There is a saying that it never rains, but it pours!

I am massaging my head and mumbling to myself as I have done for the past 7 days. The week (well, last week), started off with those flaky white bits falling out of the sky - I believe it is called snow!!!! I had never seen so much snow in Reading since I moved here all those years ago. This meant spending a week indoors with the artic monkeys (my kids). It should have been a fun time but with no outdoor play, no trips to Sonning to process orders and a technical glitch on the site, it was one miserable week.
To say the least, it was the same week that I received more goodies from Ghana - aarrgghhhh. I am sat here wondering when those geeks will work their magic wand on my site. :((.

I was able to start shipping again today.

Well, I have consoled myself all week with making more beaded jewellery till the site is up & running and here are the chosen few:
