The C-word.............



I've said it.

No doubt sending shock waves reverberating around the blogosphere.

But I don't see why I should be up to my eyes in preparations for two pre-Christmas fairs while the rest of the country is still basking in what passes for the great British summer.

It just doesn't feel right to be thinking about, and working towards Christmas in mid-August, but that's the way it is. No matter how much time I THINK I have, I know that in the blink of an eye we'll be hurtling thought October and there will be just weeks till our next fair in November. Plus for some reason best known to myself, I thought it would be a good idea to do TWO fairs in November this year, so we have to have twice the amount of stock with the requisite number of new and exciting miniature toys to unveil.

Well that's the theory anyway.

The reality, as I am only too well aware, will probably fall way short of the mark.

However, undaunted, we have just put the finishing touches to a new range of wicker toy kits, the first few of which are now live on the website, as well as finally re-stocking on some new exotic vintage pullalong toys, which I've really enjoyed creating over the past few weeks, along with a few new little toy dolls.

All I have to do now is keep up the momentum and completely eschew all displacement activity.

There is absolutely no need to use language like that. We can all say the word but at this time of year very few of us do given the stress and upset that it causes even thinking about it. Here is me all excited because we only have 62 days to go and you spoil it all by reminding me that a mere 38 days after that it is the C-word.

I was having quite a good day 'til I read that.

Sorry Joyce!

You're quite right, I shouldn't deflect my own problems onto the general populace ;-)

However, in my defence, I have already received TWO C-word catalogues through the post. I'm fully expecting Tesco to have selection boxes and C-word cards instore any day now.

No matter how you feel about the C word, it sure motivated you into creating beautiful work. The toys are lovely!
