Day 329 - Monday 24th November

If you woke up this morning, it's time to celebrate!" - Joe Takash

What are you going to celebrate today?

I love the quote but unfortunately there isn’t much to celebrate today.
We have had our broadband swapped to a new provider today and it hasn’t gone very smoothly and we are still have no connection to one of our garden centres and no emails. So that is all still to be resolved tomorrow.
Also the government announced a reduction in the VAT rate from 17.5% to 15%. This isn’t much in terms of monetary value on most transactions but for retailers it is a complete nightmare. Customers will expect us to pass the saving on to them but the amount of work that this will involve is tremendous.
The only thing good to have happened today is getting my portrait photo from Anna. It is fabby - bearing in mind the subject!!!
