a big Christmas order & business-y things

 today I officially gave notice to the landlord of my workshop to break my lease.  Leases are funny things - mine was/is a 5 year lease with a break clause at the end of year 3, but to use the break clause you have to give 6 months notice - if you give it one day late, or haven't paid your rent on time or any other thing you could do wrong then you can't end it at the break clause and you have to stay the full term .... but as you know we have run out of room and we have made the decision that we cannot stay here for another 2.5 years (as an aside, I can't really believe I have been in this workshop for 2 and a half years already!!) ... we started looking for bigger premises late last year, but as you know, the one we found didn't work out but we have been looking and visiting and having talks and *think* we have a new one in the pipeline.  I'm not showing you photos or telling you anything about it until I know for sure, and that can take weeks because it just does take weeks to do anything involving solicitors and estate agents....so I am in workshop Limbo - I have officially said goodbye to the current one and don't have a new one lined up - and that it is slightly terrifying!!!
but I'm not worrying about it - my only sleepless nights are caused by making sure I wake up early enough to do all my sewing!
