I was sooo lucky; a colleague is starting up a website creation business and she created it for free for me as a first practise!!! I have signed a contract for maintenance but I am very happy!

Heather, there are flags on the homepage of Shelley's website and if you click on the Union flag, the page magically becomes written in English!  smug

I'll try that again!

Fantastic, Shelley. Revving up the Empire and all that. Great achievement.

Somehow I missed the September posts with the shots of your stall. It looks absolutely gorgeous and enticing.

You are moving and shaking. No stopping you now, babe! ok magic big_hug

Never knowingly underfed

thx again Danny!!  Just received a call from a delightful lady who visited the stall on the first day of trading... she called to see if it was at all possible to send her some more as it was '' the most delicious jam she had ever tasted!!''  smilesmilesmilesmile

Couldn't send her any as it is tooo expensive, but it was really thrilling!

 

I have also been asked by a local big company to donate a couple of jars for the national TV telethon evening.... the word is out!!

Bummer!  I hope it all gets happy and bright for you soon.  It's guaranteed to make you miserable when things break down - and then the Tax-man steps up.  big_hug

I'll try that again!

WOW! Well done Shelly. Your stall looks very tempting & pretty with all the colours. Also, congratulations on getting the website up & running, an introduction to the local store, the pizza lady and the telethon!!!! Looks like you're off to a cracking start.welldone

Life is uncertain ………… eat dessert first!
