Hi All,
Hope you have all enjoyed your pumpkin bashing and fireworks! I love this time of year, getting on the woollens scarves and mittens, hands round a nice hot mug of soup, especially the soup from Copra Cafe in Hebden its delicious and they deliver!
We have just had the Hebden Bridge bonfire and firework display. I'm sure it gets busier every year its amazing how many people come from all around to join in the fun.

The shop is hectic as you would expect at this time of year. We are getting ready for Christmas and have just been discussing how to dress the window. Last years was a great success and we had a lovely lady in yesterday who said she had just popped in to say she couldn't wait to see this years display! We do have some lovely customers.

This makes me think of one of our favourite customers of all time Poppy. She comes in with her owner Wendy most days and loves to have a wander round the shop whilst we chat with Wendy.
She is adorable as you can see. We have a little bowl of water on the sill outside of the shop with a note attached saying "free doggy refreshment". Poppy loves to have a little drink before she comes in, but today she was disappointed as were we to discover that our doggy bowl has gone!
Its probably due to some youthful frivolity no doubt but it did leave us in a bit of a predicament to find another bowl quickly for Poppy's drink.
We managed to sort something out though so all was well in the end. Poppy decided she would like to share a few photos with you so you can all ooh and aah after her as we do, so I hope you enjoy them!

Will be posting again soon with some pictures of the Christmas window.
Love to all
