It's all systems go
Posted on February 03 2012
It's all systems go at Marzipants HQ today. I got a phone call from Ashok this morning to say that the first delivery of cotton will arrive next week & the final delivery the week after. It's absolutely brilliant news as it means we can start work next week, so I've booked my ticket & I'm flying out on Tuesday. I can't believe it's actually happening! Even more excitingly my lovely Mumsie (pictured below) has decided to come out to India with me for the first 2 weeks to help me get everything up & running. Mumsie is an actress & luckily February is quite a quiet month in the film & tv world, so she said she'd come & lend me a hand. Mumsie is a bit of an intrepid traveller. She's been all over India & thinks nothing of jumping on a bus for 12 hours, or slumming it in the most basic of guest houses, so she'll be the perfect companion & it will be so useful for me to have a 2nd opinion whilst I'm out there as I know they'll be some big decisions to make. Even though we both live in London, I never get to spend nearly enough time with her, so to have her with me as I embark on this adventure is a real treat & I feel so lucky.
