It was a pretty uneventful morning getting Little Prince to school and getting to the shop. I did check with my friend across the road if she would be in to receive a parcel a courier is delivering today, and she is so I left a sign (with arrows!!) on the door and hopefully the parcel will be delivered ok :-) Its a Christmas present for Princess Lollipop, a wooden play kitchen - she loves "lets pretend" already and being wooden it will be strong enough to withstand Little Prince's "help" too!! I can't believe I'm already getting things for Christmas, its unheard of for me to be getting organised already!!! But I've actually got one or two bits for the littlies!!
We had a quiet morning in OUR shop, our only visitor was Post Lady's husband. His Dad is the caretaker of the Vicarage across the road and they had come down to check out a problem the Vicar had reported. He waved to me from across the road, but I had no idea who it was till he came in lol. He complimented me on how great the shop looks and we chatted for a few minutes before he had to go and help his Dad. Princess Lollipop went for her nap pretty soon after his visit and no one came in until she woke up about an hour later. We had a Dad and his lovely (and very trendily dressed) little girl came in, Princess Lollipop just hid from her!! The Dad wanted to ask what sort of costs were involved in a photoshoot with Mr Messy and how much a large framed print (like those on display in OUR shop) would cost. The girls eyed each other up from behind their respective parents, while me and the Dad chatted lol. A Grandma came in a little later to enquire about booking a shoot for her three grandchildren, only she doesn't get much notice that they are coming round so wondered if we would be able to fit them in. I told her that Mr Messy was available on Friday, Saturdays and Sundays and if she has them on one of those days to give us a ring and we will see if we can fit them in. Or next visitor was another Grandma, who just wanted to know "What are you selling love?" lol. The great big sign saying "Photography" above the window doesn't seem to be giving many people a clue!!! She loved the photography samples we've got hanging in OUR shop, and said she would think about having her grandchildren photographed. She said her daughter was getting married soon, and apologised that the daughter had already booked a photographer! Ah well - at least she'll know we are here for the next one who gets married :-)
Princess Lollipop is currently amusing herself by sharing her apple with her "Nee Naw Horsee" (See Saw horsie) :-)
