I have just two & a half days left until I can re-open the door to let customers in; part of me cannot wait, part of me (being totally honest with you) is going to struggle with it, so go easy on me to begin with. Aside from a few weeks in December, I've worked behind a locked door for almost 6 months so going back to being a fully operational shop is not going to be easy - the fact I can no longer come to work in my PJ's is going to be the hardest thing of all 😂😂 It will be lovely to finally see faces again though.
Not sure, if we do ever have another lockdown, which I believe we possibly could, that I will adhere to the rules quite so tightly next time. On Monday I came across 2 florists who have still be trading exactly as they were before, their only difference being they weren't letting customers into the shop - these weren't shops in Fareham; I have no idea how the other Fareham shops are operating but assume they are sticking to the rules. I don't mind admitting to you all this really grated on me and made me quite angry, because we were classed as non-essential which meant we were only able to offer deliveries, and a click & collect service; we were not allowed to take orders, or serve customers on our premises and this included outside the shop itself; as you can see below - taking from Gov.uk we were only permitted to take orders remotely.

(same day possible on occasions - dependant on stock levels).
