We went for a drive and struck a massive haul in under 40 minutes, just could not believe how many hidden golf balls are laying under the shrubbery around the outer golf course.Titleist ProV balls in abundance littered all over the place, followed by a good haul of Maxfli and Calloway and Srixon, it was interesting to see a lot of Taylormade adding to the tally.
Our bag was near to breaking, my coat pockets were bulging and my back was aching,84 golf balls certainly weigh something, it was a shame because i had to leave so many behind, but i will be back there with a bigger bag and deeper pockets to hoover up the rest of them.
I have just put them in the wash and looking through them all they are top quality golf balls, i do not think there will be much waste if any from this lot, i am very pleased.
I picked up my new stickers today, they are looking very good, our website details have been added to each sticker and the union jack flag flying in the corner in place of the numbers, and tilly-miss picture has been added to the logo sticker that is placed on the lid, very smart.
The house at the moment is like a production line, golf balls and stickers and the pots laying everywhere, i am getting ready to make tilly-miss known amongst the tourist shops in Windsor and Eton and want to be ready and prepared just in case.
Tilly-Miss Trademark Application update : have been told today the application has been accepted for publication in the trademark journal, this means tilly-miss will appear in the journal on the 5th February 2010 for a 2 month period, the office have told me they see no problems with the application which should then complete on 5th April which will be great news.
Tilly is resting after her adventure today, she come home and had a huge plate of fish for her supper, she was starving after chasing rabitts and squirrels all afternoon.
Tomorrow i will say my last farewell to my Auntie Jo god bless her, she sadly left our world on the 13th January aged 82 after quite a long illness, a lovely auntie who was more like a mother to me and my wife during the earlier years and up to the point of passing, they certainly do not mould them like they did anymore, a gracious lady who never moaned or complained just carried on daily, i have very fond memories of my younger days growing up, auntie was always there with a smile and a laugh that would light up around you, god bless and rest peacefully i will certainly miss you.
Right that is me for tonight, time for a cuppa and time for thought, goodnight all….tilly x
