Took some pictures of the outside of Dad's shop today. I meant to do it yesterday but the weather was too horrible for it; but just look at the weather today! I got a few interesting angles but I rather like this one. The near 2/3 of the building is Dad's shop, the furthest 1/3 is a dog groomer.

Anyhow, in half an hour (midnight) the business officially changes hands.

In other news, my knee hurts and I am exhausted >.< to bed with me.

P.S. Bought an art diary today. Thinking I'll make a hard copy of the whole photo a day thing. Louise may or may not have made me think of it ^.^

Today was mostly taken up by the final stocktake at Dad's business. It was made easier by using the files created in a stocktake around two months ago, but it still took a lot of doing. Very exhausting. We used little white and orange dots to mark what had been done so that nothing got doubled up or missed. There are little sticker dots everywhere!

As of Monday, Dad will be signing over the business to another family member and going into partial retirement, going into the business for a few hours a day to help them get things worked out. A few months from now and he should be fully retired. Though if I know Dad, he'll still find some way of being busy.

It's a big change for all of us. I took this photo of the whole family (including Barnaby) behind the front counter. Glad I got this, a good way to help remember something that's been a huge and positive part of my life, and played a big part in making me who I am.

It's going to be strange, but I think everything will be just fine
