Christmas Time, again.
As usual we are going to be closed between Christmas and New Year, our excuse being that we can get no deliveries until the New Year. Though that is actually true!
This is the only time I am personally guaranteed to get some time off, and that time at home is very precious, particularly this year.
We will be having a staff Christmas meal on Friday 21st in the afternoon, so we will be closing at 1pm, or perhaps shortly after? on that Friday, and we will be gone until January 3rd.
(Scottish people are genetically unable to work on January 2nd).
We may see you in the Bailie Hotel on Friday afternoon, but after that we will see you in 2019.
Wishing everyone a Very Merry Christmas, or Happy Holidays to be more politically correct?
Ho Ho Ho!
Happy Holidays from Ian, Neasa , Sandra and Victoria.
(once again, in alphabetical order!)
Many thanks to all of our clients – no business is anything without you, after all!
We wish you all a happy and healthy Christmas, and onwards to year 2019 and beyond!
Please, please remember to NOT sleep in your contact lenses- it may have been a great night out, but your next day or two in hospital may not be so great? It is not worth it – for more information in case of an emergency, please click this link.
I took a call about three weeks ago from a lady who wanted to order contact lenses and solutions for her son.
I was certain that I knew who she was, and that it was her son’s name I wrote down, but when we called her to advise that the lenses were here, she asked Sandra if it had been her son who ordered them, as she had not!
At the time I thought I knew who I was talking to, but obviously I was wrong, and I ordered contact lenses for the wrong person.
We have thought through every son with initials D. C. Just in case I wrote down the wrong name, but in my mind I was sure I knew who I was talking to.
If you ordered lenses for your husband, partner or son on 28th November and you have not heard from us, please get in touch.
Completely our (my) fault.
As usual we will not be open on Monday, obviously – it is a bank holiday! But we also have not (for a very long time) opened on the Saturday of a bank holiday weekend.
We will be “gone” at 5.30pm on Friday.
We hope you have a great long weekend, and we will see you on Tuesday – business as usual then!
Hey folks – there were only two people who were good with “The” Facebook, Vicky was one, but Victoria has retired and she doesn’t check in so much at the moment, which left Neasa, who is not here right now!
As you all know, I expect – Neasa is off for the next few months, minding Cian, her new BABY BOY!
I am aware that Neasa would often pick up orders for contact lenses at “unusual times”, and she still will try to, but it would be easier for her if you were to order them here, for the moment at least!
She is still forwarding orders to us, but it would be better to give her a break—?
Sandra and I do try to login to Facebook to see the messages, but it used to show on Neasa’s feed, and not mine, which I have not tried to fix, as I “do not do The Facebook”, at least not willingly – a child of mine was disgusted that I had 92 unseen messages. I thought that they all came from my “personal” friends, rather than friends of the “site”??. Maybe not? I am fairly technical, but not when it comes to the Facebook. I would rather, and did delete the messenger app on my phone – it was difficult to get rid of that number, of whatever that number was – “Likes” “Messages” “Pokes” (what????) IDC (meaning I Don’t Care).
Or just drop us an e-mail – that works too, any time of day! Please give us your name, and address, or DOB, and an up to date contact telephone number, along with what you want obviously! (And do you need solutions, or lenses only?)
I have just been out for a look around the lane. It is a strange situation – I can see tarmac in front of my car – and there is hardly any snow at that corner of the house, but down the driveway there is at least six inches. The lane to the main road is 6+ inches deep. I gave up after 50 metres, as I would probably have had a heart attack before being able to clear that much snow – no point to check much further (around the steepest part of the lane, on a tight corner).
I got new tyres on the car on Monday, but it is only a FWD car, so I do not think that I will be able to make it in tomorrow.
I will have a go in the morning, (I have a healthy and fit 16 year old lad stuck here!) but given the extension of the red status warning for Cavan and Monaghan, I doubt that I will make it.?
Serious apologies for anyone needing to collect spectacles, and the 10.00am appointment – a young 8 year old who was off school anyway – many local schools were going to be having a training day tomorrow.
Who knows! Maybe the wind will blow the snow away, like at the house, but I doubt it.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but at this stage I do reckon that the week is a complete write off?
Perhaps I should post a note if I AM there on Saturday?
If either of the Driving Sight Test appointments did manage to arrive Thursday evening, I am sorry we were not there – but it was a Status Red!
Apologies – no way I could make it.
