My Husband quit his job

Today my husband finally quit his fulltime job as a Project Manager in a IT department. We are so super busy with our online shop modes4u.com and our wholesale business so we decided it is time for him to quit and join my business. We were planning this for a long time and the day has finally come. He will join me on 1st of October 09 and at the beginning he will write lots of new small software programs for us to make our work easier, more efficient and especially faster. There are a lot of work steps that are really time consuming and repetitive so this software should help us with that. He will also take care about our shop and write some new cool functions for it. I can’t wait for him to start working with me together in our office. It will be lots of fun 😉

Fabrics arrive in suspicious black packets

Today we got a new delivery of fabrics and the suppliers packed them in really suspicious looking black packets. They almost looked like the heroin packages that you can see in the movies. Each package is around 8kg heavy. Have a look at the pic to see the  similarity:

Truck bursting into flames

This morning I saw a truck bursting into flames right around the corner of our office. I passed the truck while I was on the bus as it just broke down. There was some white smoke so I thought, it just overheated. When I walked back from the bus stop to get to my office, I saw the first fire engine arrive and black smoke coming from the front of the truck. I went closer to have a look and the truck just started to burst into flames. It was crazy, the truck was in the middle of a busy street and they had to block all lanes during morning rush hour. The fire got quite big and burned out the whole front of the truck. I took a little video while I was standing there, check it out:
