posting and keeping on

More cards in the Etsy shop.

Took a few of the new Seasonal ones to a cafe in Prestwick, but the new owners are not interested really...so I just left some seasonal cards and all of the images of the cafe .  Some will be good enough to sell elsewhere. I doubt if I'll see any sold by January, so I can gracefully retreat from there and try a cafe in Ayr.

Which has far better coffee....and exceedingly good food...and art on the walls....

Keeping on keeping on at home...looking forward to starting box moving next week. Sorting papers and filling the shredder and recycling and rubbish bins.

Keeping the Pirate going,but he is finding all this stress hard work.

I'm finding it hard to raise enthusiasm for training be it gym or the turbo trainer..I'd love just to go out and potter on the bike, but the thought of getting cold and gritty and wet.....we're missing the worst of the storms, but it still gets pretty miserable.

Looking at the weather report this evening doesn't really offer anything nice for the next few days :( Definitely stick with the second cafe - especially if the coffee is good!

The Prestwick Café owners sound rather blinkered. I don't know on what basis you sell these cards, but even if they only made a small amount from their sale, it's always a good public relations exercise. Go elsewhere next year.

Cro, the previous owner of the cafe took no cut and encouraged artists and craftspeople as it brought in business for her too....I wouldn't object to the cafetaking a cut, but they don't seem interested..instead of a kitchen dresser with everyones work on it, there is one small table....
