Well it’s a funny old life!
It actually looks like I have achieved very little over the last period of days, weeks, months or years but I have a sneaky feeling in my gut, a little sprig of hope, a little giggle of serenity that is telling me things are okay. Granted we have no money, and yes, I am pinching out the housekeeping, we are most definitely eating baked beans on more than the occasional once a week, this obviously resorts too much farting so I suggest no visits this week or actually to after the show!
We have a couple of new businesses is always wonderful and are waiting for more confirmation booking forms for about three other businesses.
We now have (fingers crossed) three p a systems, one with headphones set because Karen has mithered me to the point of distraction. Still means we need one, so I still have that to sort out.
Entertainment wise joining the Chapman brothers and our fabulous face painter , we are being joined by a large bouncy castle, a large blow up ball Pool for l kiddies and I am in talks with a company who can provide Bucking Bronco Rodeo class if I can raise funds for this (i.e. I persuade the pumpkin to pay for it) a fly wall, for those who don’t know what this is, you put on a vecro suit and throw yourself at a blow up wall! I know I may be fighting a certain few of the crew who will want at least a dozen goes on this ….me I will be climbing walls a totally different way!
I have ben desperately trying to get hold of a burger company with a difference, I have certainly tried them before and they are delicious…kangaroo, bison and crocodile burgers (admittedly I haven’t tried the crocodile burger but you got to try it all once) I also found a company that sourced their meat from sustainable sources and they are soooo much healthier than your typical burger.
I spent a fabulous weekend with Karen and the Amazing Deaf Dog Network, we didn’t make any money though we did sell a T Shirt, yep remember them lol, but waiting on the money for it. However most of the shows I am going to be going to will be more about advertising and promotion rather than money making, apart from anything else it was incredibly kind of Karen to let me tag along and put up with me for 2 days.
Oh and I nearly forget I also had one day at the Thame show with the wonderful Karen (god that woman must be NUTS) and the Joyful June from Labrador Retriever Rescue Southern England.
Funds wise….hahhahahahhahahahahahahahaha well you gotta laugh haven’t you!
I am in talks with a company who may be able to let me have a stall outside Sainsburys in my town plus when I get a mo I will be back in touch with Pets at Home…..the thing is, how can we make money on a stall? We have nothing to sell…..ok I admit it, I have personally bought some stuff on the cheap through e.bay to sell at a profit, but its not much, I REALLY don’t want to ask for donations and I certainly wont use pictures of animals in distress.
Oh I know that if we get what we want many animal lives will be saved, that many people wil have to take responsibility for the atrocious deeds they do and that prevention is better than cure BUT I simply don’t agree with what I call guilt money. We all have priorities even those people who arnt dog lovers, praps for them it is about their kids, or nephews and nieces, or even their holidays but you know what, they earn the money there is a huge difference between choosing to support something and being guilted into it.
Boring ramblings coming on!
I spent my whole life feeling guilty about something or other, we all have baggage, mine was my mother who controlled me by way of guilt…long story, many tears, blah blah but I do know I don’t EVER want to make anyone feel guilty. It’s a horrible emotion that can ruin you. Yep I know im over the top well tough poopies you go write something lol
And I love this lol thing….it somehow enables you make a horrible crushing remark that somehow can cut someone in two and yet lol makes it ok lol …….
Anyway back to the er where were we? I am great, doing fab, the two girls were finally convicted, 6 months suspended sentence, whilst they have to report to someone or other plus attend a rehabilitation course. Personally I think its great, if they fail to do it then they go to jail and I didn’t put them there so I don’t feel guilty…..ridiculous isn’t it.
So there you have it why I don’t ask for donations……..dont suppose anyone reads this anymore lol so my ramblings can make little or no sense!
Rambling finished for a bit
I would like to take a moment to say a huge THANKYOU to Emma Lou who, without her support wouldn’t be half as happy as I am now. She has worked very quietly behind the scenes and done LOADS of research and bits and bobs for me…wonderful lady!!
Believe it or not a couple of wonderful ladies have offered their time and help, so I am hopeful that they stay the course and I don’t scare them off…….er its happened before lol for some reason people find it hard to work with me…do you think maybe they are right?
Oh and the bank account, the Lovely Jan who is our treasurer has had a hard time trying to deal with the ank who have beed pushing her from pillar to post plus its been extra hard as she does work full time … so I stepped in and with my best hard nosed, authoritative speak quietly and carry a big stick voice have managed to get an individual…shock horror….yep some banks do actually have individuals, to take full responsibility for opening the account, er sadly he is on holiday from today till the 1st BUT he has personally promised that he will be sorting out asap or I will be removeing our business….said like I actually meant it…but it did the trick. So hopefully by, lets say the 14th of May we should have the account sorted and I can pay in some of these cheques!
So onwards and upwards! there is more but I dont want to bore you any more than I already have.....after all you are only human mwhahahahahaha
Queenie is rising from the ashes
