Deliveries have gone out to Bridge of Allan, Glasgow and Killearn, Tomorrow will be Balfron and Croftamie and Monday, Helensburgh and Rhu. Then we will move onto the indoor decorations.
Some customers order an exact copy of last year's door ring, but most leave it up to me, with vague parameters such as "very fruity" or "soft and shaggy". I love this as it means that every door ring is different and I don't get bored.
Some of my favourites this year have hydrangeas in them - they go very well with the strings of cranberries and licheny wood.
Someone called me yesterday with the offer of a load of ready made holly wreaths - It would save me time they said - all I would have to do would be wire in ribbons and plastic flowers. I don't think that they got the point of what I do.
It is very soggy here - Drymen primary was closed yesterday and deliveries are having to be re-arranged to avoid flooded roads.
