Had A Change Of Department.

First off, I would like to just take the opportunity to express my hatred for the snow right now.   It is currently snowing still, however it is just that kind of fine, hard, sleety snow that you can see being blown across the roads and pavements.   I still hate it.   I had to drive to work in that this morning!   And on the way home.   And people were over-taking me at 60mph (or something)  It was stupid.   It wasn't fun.   They are calling it 'The Beast From The East' on the news.   Wonderful....

We were really short staffed in work today.  Not on my Homewares department, but on the Accessories department on the ground floor of the House Of Fraser store.   Coincidently, I started off working on the Accessories department when I first started working for the company some fifteen years ago, so it wasn't new to me, well, the stock was obviously, but I really enjoyed it.   I found today I still don't mind tidying handbags.   Plus it gave the opportunity to check out all the Ted Baker handbags I would love to own.   I spent most of today either serving customers, and it was really busy down there being a Saturday, but also I helped out finishing off price-checking and satoing (putting stickers on) their sale stock.   Being totally honest, I really enjoyed the day.  It was something different from what I am used to, and something I had not done for a long time.   It was good.   The day seemed to just fly by too.

One of the things I did notice was the amount of customers that came on that department in a short space of time, compared to what it is normally like on Homewares.   A lot of the customers that come onto Homewares usually go to our Buy and Collect, and then maybe they might buy something on the department afterwards, but it depends.   Homewares was apparently 'dead' today.   Normally I would have blamed that on the snow, because it has been bad today, but considering how busy it was on Accessories, and the Menswear department which is opposite, I am not so sure.  Strange really.   Perhaps we need to do something more to promote the Home department?....

Anyway.   I did really enjoy the day.  We have got so many scarves.  That was what I was mainly pricing up today.  And they kept falling off the bloody hangers.   If that is all I have to complain about though, that's not bad.

I also finished at 4.15 today, which was really cool, particularly as the weather was bad it meant I could get home before the worst of it hit.   Spent the evening watching The Chase, Q.I and An Evening With Jane McDonald, which was really good.  She is such an incredible singer, and she looks so stunning too.  I really enjoyed the show.

All in all an interesting, but a certainly good day.

Thanks for reading.
