At the moment the shop smells delicious; there are six Christmas trees in there (waiting to go outside when I open) and mince pies and gingerbread plus the smell of oranges and apples and fresh bread. In the window is a rocking horse waiting to be collected. It was made by an old man who makes hand carved walking sticks which I sell here. Another man brought in some nesting boxes and a little wooden wheelbarrow for me to sell. The wheelbarrow is for planting flowers in but somebody bought it last week for a child. I told her I was a bit doubtful and sure enough it’s back here again.
