Catching Up on a Sunday

How's your week, lovely people? All is well? Surely!

My weekend has just started. This is my day off. I am proud to say that I work hard the whole week. And so sorry, I know I was missing in action and now I'm trying to catch up with you guys. I wish you all had a great week as I want to share mine.

Work is Good

This is my 2nd week at work at the Carpet Shop and I love it! I had enough time complaining about the weight of the bigger rugs that my body getting used to it now. No, no muscles yet lol. Soon.

This is the beautiful view of the Scrabo that greeted me every morning when I go to work. It's lovely, especially on a nice sunny day.

Then my bosses, I only have the two owners working with, they give me my key and let me open the shop. As soon as I get in to put the card machine to turn it on they always leave me a note saying "Good Morning". And I laugh as this time they wrote it in my language and made an effort to Google it. What a sweet gesture that puts a smile on my face and conditions my spirit for work.

The first thing I do is what we sold the day before, they will get it in the warehouse and I will get it sorted for display so we don't have a space. So this is some of what I did yesterday morning. I started with smaller ones first. I unwrap it and roll it twice the other way showing the rugs and the patterns ready to be displayed in the shop.

Then after that, I hoover the whole place with Henry. He is my buddy in the morning.

But I stop doing what I'm doing if there's a customer. Some of the things I learned this week:

  • I don't have to run after customers. They don't like it as I don't like going to shop with someone following me either. They will call me if they need me.

  • I need loads of patience. Yesterday, I had an old woman who wants me to show the kitchen runners( 66 × 230) to her and is like I have 10 or more open up for her and lying everywhere. When it ended up to 1 I said to myself, thank goodness! When all of a sudden, she said, "I think this is the wrong size! I will measure it first." Hahaha. So I roll back everything again without a sale made.

  • People who want to buy a rug will buy a rug, you don't need to do sales talk.

  • There are many good customers and awkward ones. Just keep your cool. You cannot curse. Keep it to yourself.

I told you the last time that I got paid £9 per hour and only work for 4 hours and in that 4 hours if I made a sale of £500 or more I get an extra £10 which I consistently get! So happy days! It's just that my 2-3 days becomes more. They want me to work more days.

The thing is after work I went straight to the kitchen to cook. After cooking and cleaning, we do homework and review with my son for the exam next month. By the time I finish all I'm knackered and just gone straight to sleep. That's why I wasn't able to catch up here at read. I hope you understand. Christmas is coming and I want to save as much as I can.

Carving Pumpkin

We carved pumpkin this week as they have to bring it to school. They are the one who cleans up the inside of the pumpkin. Tia keeps complaining about the seeds as it's too many. My hands were sore carving them as I can't let them use the sharp knife but Tia wants to do it so I have to guide her hand while doing so.

Then we brought it to school the next morning and saw all the kids creative pumpkins! They are all well done!

Attending Funeral

Remember, Colin's sister? he was buried last week as well and we attended her service. It's just an unexpected twist. Going to check your sister to see if she can visit your mother who got dementia and getting worst and ending up seeing your sister dead in her home is terrible. That's heartbreaking. Their Mum still didn't know that her daughter who she always asked to see is now dead.

My Aunt Passed Away

4 months ago I posted an article pleading for help for my Tita Rose. Thank you for your help and support when I needed you's all. Her three years battle is over. She's a fighter. She won her Breast Cancer battle. But Liver Cancer started up. Then her brain and last, her lungs. She fought a very good fight.

She is now laid to rest.

Thank you so much for reading.
