Hello everyone, Paul here.
I thought that since Barbara and Dave were flying home today, I would takeover the blog and fill you in with what has been going on back here in good old blighty and what I have been upto since joining the Clarity Family.
Firstly, apologies to all of the New Design Club members, unfortunately the January issue has been delayed and will go out towards the end of the month – but it will be worth the wait.
Secondly, here is some of the Clarity Team responsible for picking, packing and dispatching all of the orders that you place online or over the phone – if you place your order by phone, you will probably have spoken to one of them.
Debbie, Steven & Tom
Katy & Izzy
Since returning from the Christmas break, they have been working flat out so that you can get your Clarity goodies as quickly as possible.
However, just when they thought that they could slow down from the “Gray Day” weekend, we now have the Club Members Unmounted Stamp Sale running, together with orders from when Barbara was on TV at the start of the month.
The Wee Houses and Wee Shops designed by Jim here in the office are flying out!
Lee and Nick the stamp makers, are starting to feel a lot like Bob the Builder with all the Houses and Shops under construction.
So, although it says on the Clarity website that orders may take 5-10 working days, it may take a little longer.
We also have another picking, packing and dispatching team here at Clarity that deals just with TV and Trade orders.
Here they are processing all the orders from Maria’s Groovi TV Show on Hochanda yesterday.
Jayne, Tom & Ian
The new Roses & Trellis Groovi Plates sold out in the 2nd hour!
If you missed the show, it is being repeated again today at 5pm
So, what else can I tell you…………
I officially joined the Clarity Family on a full time basis at the beginning of the year after working in London for over 20 years but it really does not feel like I have just started a new job as I knew everyone beforehand.
Do I miss working in London? What do you think?
Obviously, I miss all of my old work colleagues, how could I not, but I do not miss the daily commute – I read earlier this week that trains were being delayed due to the wrong type of sun!
Here is my new workspace
I think I need another computer, I wonder if can persuade Barbara and Dave for one of these
Okay, so what else can I tell you about……………….
All I can say is that we have lots and lots and lots and lots of amazing stuff happening at Clarity this year
Yes, I know I’m a tease, but I really can’t say anything yet!
So as a treat (and whilst Barbara and Dave are in the air) if you leave a comment below, on Friday I will randomly choose a comment and send the winner a £20 Clarity Voucher.
Whilst talking about Blog winners, I still have 2 unclaimed prizes from the 10 days of Christmas Blog – Day 9 (Gillyflower) and Day 8 (Ruth) so if you are reading this, please can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Right, I better get this posted before the plane lands!
