So with today being Sunday, it’s been my day to put on my uniform, slap on the war paint & head off into the world of cosmetics retail! As you can imagine, this is a very busy time in the Beauty department, with everyone Christmas shopping. Today had the added bonus of an extended 10% Discount event…so people were really in spending mode & there were some amazing offers to be had!
From the moment I arrived on the shop floor it was mayhem, but so satisfying to achieve nearly double my retail target & it is so enjoyable when customers are in good spirits & there is a bit of ‘banter’!!
After work a few of us set off to ‘Ask’ to ‘send off’ one of the girls who will soon be starting maternity leave for baby number 5….she actually fell pregnant while on maternity leave for baby number 4, but I don’t think she’ll be doing that again!!
As I mentioned, it was the Crafty Stash monthly crop yesterday & I noticed on the lovely Valerie’s blog today, a photo she took of Karen & I in our silly Christmas headgear!! My Santa hat was perched so far back on my head that you can barely see it…but next to Karen’s sparkly ‘beedly-boppers’ you wouldn’t have noticed it anyway!!
Do be sure to pop over to these two ladies blogs (just click on their names) as there is some fabulous inspiration, much hilarity & some gorgeous photo’s (other than this one of Karen & I!!) to be seen.
And finally… JYC…today’s link was about good & bad Christmas memories. I chose two years that stick in my mind …1979 & 1985!
I won’t write out all the journaling but one involves skidding in my car on black ice & ending up in a ditch & the other a very happy memory of a Christmas with Lee when we made the decision to get married!
So…until tomorrow…Nite Nite!
