Mini Auction!

Today's post is a good news/bad news thing. And we have twice as much good news as we do bad news.

The first (and I happen to thing the best) good news is that we are holding a small, special auction to mark Benedict's first birthday, on Wednesday 10th April. We can't quite believe that it's been a year, but it has, and we think this is the best possible may to mark the occasion.

Unfortunately - and here's the bad news - we have had a small technological problem, and haven't been able to use our laptop, where we had a lot of the details of the lots. But (good news time again) the problem has been temporarily fixed, so we can go ahead, albeit with a slight delay. Seeing as today is the 9th, we're going to have to work pretty hard to get everything ready for tomorrow. We should be able to do it, but I really can't say how long it will take, or therefore what time we'll be able to kick off. I hope that it will still start at some point tomorrow, but it's certainly not going to be 10 am.

So, we need to ask for your patience. But we know that you're all lovely, generous and supportive folks, so we're confident that you can wait just a few hours. Believe us, the items are worth waiting for! We'll keep you updated on here, and also on our Facebook page.

Thank you.
