I went with Janey to pick up the latest shop stock yesterday. The shop continues to fly - yesterday was the busiest day by far - just short of 300% up on 'target'! I couldn't believe it when I came to lock up last night - we knew records were being set, but not to that extent. Very satisfying. I expect that most people would have thought we were mad to use a third of our shop floor for computers, particularly in one so small. But it works.
Popped down to Aggie yeterday to see Tom and Ernie - Ernie was in the middle of a photo shoot for Finisterre - a new underwear range! Apparently he loves nothing more than prancing around in his smalls - he was loving it.
As is the Surf's Up! way, we're looking around for the next project. With amazing staff in place we're able to look at ventures perhaps further afield. I've been spending quite a bit of time looking at this - Janey's great. "Okay here's the plan...." "No" .. despite my disappointment, on reflection she's always right. Last night we were in tears laughing about some of the funny things that have happened in the surf school. The funniest of times.
I was chatting to Sam this morning about the season. We were discussing the impact that kids have on your life. You think you couldn't possibly be any busier or more tired than you already are and then along comes a little thing that just takes over. Billy was real challenge as a baby, the worst sleeper on the planet - I spent night after night driving around bumpy lanes just to 1) let Janey get some sleep and 2) to get him to sleep. Tough, tough days - but somehow so much easier being the Dad! I asked Janey the other day if she wanted any more kids, last chance saloon. Decision made - that's it, the jobs a goodun.
Great to see on the news that women prefer men with Moobs and Belly's as lifetime partners. Janey's very lucky to be going out with a man with such outstanding attributes!! Note to self - get fit! She has commented recently that I've started to walk like my Dad - my achilles have always caused me issues. Note to self - do some stretching!
