An update

I've had a good couple of days, very busy, but I've had time to stop today and yesterday too, which was much needed as I'm in for a busy weekend too.

I took Billy-Joe for his x-ray this morning and then I headed out to the Plaza to buy birthday gifts for him and Julia. I got Billy-Joe the Wii Monster Tri game, which he's been wanting for ages, and I know Mickey will enjoy it too. I bought Julia a gorgeous pair of silver ear rings with a purple hearts made of a stone inside them, they're just gorgeous and purple is her favourite colour. I didn't want to buy her jewellery seeing as she works in a jewellery store and her Dad sells the stuff, but I know she'll treasure it, and let's face it, a girl can never have too much jewellery!!! I bought myself jammies from Myer that were on special. I can't stand the BigW pjs anymore, and the Myer ones are always understated and just really nice. They were 40% off which was great, as they're a bit dearer than what I like to spend.

We went to the accountant on Wednesday, we'll both get good refunds and I"m sweating on my Centrelink refund, because I seriously underestimated our earnings. My CCs are both sick, so they'll get paid out again and my rego will be paid for 12 months. I'm hoping I'm left with enough to buy my Thermomix. I'll be able to claim the iPad on my tax, but I'm still on the fence with that one. We want to get Billy-Joe a new bed and chest of drawers, so we might go and have a look on Sunday.

Tonight I'm going scrapping and I'm looking forward to it. It's my night to debrief with Barbi, she's like a balm for my soul. Tonight there'll only be her and I at the table, so we can hash out a few things about the store, which will be good. I'm feeling guilty because the site isn't going as well as we'd like, but we're going to meet up with a business mentor to see what direction we'll take with it, plus it's what I'm using while I'm doing my e-commerce course. Barbi is happy for me to use Daisy's as a sample. I've done a few things to make the site better already as far as Google is concerned. There's traffic on it every single day which is fantastic, we just want to increase that though. The Facebook fan page is growing too, slowly but surely, there's over 90 people on it now which is fabulous.

Not much else to report, I've got a few thoughts running around in my Labyrinth of a mind, but I've run out of time.....until next time.

Hi Jenny, that's good that you'll be getting a decent refund. We got ours back yesterday and I was able to get my much needed laptop and I got Ian his iPad which he is absolutely loving. I don't think he's put it down LOL. I understand it takes time to get a website up and running but you shouldn't feel guilty. You've done an amazing job. I think it's just the economic climate at the moment. I know I don't buy online at the moment. Also, could you put the camp deposit and payment option on the website? It would make it easier for those of us travelling. We might even be able to pay in full and make payments to pay it off in advance. Anyway, just a thought for you. See you in 3 weeks and 6 days!!!
