Unaware as I was of such a week even existing, until, as is usual with my daughter, the news of the event arrived to my ears, with very few hours left to prepare for what lay ahead..
It's got to be said " where are you all ? " Flower shops the length and breadth of the country are fit to burst with gorgeous Autumn Fayre (that's gorgeous flowers of the season in shop speak!!) flower wholesalers come and go and they are the first to admit it's mighty quiet out there, fellow shops talk amongst each other (and whilst most shy away from saying they are quiet..they will agree that you our customers are thin on the ground)..So
Whilst all was quiet and not a soul was stirring (well according to our media, thats the way the highstreet is, up and down our country..hear that tumbleweed !! ) in the rear of florists shops Santas little helpers are beavering away preparing themselves for your arrival.
