Can anyone quite believe we're at the end of September already? They do say that time flies when you're having fun and this month (this year in fact) has just been ridiculous, but fun never the less.
Infact I've been feeling so good that I've been heading out every morning straight from the school run for a 5K jog before starting work! I'm not sure how long the motivation will last through the winter months but I'm sticking at it while the going is good.
It's been a really busy month in the studio too, with the arrival of Bertha Blue Bird, the new kiln as well as orders pouring in from last months special offer. It's been a couple of weeks of nose to the grindstone but I'm all up to date now ready for the immanent surge of orders in the lead up to C*&!$%£@s!
P.S - See my post about Xmas Deadlines here!
I hate to mention the 'C' word prior to December, however I've had so many people asking about last order dates for Christmas. I refused point blank to work out Christmas deadlines during the summer holidays but true to my word, since Mini Goddess has started school I've sat myself down and braved it.
Now, what you have to remember is that the order date isn't the relevant date, getting your order completed depends on when the ashes arrive with me. So to get your order back to you before Christmas I need the ashes with me prior to the dates below:
Africa, Middle East - 14th November 2016
Asia, Cyprus, Eastern Europe (except Czech Republic, Poland and Slovakia) Far East (including Japan) Australia, Greece, New Zealand - 21st November
Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Poland, Canada, Finland, Sweden, USA, Austria, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg - 28th November
UK Mainland - 5th December.
Provided I have your ashes with me by these days I'll work morning, noon and night to make sure your orders are back with you in time for Christmas. Please remember you will need to order earlier than this to allow time for your order pack to be sent out to you and for the ashes to be returned to me.
