre. It was very successful with many of Richards current customers coming to see us to see, who we were and what we were going to do. From all the feedback we recievedit  was very positive so the excitement is growing!

We are also attending the NEC toyfair on the 14th of Feburary 2016 where we hope to have some very special offers available. We will also have some shop only offers from the 10th of Feburary so pop down and have a look.

Anyway lots to do and never enough time to do it all in!
