We had an ordinary mundane start to the day dropping Little Prince off at school before me and Princess Lollipop drove over to OUR shop. The weather has picked up a little, well its not raining at least, but its still very cold in OUR shop! We don't think there is anything we can do to safely heat the place with Princess Lollipop running round, so we'll just have to invest in more woolly pullies!!

We've had a few enquires already today. A phone call from someone wanting to know if we could copy a large framed photograph (its too big for her scanner), so that she could include it in a book she is making about the history of her family's farm. I told her that Mr Messy would be able to photograph the photograph and what he charges for that service, she checked our opening times and said she would pop down before weekend. We had someone come into OUR shop and ask if we could frame a signed football shirt to match one they already had. I couldn't find a price on our standard list, so I took her details and will get back to her. The other enquiry was a Mum who wanted her two boys (7 and 10) professionally photographed, as all they'd had for years was their school photos. She didn't seem to understand the concept of "lifestyle" photography and was asking if Mr Messy adds backgrounds in to the photographs afterwards!! I think I managed to explain what it is we do though, and she wanted to book there and then! Unfortunately Princess Lollipop had completely messed up my computer by mashing the keyboard, so I've taken her details and Mr Messy will ring her tonight to sort it all out.

Princess Lollipop has not been a her usual happy self in OUR shop today. She has been clingy and whiny and says she wants something to eat and then throws a tantrum and screams if you offer it to her!! Hopefully its just because she's tired (she was very restless last night), she's gone for an early nap is is soundly asleep now, fingers crossed she wakes up in a better mood!!
