The Thailand deal has been done

I’m absolutely jubilant today because I’ve struck a fantastic deal with a Thai company to produce handmade items for my online store and physical store, and to ship them to me on demand for a great wholesale price.

This has really made me happy because it means I can now market those immediately and that should be really great fantastic and superb.

It will be great to open a business having such a unique selling point and I’m really pleased that I have done the deal. I have to say that using a dedicated Thai translation service has really paid dividends, I certainly could have done it without the help of the company of been using. There are plenty of online translators out there, sites like, where you upload the text, and a professional translator translates it into the language you have chosen. It’s quite quick and very cost-effective and it saves you awful lot of worry about whether you are being understood.

So after having used the service I am to translate to and from Thai, I am now going to use that service for my next deal, which I’m now going to start negotiating on. I’m hoping that I become an expert at doing it, so that I can even expand my online business further than I am considering now, maybe even selling direct to other retailers after I have negotiated deals wholesale.

Which means I’m now going to have a bit of a celebration. I haven’t been out for a drink and some nice food for months and things have been really tough at times. I’ve done well with my diet and exercise well, so me and my partner and going out tonight for a lovely meal. I may get a bit drunk and I’m not going to be ashamed about that, it’s time to let off some steam and have a good time for once. You have to enjoy the good times in life because the bad times are always round the corner, and the trick you learn is to learn how to cope with the bad times while really enjoying the good times so that life overall feels positive.

The strange tale of the missing cat

Was it the strange tail of the missing cat? Anyway, it’s a lovely story which I just heard.

The other day my neighbour knocked on my door to tell me that her cat had disappeared. She asked if I had seen it and unfortunately I hadn’t. I hoped that it would return but didn’t really think much more of it than that.

Well there was a strange twist in the tale today, because my neighbour came and knocked on the door and said that the cat had been returned. Apparently it’s had jumped into the back of a delivery lorry that was on the road. Somebody had some new furniture delivered and the cat had jumped in the back of the lorry. Because it was such a big lorry they didn’t notice the cat when they shut the doors and they went back to the depot.

The next day they opened up the doors and the cat jumped out, and they obviously had no idea where it had come from. So they took it to a local cat rescue centre and thankfully the cat had a microchip in it, and they found out who owned it. The cat was returned today and I neighbour was delighted.

So that’s a great end to the story and it’s nice to hear something with a positive outcome for once.

I’m feeling better today, I had a real wobble about friendships, diet and whether my online business was going to work. But the shop is coming along nicely and I am sourcing plenty of lovely products as well.

There’s also been good news on the Thai deal as well. I’ve just had the latest email from them translated from Thai into English by the Thai translator I’m using.

And it’s really hopeful, I have now written my response and uploaded it to the Thai translation service I’m using and hopefully within the next couple of days I can get that sent off. Then I’m hoping we can strike a deal and I can get these products moving to my shop from Thailand.

So it’s really good news and hopefully things are on the up for me now, I’ve had a real down week or so and I’m really glad that I’m starting to change my mood.
