Before You Order!

Please be aware, that products that we have to order for you, are often taking longer to make than before Covid and Brexit!   'Normal' manufacturers lead times, seem to be a thing of the past😕 and shipping services, outside of the UK are still causing problems.

We will continue to work hard to keep things running smoothly, but please be patient if there is a delay in getting your order to you. 

Please also note that we will not be dispatching or processing orders after Thursday 20th May until Monday 7th of June, while the office is closed.                   However, you can still use the shop to send in your orders during that time.

WIDER STILL AND WIDER!

During a recent session of tidying my office and looking through old paperwork and files, I made the mistake of looking through some old diaries that Carol and I used to use before the days of iCal. Of course, this is a dangerous thing to do, because inevitably, we end up spending the time allocated to...
