Welcome to the
John and I were discussing last week whether to send last Friday’s issue out on Thursday instead (because of the Good Friday holiday), or whether giving you something extra to read on Thursday would just add to the pressure of having to fit two weeks’ worth of work into eight days instead of 10. We decided to ease the burden on us all and I have to say I was grateful to have a Friday off!
I know sales have suffered for everyone in recent years and that several well established and seemingly successful companies have gone to the wall, but recent good news on the economy and employment fronts mean that most of us are a bit more confident than we were this time last year.
Add to this the great news about what we’re now able to do with our pension pots, throw into the mixture the warmth and sunshine we’re shortly going to be enjoying again and - well - there’s starting to be a real ‘feelgood factor’ in the air, isn’t there?
We hope you enjoyed your Easter break if you managed to have one and that if you were out and about, you were also able to find some sunshine. But even more so, we’re hoping that as someone who’s in the trade, you enjoyed lots of traditional Easter interest in your products and services and that your order books are on the way to being full.
