This morning, thanks to a phone still on Norwegian time, I accidentally got up an hour earlier than I meant to. Since, by the time I realised this, I was eating my hastily made breakfast it actually made the morning seem rather leisurely, which set the tone for the rest of the day.
I walked along the canal to meet Sarah (fellow K1 employee) at the farmers market.
And then we both went to work on a day that we had off. There was no way that we were going to miss today though. Lilith aka Old Maiden Auntmade a special guest appearance and she brought soooo much yarn (and although a lot of it sold, there was some leftover and I know she’s planning on listing it online. It’s beautiful stuff so I’ll be sure to let you know when she does).
Eventually we managed to tear ourselves away from Lillith’s mesmerising spinning to go for lunch and ice cream. And then we headed back to hang out at the store for the rest of the afternoon. It’s good to work somewhere I want to go to even when I’m not working!
p.s. Much as I love this place, it’s turned out not to be so safe for little Elijah. The wee guy’s gone missing and while it seems likely that he was stolen I’d like to think there’s a nicer explanation. Just on the offchance, if you’ve been in the store this week with small children, can you check your bags in case he was hidden away to take home or anything. So I’m on a find Elijah campaign now, any suggestions? I’m thinking of offering a reward, because I promise that he’s worth more to me than the person who now has him, but I doubt that will really work. Sadly it looks like he’s long gone.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
