[Colin conducting an interview. Very professional etc.]
I’m writing this from my Bed & Breakfast in York [Probably the nicest one I’ve ever stayed in. Seriously. Their webpage is here. They have a four poster bed in one of the rooms and- this is what I REALLY love- they offer Craster Kippers for breakfast.].
[Cath, earlier this morning etc.]
We have four stores to visit today. It’s going to be a very long Sunday.
We’re getting A LOT of good footage. We’re starting to get the editing done [Nice one, Colin] and should have some stuff posted on stormhoek.com really soon.
But it’s only Day Three and we’re just getting into the swing of things.
Tesco has been fantastic, and very supportive and helpful etc. Their supermarkets are huge. The one in Newcastle has 400 people working on one shift. 4 acres of floorspace. Wow.
We’re getting into the flow of things. To think that three people [Me, Colin and Cath], armed with only a small video camera and a carload full of Stormhoek schwag can do amazing stuff for one of the largest businesses in the UK… well, that’s the aim, anyway.
It’s nice being able to put all the stuff one has written about for the last few years into practice. In a supermarket, of all places.
Gotta go. More later…
