I have been holding off on this in the face of vague and confusing information. Right now, the government guidance states “Online retail is still open and encouraged and postal and delivery service will run as normal”. I strongly suspect this is aimed at large retailers that have their own delivery arrangements rather than sole traders who take their parcels to the post office, but no clarification has been forthcoming. As such, and given that it’s likely to be a while before the self-employed can get any support, I’m not expecting to shut down unless the local post offices close or clearer advice is issued. I am of course taking precautions and will reduce post office visits as much as possible.
Is now a good time to mention my side-line in jigsaws and board games…? 😉
In other news, while I’ve managed to post on my website a couple of times this year, I haven’t quite found the energy to address my social media. This update should hopefully feed through, so hello Facebook and Twitter if so, yes I am Still Alive!
