I guess the bit I miss the most about working is going to trade shows. First of all you are given your tradeshow lanyards and then you visit lots and lots of stalls and treated really importantly. You are given loads of samples and loads of offers and you then want to spend spend spend and all at wholesale price. It is my idea of heaven. Now my personal thoughts are if shops  treated their customers this way, people would spend far more. I wonder if the babies are old enough for me to leave them for a long trade weekend!
