It’s harder than you think, working without the internet. We knew we wouldn’t be working on eBay, taking card payments or using the phone. We hadn’t realised just how many times a day we needed it to look things up, research prices or simply to settle arguments.
Instead of sitting in front of a screen enjoying myself I had to sort pennies, looking for 1895s to make up the sets. They had the lowest mintage of the Old Head pennies by a long way and are always a pain to find.
I also cleared my desk, sorted my stationery supplies and ranked my pencils in order of length. In other words, apart from seven parcels in the morning, and a few customers, we were rather underworked.
Fortunately the engineers are coming out on Monday to fix it. Fingers crossed!
Now I’m going to relax and slide gently into Christmas…
Sliding gently is a great description! We are almost there!
A well sorted pencil tidy is a pearl above price.
It is something I have learnt to appreciate as maturity has crept up on me.
What would we do without it?
Well, we’d use more stamps if we had to mail every blog post. 🙂
Are three wise men dropping round to sort the internet!
That would be so good! I expect it will be one or two unwise men with power tools…
Well, I trust your gentle slide into Christmas will set you up for a pleasant New Year.
I hadn’t thought that far ahead, I just want to get through to Friday so I can get back into the shop. However, now you mention it, it seems a distinct possibility. Thank you for that, I feel more relaxed now. I hope yours will be relaxing too.
