My 30 day happy photo from the shop challenge needs a better name! So please give me some suggestions!
I have started to upload images to a photo printing company online, I haven’t printed a photo since Stina was a toddler! Which is terrible so I guess this is a great thing to do, got a few years of catching up! Before Christmas I went to see Meik Wiking promoting his new book, the Art of making Memories. He reminded me about the feeling looking though old photo albums. And yes I remember that feeling going to my grandmother looking through her albums. And I see how excited my own girls are looking through albums at their grandparents when we visit them.
So this morning I found this photo, and wow this was from a VERY happy time! Pretty much on the date, four years ago, the opening of Lilla, our beautiful beautiful children shop! That Lilla nearly bankrupted us and that the opening was weeks before the horrible, awful, evil brexit that floored me, and that I am still fighting that depression it caused me four years later is another story. Because right at this very moment I took this photo of my girls I was extremely happy!
Here we are so excited, all of us, I was hiring fantastic staff that are still with us (some not but we are still in touch), the shop ladies (Ruth and Zuzanna) at the time were so excited and worked so hard! We were painting, building shelves and here I was unpacking a HUGE delivery full with fun and stylish Scandi toys and designs for a lovely nursery. My two daughters who are both a huge part of Spektakulär was “helping” me unpacking and checking stock was playing with the boxes. Stina couldn’t get out, she got stuck so Richard had to lift her out by her feet, oh the giggles and silliness! It truly was a precious moment and this photo is a great reminder of a happy memory!
Today we are having a chill day, both girls were up last night, three of us had nightmares, we definitely think the Bogeyman came for a visit. So not a lot of sleep. So we will be reading, craft, colouring, playing with our toys and I think Monopoly is on the agenda plus a nap! At the moment we are catching up on old school work which we all gave up on at the time but today it makes sense.
Have a great day and please do send me requests on what you like me to post and also I need a better name!
