I know you don’t want to hear this but I’m going to tell you anyway. I’ll say it quickly. It’s only199daysuntilChristmas. So for me this means keeping one eye on day-to-day orders and the other on, yes, Christmas stock; and its fair to say that already I’m ‘robined out’. Stitching robins and holly berries whilst the sun is baking hot outside, well, it’s just not right. Yesterday I jumped ship and took a half hour breather through my garden, up the banking and to the railway embankment. Here’s a quick tour for you.
