John Lewis Update

August's freebie can be found by clicking here




*************************************************

My first delivery to John Lewis has finally arrived at their distribution centre...after I posted this post all the delivery details I had arranged went completely wrong! My complete panic and slight hysteria were calmed by John...who proceeded to save the day and book a new delivery company...I then re-arranged the delivery date with John Lewis for the 4th August.


It seems that delivery companies don't like new business much, because the new company didn't pick up on Monday as arranged, but did finally come on Tuesday...thankfully the pallets arrived on time and are now somewhere in the John Lewis system.

phew!


And all of that means it's about time I shared my new kits!

these pictures are the front of the boxes...

...there are 4 different kits in this delivery...

...with 2 Christmas kits to come next month...

...next week I shall be blogging about them in more detail (and might just bore you with a lot of kit talk!) but if you can't wait till then you can see more photos in the shop
