It all started off quite smoothly, us still here in France, and the girls at the shop getting along well, and coping with all the jobs. Then I got a call from my mum to say she had fallen and REALLY hurt herself. To abbreviate this to very short....she was rushed into Hospital, and for 12 hours, the forecast for her was not good...major surgery and all the works.
As we are in France, this sent us into total melt down as we had to pack up and get home at top speed. Which considering France was on a day of National Strike, with all airports closed and no trains running and few petrol stations open, getting home was not going to be easy!
Fast forward by 24 hours, and the hospital gave us the good news that Mum didnt need any surgery, and that she could go home! So panic over....and we have therefore stayed in France, for a bit longer.
So we have now unpacked and our stay down here continues. We spend every day working on shop work, so we dont class this as a 'holiday' as such...but more a change of scenery. Clive and I carry on with all our duties, just the same as we do in the UK...the only difference is that I am not serving on the shop floor.
One of my jobs whilst I am here is to enter my Spring 2011 collections, item by item onto the database in readiness for the goods to commence arriving from Mid December. This job alone works out to roughly 3 weeks of work, and although tedious is a necessary duty, and one that I am partway through.
Currently I am loading up the Spring Oska, and I have attached a few images of the lovely collection for you to see!
