Love your Mum …

I gently reminded my kids that it was Mother’s Day this coming Sunday.

My son said  ‘We’re letting you come with us on the Burnley v Man City match

on Saturday Mum …

that’s your treat …..’  I’m actually REALLY excited about this.

That and a home made card will do me.

Then we came across this lovely poem by Collette Saw.

I hope she doesn’t mind me using it in our blog ……

“My Mum is an Alien”

by Collette Saw …

I THINK MY MUM IS AN ALIEN,
NO REALLY , HONESTLY, IT’S TRUE,
SHE SAYS SHE HAS EYES IN THE BACK OF HER HEAD,
WELL THAT’S A FLIPPIN’ BIG CLUE.

SHE MAY BE TELE PATHETIC AS WELL,
‘COS SHE ALWAYS KNOWS WHEN WE LIE,
AND SOMETIMES WHEN SHE’S IN A TERRIBLE RUSH,
SHE SAYS THAT ‘ SHE’LL JUST HAVE TO FLY’.

I THINK SHE PROBABLY HAS SUPER POWERS
WITH X-RAY VISION TOO,
SHE SAYS SHE DOES THE WORK OF TEN MEN EACH DAY,
AND TELLS DAD, ‘ I CAN SEE RIGHT THRU’ YOU’ .

I THINK HER WEAKNESS IS DIRT AND GERMS,
SHE’S ALWAYS CLEANING UP AFTER US,
AND SHE MAKES US WEAR CLEAN UNDIES EVERYDAY,
‘JUST IN CASE’ WE MIGHT GET.. ‘ HIT BY A BUS’

AND WHEN SHE TUCKS US UP IN BED AT NIGHT,
SHE USES HER POWERS OF HYPNOSIS,
TO MAKE US FEEL LIKE TIRED LITTLE SLEEPYHEADS,
I THINK MY MUM IS THE MOSTEST.

 

However … if your Mum isn’t an alien or a football fan then here are a few different present ideas for you to ponder over …..

 

 

 

Spring has sprung …..

March has arrived but it’s actually snowing as I write about Spring. There are sneaky signs of it however and snowdrops always herald Spring for me of course closely followed by the daffodil and crocus. Lambs are born, people start to make summer holiday plans, the clocks spring forward at the end of the March and of course it’s the month for celebrating Mother’s Day.

Folk talk of spring cleaning and here at A White Room we’ve had a bit of a re vamp and jiggle about ourselves! Shortly after celebrating our 10th birthday we opened our new warehouse facility at Calder Mill in Colne. The warehouse is located only 5 minutes drive away but goodness aren’t the streets down to Waterside steep! (Much fun to be had in the snow ….) Calder Mill itself however is ideally placed for accepting our ever increasing deliveries and Lindsay has got things running like clockwork down there. Situated just over a cobbled, hump backed bridge, by the river with THE most amazing view of Pendle Hill it’s actually pretty idylic …. just ignore the fork lift trucks and low loading lorries.

The showroom remains on Albert Road in Colne and now it’s no longer needed for storage it’s slowly being turned back to its former glory as an amazing space to display room sets for the larger furniture pieces we sell as well as the accessories and lighting. There are also plans afoot for A Green Room within A White Room …. hey watch this space.

Staff wise well our lovely Ruth has gone on maternity leave and Baby P is imminent. We are missing her but cannot wait for her to visit once baby has arrived. As I mentioned Lindsay is very much in charge down at the warehouse and is co ordinating the incomings and out goings and day to day administration. That leaves David, myself and our new lady Emma covering the showroom and taking up the slack. David continues to be heavily involved in the upkeep and caretaking of the website and he’s your man to go to for anything requiring room planning, measuring or fitting. The warehouse is open weekdays from 9.30am and the showroom is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am – 5pm  Out of hours and weekend opening is also available by appointment.

Kartell

The Kartell Audrey painted frame chair is not just a simple chair. Audrey belongs to an eclectic, multifunctional family that can go everywhere; indoor, outdoor, office, home, and contract. All sharing the same DNA but with slight differences enabling them to adapt to various uses. Audrey is a versatile contemporary chair with clean and simple lines thanks to the lightness and resistance of its wholly die-cast aluminium frame. This is the first time a single piece, with or without armrests has been cast in this way.

The Kartell Audrey chair is available in a whole host of painted aluminium frames in black, white or grey and the seat and back is available in white, black, light grey, sand, orange, yellow, blue.
