Quarter day blues

You may have heard dire warnings on the news today that this is the "Quarter day" when most shop rents fall due and small retailers may not be able to meet their payments.

This applies to us too, and I have to admit my heart was in my mouth this lunchtime when I paid in our takings and checked our bank balance. Our shops make a profit for us, but it's a constant juggling act to keep enough money in the bank to be sure of covering their essential outgoings. 

Fortunately my own employer has paid  me this week, so by putting in a donation which I'll gift aid when I have a few free moments we should have just squeaked through.
