Time for a break ....

Post by Bagpuss » Fri 20 Mar, 2020 10:09 pm

Only a week or two before this all kicked off, I was feeling pretty run down and thought to myself, I could really do with shutting up for 3-4 months , clearing my backlog and recharging the batteries... Careful what you wish for ... :Slap:

I work alone from home so don't have the responsibilities and overheads of some of you, I'm also carer for my elderly Mother so she's in isolation like so many elderly relatives. I've been keeping an eye on the Forum recently and have been surprised how little the virus has been mentioned. Things have been moving very quickly that's for sure, so this week I was still getting enquiries for Framing jobs, I had to turn them down and now I'm shutting up shop for new work and will concentrate on clearing my outstanding jobs. Tomorrow I have some collections but will make sure they don't interact with other customers collecting.

I wish you all well in the difficult times ahead and do look after yourselves :clap:

Wise choice Adam, especially if you are a carer, your number 1 priority is your family

See you on the other side of this,

Keep well

That makes a lot of sense. I hope you will be able to resume framing at a more appropriate time. Very best wishes for times ahead.

Hi Adam, hope you get sorted OK. Feel free to get in touch if you need to vent or need a chat, it'd be good to catch up.
