Back to the blog.

I seem to have given up with the video blog, part of the reason is that i stopped being able to look at my face constantly whilst editing the video. I think from now on I will post what is happening to the business and possibly to me here, and occassionally add pieces of video as I go. So Things that have happened recently at my shop are:

Red Dwarf came to film at the shop, it made for a very different Friday. They changed the interior of the shop making it a Red Dwarf specialist retailer full of props and toys from the series. All the actors were charming and friendly, and I thought the crew were incredibly patient and polite. The Richmond and Twickenham times published a small article about it, which was another added piece of publicity.

Last weekend Guy and I set up a stand at the Richmond Japanese Art Festival, which was lovely. I spent the weekend watching traditional Japanese dances, drumming, marshal arts and the new phenominum of Cosplay. It was very enjoyable and quite profitable.

I can't believe I have got to blog 4.

Well I am very surprised that I have managed to keep up with this blog thing for 4 whole weeks, though this weeks is quite a bit shorter and I'm not sure it says anything, still I feel quite pleased that I have got this far. So here is the new blog.

Ok so here is my second video blog, this was filmed through out the 2nd week back at the shop after Christmas. I was considering not uploading this blog, as life running a small shop can be a bit repetitive and I didn't feel that I had much to say about anything this week. 

If you are wondering about what has happened about the sign above the shop, I did film a very non effective and pretty boring conversation with Richmond council which got nowhere. I didn't put it in the blog because it just didn't work as a one-sided conversation. So there is nothing much to report on the progress with the council. 

Anyway here is the link to the new update:
