i rode to work today listening to the Tim Ferriss Do Lecture lecture. which basically went, you can achieve the impossible.

then i got to work to find that some of what we needed to do today could not be done.

people were just saying no.

so we pushed and pulled and picked and called and hounded and pleaded and begged and bribed and said please and turned a lot back into yes'.

tomorrow we convert more no's.

We have another busy week this week.

We have to open the Bristol shop. All we have left to do is fit the till, get the new front window glass fitted, take down the scaffolding, repair the entrance, paint the shop front and hang the sign, get the electricity connected, seal the wooden floor, fit the mirrors, pick 2000 items of howies clothing in the warehouse, price it, deliver it and display it, do all the branding in store, get the counter delivered and fitted, put up the banister on the stairs, hoover dust and mop, buy a telephone, fit the stereo system, dress the art gallery, get illustrators to draw on the walls, get a door mat and get the staff in. The only thing that could scuper our plans is the waterboard may not connect the water so the contractors won't let the public on site.

We have the sample sale to pick all the stock, pack the vans, go to London, set up and sell.

We have a late night shopping night in Carnaby street with 10,000 shoppers signed up to attend.

We have had new stock delivered that needs checking off and booking on.

And we have all the orders to pack from last Thursdays e-mail. Didn't think it would be so busy!

So customer service are working late again.

Creative are preparing to spend days and nights in Bristol creating.

The warehouse are starting early and finishing late picking, packing, picking, packing repeat to fade.

Everyone is working to nail it all.

Tomorrow when I have found the job number for the waterboard, I may ask the blog for help to pull some strings at Wessex Water.

Thank you David, Clare, Chris, Geoff R, Tom M, Katherine, Kaitlyn, Greg S, Janko, King Crimmons, Michelle H, Stephen, Russell, Nick H, David B, Jen, Anthony, Martin, Jeff S and every single person in howies.

And to my wife and kids who have had to put up with a grumpy stressed old man. I will be like that until it's open I'm sorry.

It was SO hard but we did it.

All of us.

Now all we need is staff, IT, fixtures and fittings, stock, lights, a till, shelves.....
