On 22nd June last year, a customer posted a cheque for a music book in London. It arrived on 28th January, over 7 months later! It probably got stuck in the bottom of a bag somewhere and never escaped, wasn't even postmarked. In the meantime, the customer had paid for the order by card over the phone as I do keep an eye on cheque orders, in case they get delayed. So I've destroyed the cheque now, but what a record!
The new website has been up and running for almost two weeks now, there's still a lot of work to do to tidy up but overall I'm pretty happy with it.

The old website has been retired, as it was looking a bit tired and didn't give me all the functionality I wanted anymore. I still have a lot of work to do to improve the look of the product descriptions as inevitably there were formatting problems moving everything over.
But it is a cleaner, "whizzier" design and should also load faster on most computers. Do let me know what you think.
