The rush has slowed down a bit, but sales are still meeting our budget expectations. You received our owl this morning with the figures? Not bad, eh? Mum's tickled pink.

We're about to run out of our first run of the packaging boxes and so we've put in a new order with Demeter. (Oh, drat. We knew we forgot something when we sent you our owl: we wanted to show you the three new designs she's come up with for us for products in the spring line. All the owls are out at the moment, so we'll send the sketches to you tomorrow, along with some more samples for the Common Rooms.)

We stopped by Zonko's yesterday with a few of the new prototypes. He pokered up right away when he saw us. Guess he's a bit embarrassed for bowing to pressure--from your godfather, probably--and telling us he won't carry our stuff anymore. AS HE SHOULD BE. But we treated him as if he were our favourite uncle, and we just HAD to stop to show off our new babies. He still says the same thing, that he's not going to change his mind...but he all but licked his chops when we showed off our newest gizmos. He especially liked the trainers that turn into ice skates, once you walk onto ice. We hope if we keep popping round every month, he'll eventually weaken and start carrying our stuff again. He's too much a born salesman to keep turning his back on us.

Hitty asked us specially to say hello to you from her. She's spoiling us rotten. Couldn't have made it this far without her help.

I had to pinch myself a few times when I had the chance to sit down and read over it properly. It's brilliant.

I love the things you've been working on for the Christmas line, too. It's a great idea to put smaller versions of product samples in crackers -- I think we'll sell loads of those. We might pass out some in the common rooms before hols. Maybe you could add a small message inside of the crackers with a bit of an advert in it.

I'm planning to roll out the Prophet advertisements for the storefront opening and the Christmas line in a few weeks.

Are we still planning on the grand opening on the day we start our Christmas hols?

If you wanted to wait for a week or so, that's certainly understandable. We're certainly doing enough business by owl order, looks like.

And hello back to Hitty! Give her a hug for me, will you? I'm so glad you all are getting on.

I've been thinking of talking to her about putting her on salary, if you're all right with it.

Depending on what she's comfortable with, of course.

I've been thinking I could tell her that she could use it to buy things for her personal space at the New London house, and towards things like buying special spices or ingredients for food she wants to make. I could also let her know that she would be welcome to help decorate the house with things she wants to have around once I gain ownership properly. It's her house too, and she does use the sitting room and kitchen quite a bit, after all.

We might talk with her about it over Christmas -- it's the sort of conversation one should probably have in person.
