WOW where have the last 4 years gone!!

Well I really don't know where to start... I'm thrilled, proud, fulfilled and honoured that today is Spoilt Rotten's 4th Anniversary, and what an AMAZING 4 years we have had!! How has 4 years flown by so quickly?? It's literally been a #dreamcometrue

It feels like the last 4 years has gone quicker than the 4 years prior in my life because with Spoilt Rotten we have had such an exciting and non-stop forward moving journey with so much achieved and yet still so much to come... since that first day, a cold Saturday morning, and it was very cold... 10am... a small gathering of family, friends and local neighbours joining us to see what was popping up on their wonderful High Street... and what a month to start in the quietest of the year...

I remember it vividly, my proud Grandpa (aged 93) and my proud Nanny (in-law) doing the honours of officially cutting the ribbon and announcing Spoilt Rotten officially OPEN FOR BUSINESS. Moments before... were of panic trying to somehow get the ribbon tied across the door... logistics... but my very prepared mother-in-law had it all in hand and we swiftly opened at 10am... to move inside to the warmth. Our boys, Archie (aged 3) and Oscar (aged 4 months) had the best day ever, family, dogs & cake their 3 favourite things!! It was a long but very enjoyable day.

There's so much of a story to tell I often joke about writing a book about our journey... maybe one day... but I'd be here all day, perhaps year, typing if I were to relive it all with you now, I would love to but for two reasons I can't today, 1. Every time I write a sentence about what we have achieved or how proud I am of my incredible team and Spoilt Rotten I get very emotional and teary (the same as when I read the heartfelt reviews that our truly loyal and supportive clients write for us) and 2. I am so so so busy managing the two salons we now have I literally don't have enough hours in the day and have the school run soon... I get only 6 hours a week (now both boys are in school full time) working from home during the day, the rest of my time is at the salons/ school runs/ entertaining the children and dogs... and then working through the evenings & nights (pretty much daily) to catch up...

Our highlight of the last 12 months has without a doubt been our huge move into Number 17, who would've thought moving just 10 doors down the road could transform our ability so much to offer even more to your gorgeous Spoilt Rotten doggies. With it comes double the rent, rates and responsibility BUT it was worth every single second of hard work, commitment and investment and we absolutely LOVE our new Salon and so do the doggies!!
