Thanks for popping in.
Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Well today is a big day at Clarity. We have broken new ground – literally.
Let me explain….
I remember all too well the very first time we got a delivery ready to deliver up to Create & Craft, for the very first TV show.
It took forever to make the stock! But we were so proud of ourselves!
Dutchie and Duke wanted to be in on the action too. Ahhhh. They went off to Rainbow Bridge years ago now.
Here we see Dave, all ready for the off.
Little did we know then, that we would be making that trip up to Peterborough many times each month – for the next 10 years!
And today? Well today we have packed another truck; this time its destination is Düsseldorf, Germany – the home of QVC.
Paul, Dave and Steve have been sweating bullets over this one for many weeks, I can tell you!
This is a whole other ball park! Just look at the van this time !!!
Good job we bought a fork lift last month!
I bet Paul never wants to check another box, barcode or label again !!! Couldn’t have done it without him.
And it’ a good job Steve knows how to drive it too!
The lorry driver only speaks Spanish (muy handy), so I was just trying to tell Paul on the phone how to say, “This lot needs to be at the QVC warehouse at 7.30 Monday morning, or we are dead in the agua!”
Me? Nowhere near the building! I’ve been gearing up for the actual pilot show on 25th July.
In the words of Del Boy, “He who dares…”
But it just goes to show you. Slowly slowly, catchee monkey. I wonder if the Germans will like our Groovi system….I blimming hope so – or that Spaniard will be bringing it all back again !!
Time to have a coffee and – breathe –
Love & hugs,
