A few pics

I hope everyone is keeping warm and snug in this very cold weather, it seems never ending!! We had a great day sledging on Sunday though, it did seem a little weird sledging along the sea front!!! Fin and Gabs were in their element, having such fun. Gabs however did not go down the big hills that Fin went down, though I am not surprised.
I have taken a few pics of inside my little shop for you to see, I have not taken a picture from outside as I had ice on my windows inside two days and also because at the moment it is painted black and red which are not my colours at all so I will show you the whole outlook once it is painted in my choice of colour! The outside is going to be the same colours as the little dresser inside.

I have had a lot of visitors and lots of great comments which is so lovely. I love having my own little shop more than I ever imagined! Gabs loves to help me though I need to ensure I have a never ending stream of paper as she is constantly drawing! She likes to put price tickets on the stock! (Fin likes to write them!) even Will seems to quite like it! I have two little helpers on a Thursday for me! My Mum and her trusty partner in crime Eileen! Mum and Eileen have been friends for years and years, in fact Eileen seems to have always been around! She is the proud grandma of newly born Lily Rose and also has another granddaughter Blossom from her daughter Sarah and her husband Craig. Sarah and I have been friends since forever obviously! They kindly offered to open for me each Thursday as I work in Whitby on Thursdays. Good old Mum and Eileen!!
Time is running out towards Christmas now!! I need to fit in present swaps somehow on my way to work!! I am sure I will manage it, somehow!!!
I am glad to say however that I have finished shopping, wey-hey!!! Wrapping is another story! Hope everyone else is well on their way to a lovely calm Christmas!
