Dating outside the box
Be prepared for lots more exhibition spam, we're a bit excited... As its just us it means orders won't be shipped after Fri until the following Thurs and then there is likely to be some backlog on personalised orders. If you need anything for next week please don't delay, order today - we'd hate to disappoint!! We also passed him a box of dates for Mrs P - shown in this pic which he shared to celebrate the diversity, creativity and scale of small businesses that he champions in the UK. Love this real life date from our New Parents Date Box. We're going to a meeting first but then going for afternoon tea at @peckfortoncastle on the way back - it's so needed!! So much to do, so many lists, so many cups of coffee! If you need anything for the week after (9th Sept), I know it's super organised, but maybe get that ordered too? 🎉 Then in June we found out we'd won a coveted stand at @springautumnfair through #SBS... #autumnfair #sbspavilion #sbswinners #giftideas #thoughtfulgiftideas #smallbusiness #bigopportunity #busyweekahead #championofsmallbusiness #dragonsden #familybusiness #uksmallbusiness #smallbusinessfamily🌈 Happy Pride Manchester 🌈 The sun is shining, its the bank holiday weekend - get out there and love, laugh, dance, date - wherever you are and whoever you are 😘 .

Today, we have help - the envelopes are stuffed (by hand!
A bit like packing for holidays we have no idea how much to take - so more is the way forward! We've actually had a few days off of lovely sunny, family fun, but John was in the office til late last night getting started on the personalised boxes. ) we were lucky enough to win #SBS - Theo Pathitis' Small Business Sunday competition on Twitter. In less than 3 weeks it's Autumn Fair, our first trade show and huge opportunity for us as part of @theopaphitis #SBS pavilion - there's been a lot of work to get ready!
And I've not even got to packing my stuff yet... As you know we're off to Autumn Fair on Saturday. 🎁 In February we attended the winners event, met Theo and had our picture taken with him. #manchesterpride #pride #onelove #onelovemanchester #lbgtpride #lbgtq #prideweekend #bankholidayweekend #datenight #dateday #celebratelove #dateenvelopes #rainbowenvelopes #keepdating #datemore #livelaughlovelife Anyone else trying not too get too excited a sunny bank holiday weekend and the thought is sunsets... #newparents #newparentsdating #maketimemakememories #newbaby #newbabygift #newmummy #newdaddy #datingwithbaby #datingwithkids #babyshowergiftideas #giftsfornewdads #giftsfornewparents #ayearofdates #watchthesunset #sunset #sunnyweekend Me and this one are sneaking off for a date this afternoon! Yesterday our planning meeting happened in the car as we drove to @notonthehighstreet for a catch up - it didn't look this serene trust me!
So we're all set up and ready for @springautumnfair tomorrow. 3 years ago I stuffed sets of date card envelopes as the orders came in.
We'll show the whole stand then but for now if you've tagged #ayearofdates in your pics see if you can spot yourself on our Insta wall 👀 Now to relax and unwind before we see what the next few days have in store... There were ribbons to tie and each box was built as I went along...
