Seasons Greetings to all.
Just a quick note to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and jolly New Year.
No list this week as we are hoping to have a quiet few days over the next couple of weeks while we have a catch up and try to get ready for 2015. However you may have already noticed the our extra email Christmas message which is something I put together this week. It is actually the image and text from our card we sent out earlier this week to a few special people who have looked after us in 2014, usually by sending us some dosh after we sent them some lovely hairy stuff. It’s a system that just about keeps us afloat! If you feel ‘special’ but didn’t get a card, please accept my apologies, resources are limited, you can always print it off and experience that warming glow yourself. Bonkersly busy last week getting stuff lined up for the coming season. More colour label preparations, new printing plates for the herb wooden labels ordered, header board blanks ordered, and a new tray liner being sorted out, of which more news in the New Year. More driver training being organised (a free one to one, eco-driving session for each of the van drivers), tree decorated and photographed, Christmas cards designed and made, 2015 catalogue started and new sets of back-up memory sticks put into use (back-up, back-up, back-up). We lost a bit of time on Thursday with the staff Christmas lunch at ‘The Plough’ in Sparsholt which was fantastic, definitely a level above ‘pub grub’. I can certainly recommend them as a good meal out for anyone close to us.
I hope you all have a lovely break and a relaxing time (don’t forget one man’s stress is another’s excitement). We will be in touch again in the New Year, as soon as I can think of something to say.
PS We are here until the 24th if anyone desperately needs to contact us, we will pop in and check emails etc on and off over the break when we are doing our other daily checks. Back to full capacity on Monday 5th.
Have a good one, from all at Kirton Farm Nurseries
