We’ve made it… I have been tardy at updating the site this week, mainly because I haven’t left the shop until 10pm most nights. So a quick recap…
Monday – The new Post Office Counter was delivered. Now I know many of you don’t recognise it as a Post Office Counter and think I should still be caged but I promise you it is actually much more secure and the glass partitions of the old counter were there purely to protect the customers from grumpy subpostmistresses.
Tuesday – A day of almost closure, for the Post Office to move their equipment! And the old fortress is taken down!
Wednesday – A (nearly) normal day when yours truely wrestles to get to grips with the new layout behind the counter and series of safes, alarms, timers and keys… I told you it was more secure.
Thursday – Final shopfitter’s visit! There is light at the end of the tunnel! Everything starts to take shape. David returns from the city to a completely different shop, spurred on by the changes he insists on moving stock around until late, late, late. What an exciting life we do lead.
Friday – We’re almost there, most people can see how it will look eventually. Just the floor to go down, a bit more tidying and organising and moving things about and we’re there.
Roll on the 3rd and final week!
