A bit of a gush!

Not only did we launch Unique Boutique this week but we are launching / planning 4 other businesses! and if that wasn't enough we are moving and getting a puppy and 2 donkeys! The house is in total disarray! We have 3 wonderful children, 3 very naughty miniature ponies, 4 alpacas that have been sent away for halter training (that itself I could do a blog about!! trying to get them in a trailer very funny!) 1 very moody donkey, 2 cats that are on a mega killing spree and a cheeky miniature goat called Poe. Moving is not an easy task! I keep looking around, saying to myself "oh there's not much to do really" but really I am just trying to convince myself - its not working!

At least the weather has been good, so I can bundle the children up and send them into the garden to burn off some energy!

Anyway over to the gushy part...............

I have to say a huge thank you for everyone involved in From the moment the idea came to me until now the people I have come across have been so embracing of the idea, the suppliers I work with are just incredible and many I see as my vitural friends! Their support on facebook, email and other secret places we hang out, has been amazing! The advice given has been purely for my own benefit not just for the suppliers - see there are some just nice peolpe out there!

The web designers have also been wonderful, working very hard at making it all work, and with a brief of 'here's my logo - I don't want anything too cutesie I think what they have achieved is great so thank you

And lastly, wow its starting to feel like an oscar speech, but without the tears and the alcohol!, a big thank you to my husband, Ben, who without his support it would never of happened and was my very own human punching bag! x

See you all next time!


  1. An award speech worth making!
    It's a beautiful store and I'm sending alot of people your way, I got a few emails this morning that they are hiding the credit card from the husband as I have directed them to you and they are in love...with everything.
    It's an absolute delight to be part of your store...clink (glass - at this time of day, non alcoholic, boo!) to success.

  2. How do you do it?!!
    That is quite a menagerie... I imagine finding a suitable place for all the animals to run about in is a significant challenge in itself, let alone the challenges of kids, businesses and boutique-launching!
    Definitely speech-worthy. You need a medal :-)
