Goodness me, what a busy few days I’ve had! Saturday was spent doing last minute prep for Sunday’s wedding fair at The Worthing Dome; buying donuts, printing stuff, packing the car, fiddling about with pegboard signage etc!

Updates from Margot’s HQ

Hi guys! Sorry for radio silence on the blog this week. I had a lovely real wedding lined up for Tuesday but I’ve been having some problems uploading the images. It’s all being sorted now, thank goodness for my brilliant developers. I thought I’d write a general post about what’s what here at Margot’s HQ i.e. what’s been happening, what’s coming next and what’s in store as we look forward to 2020. This week we’re finalising issue 16 and it’s due out on Monday. We’ve been collating adverts and editorial over the last few months and Jo (marvellous Jo from…
