Today has been a tough day. Limited funds in the company bank accounts mean I have had to be choosy on which suppliers to pay. A large VAT bill awaits next week so I have been trying to conserve as much cash to pay for that. Bad weather expected over the weekend has also meant sales have been slower than I would have hoped.

Today one of our Dutch suppliers demanded payment of their final two invoices from last year. It will be fine (I paid one today) but it is razor thin now in the accounts.

I do not have much wiggle room in the next few weeks. I just hope we can get through. I have so much I want to do with the foundation and all and I really really really do not want to let anyone down. Not least the staff.

I hit my phone and the screenshot of you appears. It is getting me through all of this.

All my love,

Dad xx
