If you are trying to ring the shop today......I'm sorry, we are not there. Snow stops play again I'm afraid. Karen, my trusty assistant lives only 20 minutes from the shop in the opposite direction to me and she does not have any snow in her area so after lengthy discussions about opening the shop, she said she would do it. She normally gets to the shop at about 9.15 am and didn't get there today until 10.20am!!! The traffic and the roads into Olney are really bad so I told her to go home again. So I am sorry we are not there to answer your calls but I am able to pick up your emails at home so please feel free to contact me this way.
This is the view from the front of my house and I have to say that the main roads are no better than this, it's like driving on sheet ice. It was -11 degrees C this morning when I tried to go out. It took Mark 30 minutes to chip his van out from under the ice, both inside and outside!!
So I'm drowning my sorrows in this hot chocolate with marshmallows .........yum, yum.
Not sure how long we will be closed but I promise to keep you posted.
