Mid March 2017
A month of unsettled weather – we did so wish it would be an early spring!
After a few weeks of technical meltdown – my personal laptop and my business point of sale machine – I am hoping to get through the next two weeks without more time wasting and frustrating days at the mercy of machinery malfunction. New hard drive and new point of sale now working well.
It is the annual pre-inventory lull – but a few new books worth mentioning have arrived in the past few days.
