Who knew daily blogging was so difficult?

…& why didn’t they tell me!

So, what’s new?

Well, again keeping manically busy. It’s like swimming against the current with little visible progress being made but hopefully invisible progress. Does that make sense? There seems so much to do behind the scenes to make things happen. As a comparatively new business we are still sorting out the odd little gremlin in our website. I must say people are so understanding of the odd little hiccup. We do seem to be getting there though. wherever there is.

Parcels are going out & we’re coping with new & different requests.

As its not possible to just stand still we’re also choosing our Christmas products to go in our parcels. Yep, Christmas whilst its still sunny outside.

I’ll save that for another day though.

Ain’t some people nice?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Busy few days! Well that’s my excuse.

Been sourcing some new things for our parcels. It’s quite enjoyable tasting your way through a selection of muffins to get the right one for our parcels.

We feel it is important to keep adding & changing our parcels to keep things fresh & different.

Reason for the heading?

Lovely lady ordered for her niece. Had a bit of nightmare on the website with a few miss pressed buttons. More worryingly she discovered a glitch on our website on one particular page which resulted in a small overcharge. we picked up on this straight away. A lot of customers would (understandably) be cross. This lady was very supportive & the whole matter was sorted out in minutes.

It’s lovely when customers stick with you even when there’s a little hiccup

Reason for the title? Well, it’s been a few days since I last posted. Surprisingly the internet has not asked why, questions have not been asked in parliament & the world has seemed to lurch on in its usual, slightly shambolic way.

Reason for the picture? Well, why not? Feeling a bit tiger-ish today. A sort of Grrrhhh, go get-em type day.

So, still to do?

Printing; oh that’s delayed so whilst I was hoping to see our 2m tall banner ready for Student Freshers Fayre I’ll have to wait another day. Same with the 10,000 flyers they were due to deliver.

Lovely delivery of loads of face paints yesterday. Just what a student needs for that Freshers week party. Could dress up like the picture above I suppose.

Our Facebook presence is beginning to grow.. We reached over 27,000 people last week. Not exactly sure what that means but it sounds a lot.

Pop over & like us & you’ll have a chance to win one of our parcels (unfortunately UK only I’m afraid)

Back to it. Apologies for not posting in the last few days. I’ll try to be better…if anyones reading this! 

Need some feedback

That’s the the thing with new businesses; you think you’ve got the great idea, it all seems feasible and then you get an attack of the collywobbles (a good old English term, I can’t remember the time I last typed that word!)

So, friends- or enemies- please provide any feedback you may have on the idea. In a nut shell we are about providing ‘stuff’ to students. This varies from themed treats to essentials. With a great range to choose from, the ability to add special things to your parcel, a personalised message & free postage we like to think it is a good offering.

So, let me have it with both barrels. Honestly! I’d rather pick up some faults now than later on.

I’m aware now this is turning into a bit of a sell for which I apologise as that is not the aim of this blog.

Onto a picture for today then:

Looks good enough to drink, might try one when today ends!
