Winter really has set in now... with a little teaser flurry of snow today. Yet I am feeling quite warm in this lovely space.. Not just because the heating is on either..! The most heartwarming support from the community, from customers old and new, from co-workers, friends and family. It has brought me great comfort after the horrible news of the last blog post. I am blessed.
Sunday opening hours start on the 10th December.. and I am looking forward to handing you a glass of mulled wine and a sweet treat! Come on over! I am holding a fabulous raffle.. Details on the News page.
So with 3.5 weeks to go... I'm wondering what you are all doing in your downtime this Christmas?
We do have an event over the last weekend of December at Zenubian. If you need a change from the usual offerings on TV and need to get your energy moving again.. Keep an eye out on the News page!
I hope you all experience many blessings and joy, and feel at peace with the end of this cycle.
I have learned a lot, grown a lot.. ( not just in girth ! ) and I see a bright road ahead.. I look forward to sharing it all with you !
Much love x

So who knew..
Zenubian has been at 136 Hither Green Lane for four and a half months now..
During that time we've made great strides! Blessed to have the company of many great creatives and practitioners in our new space, and a warm welcome from the HG community was gratefully received.
Things do take a while to settle, and after all the developments and changes, I have been in preparation for the Christmas season. Life has a habit of throwing curve balls and lessons and I've had a few since the re-opening.. The worst feeling in the world is feeling like you may have made a mistake.
What made me feel this way? Another break-in !
After the last one in February at the Ladywell premises, this one has made me feel quite unsafe. Two within a year can make a dent in your sense of safety. I now have to get practical and find a solution. The only real one is getting shutters for the shop, but for these massive windows, they are very expensive. Prior to opening at Hither Green, I had to choose between stock and shutters. Such are the difficulties of a sole trader..I chose stock. Hoping to have the opportunity to build up. No such luck!
So here it is.. a somewhat embarrassed request for help...
I know things are tough for everyone right now..but if you feel to and are able to, I would deeply appreciate any donation possible to get me on the road to security.
I am planning a couple of events to help this mission for shutters, so watch this space!
