Thanks for popping in. What a week of turmoil, eh. I do hope you are warm, dry and safe.
We’ve been ploughing through the new factory like locusts, getting everything in place, ready to start business over in the new place Monday.
It is really coming together now, and tomorrow I shall take a few pics to show you the progress. It is so exciting, all being in the same building, all moving together as a team and building our new camp. I love my little office too!
Some things you don’t figure out till you’re in the building, right? For example, the sun blazes through the windows on the left side of the building early in the morning, then swings round to the right side in the afternoon. And there are lots of big beautiful windows! Makes it quite hard to work when you can’t see the screen for squinting! So we let our fingers do the buying – and 13 sets of white Venetian blinds are being delivered tomorrow. The power of the internet, eh? Now we just need Dapper Dave to hang them! He’s handy with a drill, and he loves a bit of DIY, don’t you dear….
We moved the design department over this afternoon. The arty crowd! They basically loaded their Apple Macs into their cars and drove across town! Brother Steve said he’d move all the desks over first thing tomorrow morning. There is however, a little fly in the desk-moving ointment… When we installed them in the old building a few years ago, we hadn’t converted the barn next door into a huge, Groovi plate-acrylic-etching-Laser-mean-machine-factory! At that time we had just hoisted them up through the roller shutter doors and carted them in. In the meantime, we’ve built a window and door where the roller shutter is – now it’s way too tight to get them all out the same way they came in. So. Will it be the old take the window out to get the 3-piece suite in the living room trick? Or does Steve have another bright idea? We shall see….Either way, I know that he will get the job done. He is brilliant.
It’s ironic that just at such a critical point in Clarity business, when we are relocating, investing in new machinery, revving up and growing up, the world is in complete turmoil.
But it is what it is. This too shall pass, all of it – everything does. We will do our level best to keep going and do the next right thing. That’s all anybody can do.
I shall sit down this evening and rustle up a little crafty plan for us all; a little diversion and entertainment over the coming weeks. If we’re going to stay indoors, we may as well get arty crafty ! If I could afford it, I’d go buy a wheel and a kiln !!! But I can’t. Not just now. Next year maybe…
Love and Hugs
