Day 20. Another Monday another rainy day, what is going on. Monday is usually a decent day but not today it's starting to get depressing, we desperately need a good day. Even Chelsea have failed to lift the gloom, although at least we did k eep a clean sheet. As trade is so quiet I am going to have to open the Sundays in December, so if any one is passing do drop in and keep me company, I was hoping not to have to open this year, but needs must. Lynne has started to knit a trendy kids animal hat, In this case a panda, what a star she is, but don't tell anyone I said so. Please don't rain tomorrow

Day 18. Another Friday, another knit and natter meeting,only 7 this time, much more manageable not so much catering. It's certainly been a funny old day, very few people about, I think people must be holding back at end of month getting rea dy for thier Xmas shopping. Jacks not in today, she is helping organise a lunch for 80 ladies and hope's to raise 2-3 thousand for our favourite childrens charity Extra Time. Let's hope all goes well. Just heard weather forcaste for Sat, Heavy rain and very windy all day, just not what want this time of the year.... If any one out there is thinking of visiting the shop, please don't let the weather put you of you will recieve a warm welcome.

Day 17. So Chelsea have a new temp manager,must admit it would not be my first choice, but hopefully just to the end of the season and then with a bit of luck Mr guardiola will take over. Jack walked through the park on the way to work, ni ce way to start the day. Can't work George street out, busy yesterday absolutely dead today where do all the people disappear to. Shop starting to look very christmasy, only 3 weeks before our daughter and grandchildren arrive from Australia can,t wait to see them. Great new yarn arrived Rico fashion country aran, colours look so good on the shelves and well priced for a such a quality product.

Day 16 Well well Well Chelsea have sacked Di Matteo what a start to the day. Made the wrong decision and walked to work and got soaked, never mind enjoyed thinking about future managers. Unfortuneatly driving rain and wind equals no trade, still it gave me chance to clear up lot's of jobs that needed doing. Bergere's new yarn Recycline arrived, what fantastic value 20% wool and only £1-50 a ball. Check out the colours on Coccons web site,amazing....

Day 13, don't know what has happened Friay's message appears to have got lost. So just to summerize 10 ladies for knit and natter, the classroom was full to bursting, spent most of the morning making teas and coffes and washing up. Must adm it such a good bunch, but boy can they natter. Was expecting a delivery of Sirdar Bonus which eventually arived just as we where closing causing toal chaos.Never mind it was a good day that is the most important thing and we can fill the shop up for Saturday

Day 12, feel a bit guilty, been next door to Costa for coffee twice today. Thursday is often the quietest day of the week and today is no exception, so I don't feel guilty about sneaking out . Had a delivery of haberdashery we are definatel y selling more than we used to do, but it is very time consuming keeping up with it all, so many small fiddlly items. It's 4-30pm dark outside, I am on my own for another hour and not a customer in sight. Such is the is the lot of a wool shop owner. Friday tomorow is knit and natter must get the room ready the ladies or they will give me a hard time again.

Day 11, Sorry missed tuesaday just don't know where the time went. Today is a lovely sunny day, started well as Jack walked some of the way with me to work. Some mornings like today Hove Park is so beatufil, good way to start the day. Have you noticed how fast the days go, one minute Lyn arrives at 10-30am the next I am covering her lunch then it's tea time and before you catch your breath it's 4 pm and it's time for her to go and I am back behind the counter untill 5-30 and that's another day gone.

Day 10 , what a touch Sunday was such a lovely day spent the day in the garden so much to do. Another Monday my how Quickly they come round must be a sign of my age. Not a good result for Chelsea and it's raining again, but on the bright si de Lynne our neighbour is working to day she cheers everyone up our little ray of sunshine. Bretts Marble Chunky came in to day, such a well priced and great yarn to knit with very popular with all the ladies. Let's hope the weather is better tomorow and this lousy coldn start's clearing up.

Day 8 Both Jack and I have got some nasty cold bug so both feeling pretty lousy but hey good news Chelsea had a realy important win, certainly helps lift the spirits. The shop seems to be stuck in a quiet spell which really puts the pressur e on, hope it ends soon. My local councillor delivered the leaflets for the xmas window competion, they look great have to get my act together, can't believe it's Friday tomorrow knit & natter again
