What an eventful day. We finally got into our new shop. Phew its seemed like a long time coming, but then again we hadn't even thought about moving until 8 weeks ago, so its been quite quick really. For those of you who don't know we are moving from our little shop in Hayle to a much larger shop in Polperro. We will be moving house later in the year to, and we will be closer to family and friends, not masses but enough to stay in Cornwall but to cut the journey into a manageable distance, for more frequent visits.
This morning didn't go quite to plan, we were surprised to still find snow on route and also had to drive though a flooded road. When we arrived at the agents, the solicitor hadn't agreed to release the keys. It took so long to sort out because the solicitors all went to lunch. Apparently they don't prioritize the smaller payments so we had to wait,.... Anyway at about 3pm we finally got into the shop...phew.
So what next........ we need to inject some colour or at least soften the effect of all the slat-board and metal shelves. Its a too bit harsh for my liking. Unfortunately as we are renting, then whatever we remove or change we have to be prepared to return to its original state, when we leave at the end of our lease. So anything too major will be hard as we cant store that amount of shelves etc. But I have some ideas and a little bit of a plan as formed in our heads this afternoon.
The units are very heavy and we did manage to move one, but its going to have to be in easy stages so I don't wreck Mr Wellydog already delicate back.
Anyway Its been a long day but we will be back tomorrow to see what else we can do.... watch this space .
