Christmas Is Coming...

December 19, 2007 - 12:13am

Brrrrr, hope this cold bright weather lasts over Christmas because it’s going be great for some hill walking to stretch ourselves back into shape at this darkest time of the year. There have been a lot of late nights and early mornings in the Dojo workshop these past few months and we’re ready for a break. The wood burner has been blazing and Jon’s been out the back chopping so much wood he hasn’t needed to stand by it to get warm. There always seem to be mince pies warming on the top at the moment, we made a bit of a mistake in our ordering and ended up with rather more than we expected, but they’ve turned out to be just the thing to sustain whilst making all those Christmas deadlines. Our order book is closed for this year now, and already filling up for the beginning of the next...

We are closing at 5.00 on Saturday 22nd December and don't reopen the shop until 10.00 Thursday 10th January (although we are actually back in the workshop at the beginning of that week) We've found that very few people want to buy big things like beds and mattresses over that time so we’re taking advantage of the quiet time to take a bit of break!

It’s been a fantastic year at Dojo - even though we’ve been around for 17 years now each year brings so many new experiences and challenges. Thanks to everyone who has supported us in so many ways.

So here’s wishing everyone a time of rest, reflection and merriment in whichever order you choose!
