THANK you....!!!!!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who attended the opening of the SVJ Shop & US Shipment Preview yesterday....I really cant explain to you how much your support & encouragement of my crazy ideas business endeavours means to me....!!!!!

My iPhone started chirping message alerts to me from 7am with best wishes from Ryn & Allen in the UK which made me feel quite SPECIAL & went a long way to soothing the heartburn I'd been experiencing for a good 24 hours prior....Who needs Mylanta when you have such WONDERFUL caring Friends....!!!!!

There were a few hiccups....My 'helper'/keeper of the $$float/photographer came down with a nasty tummy bug the night before leaving me on my own for the day, short of funds & having to take my own pics, then the main door was opened at 9.43am to allow early entry to visitors which as you know if you've ever been to an SVJ organised event is NOT ON....

This left me having to stop what I was doing to ask people to leave the area until 10am to make it fair for others planing their arrival for the designated start time & allow me to complete the tasks I was behind on due to being short handed....And of course....Because I was running around playing security, I didn't have time to upload my pics onto my laptop to check the quality which leaves me with only a handful of blurry pics to show you....And anyone who knows me ONE IOTA, KNOWS I'd rather not post if I don't have a decent pic....

**sigh**....I draw some comfort in the belief there's an alternate universe where the Sheldon's & Tamarah's of this world are completely in control of their environment leaving the day hiccup FREE & ensuring alternate Tamarah was able to post CRYSTAL CLEAR pics on her blog....hahahaha....

Unfortunately, when 5pm arrived & I shut up shop for the day, I left my ticket book behind so the prizes haven't been drawn as yet....I'll be back on deck at 10am today to open the shop, take some BETTER pics & draw the lucky winners....All going well, Ill pop back this evening with an update....AND CLEARER pics....!!!!!

Before I go I'd like to offer my CONGRATULATIONS to Daniel & his wife at the birth of their little one on Wednesday evening & to send out a HUGE THANK YOU to Shane for ensuring the coffee lounge was open for business as usual for our Customers to enjoy a coffee break....!!!!!

Cheers for now,
Tamarah :o)
