The office is festooned with the results of business guru, and good neighbour, Bridget of Nua Training and Development. When Brown Envelope Seeds was germinating in my mind I went to one of Bridget and Sheilanne's courses and learnt all about starting a business. They probably told us how to keep it running but I forgot all that and now that gardening is the new golf around here, I am a victim of my own success and have no idea how to organise a slightly larger enterprise. I have never worked in an office and the so-called room always has a burgled look about it. I can usually find things in it but it isn't easy for Ruth who is here some of the time. Mike is also keen to become more involved and so last Monday we spent the morning coming up with ideas about how to make it all run smoothly and to approach the thorny issue of PC versus Mac. The upside for me is that it looks like I might spend less time working on the address list and stuffing envelopes and more outside growing things. If only we could organise the weather as easily.
