Why so early?
Well, I am a designer and maker, which means that pretty much everything in the business is done by me. As the meme goes, "I am not Amazon Prime".
The last thing I want to do is let anybody down, so I need to make sure that I have enough time to make, finish (the technical term for making it shiny!), wrap, pack and get everything to the Post Office in time for the cut off dates.
Sometimes it would be fun to be a cardboard robot, but not all the time, and definitely not in the rain!
