I think it’s best to pretend that the huge gap between my last post and this one, is simply due to “missing data.” Best not to mention a word about the time elapsed, and readers will simply assume, a chunk is missing.
No time to waste now. Things have been formidably busy here at Tea Trade, and as always we’re moving forward. No, strike that. Sometimes we think we’re moving forward, and then we find something isn’t working right, and we have to take a few steps back. I don’t like “back”, that direction seems so passé.
Last night we both stayed up late, working away. Pete does all the technical stuff and I was trying to look at things from an “outsider” perspective. That’s pretty hard to do because frankly, when you know your own site really well, there are things you don’t question any more. It’s like when you’re in your own house and you don’t notice that a table is a bit manky, because you see that table every day. Well, anyway – I was looking at the marketplace and comparing the look to other websites, and trying to work out what could work best for us. It’s definitely an ongoing project but that’s fine. I think we improved some things, but I know there is no such thing as an achieved “status quo” here.
Anyway, not enough sleep last night because we were both up early to take care of other daily activities. Now we’re both back to working on here. We just recently converted one of our rooms into a little office space, which is dedicated to all things Tea Trade, and the business degree Pete is working on. I’m trying to work out where I’m going to put all the stuff that was in that room before we made the changes, but so far haven’t come up with a master plan. In fact I might sneak some of the things that were packed up back in again. We’ll see. Either way, it’s nice to have a place for us to withdraw from some of the hustle and bustle and get things done.
In other thoughts, I am very keen on getting some pics from our Europe trip uploaded here. I have some very nice photos that I took especially for you all and I want to post them. Unfortunately there are a few mildly technical issues with that, which Pete will take care of. When he’s taken care of about 300 other things that need looking at. The man works extremely hard I tell you.
So, for now imagine some beautiful pics of a German castle, or some tea we sipped in Europe, and enjoy!
