We're buying desks

Hi everyone

I've been a bit remiss with the blog side of things recently. Apologies for this, but it has been a bit of a whirlwind here at Frugi.

As you may have noticed, we've been recruiting for another 12 people to join us, which will take our head count to nearly 50.

(I have fond memories of Lucy and I 'sharing' one computer, back in 2004, on dial-up internet in our spare room. I say 'sharing' as, given that I WAS the 'Today' department, I was generally packing orders in our porch and, quite literally, holding the baby!)

Along side this we are developing our new website and integration with new back end software systems. The role out date for these being March. This is really exciting, as the functionality on the new trade site is really cool, you're gonna love it!

Merv 1 Me and Merv, back in the 'tent'' days

However, it seems only yesterday that I was working for a Marquee Hire firm putting up big tents for weddings and the like. Hard work, but fantastic!

Up and down the Cornish lanes with Lorries and Land Rovers packed full of kit, meeting some great people and visiting some spectacular locations.

Mervin, the chap in the back of the Lorry with me, is no longer with us. I'd love to have been able to show him Frugi - his words would have been...colourful!

OK, back to planning our new warehouse extension, and my email

Cheers for now

Kurt
