Working from home?

HIGHS AND LOWS OF WORKING FROM HOME….
Whether you’ve got kids needing attention constantly, pets to feed, plants to water, a new squashed desk setup to get used to or a fridge full of food trying to tempt you, all day, every day, and you don’t even know what day it is (welcome to our world!)… we thought it might be fun to share a few thoughts on how we’re settling in to this ‘new normal’ home life, and tips we have seen from others too
Please add your best ideas & photos below – & share the lows too!
* Exercise – definitely a must every day for children! Get rid of some excess energy! It works well first thing in the morning, but we also like to get outside in the afternoon. Our little ones have been enjoying Ragdolly Anna’s Youtube dancing on the wet days.
* Continuing on the excercise theme, I just read a tip to set up your printer in another room, to keep you getting up and down and not sat on your bum all day. I most certainly will not be doing this one, as with little ones around I am never sat down long enough as it is!
* Music – is great for you (maybe with headphones!) and also for little ones, pop some nursery rhymes on and they will happily sing along for a while….. sometimes! We use BBC School Radio that the girls listen to at nursery sometimes.
* Stay hydrated – multiple cups of tea & squash are the ‘healthy’ options here. And then treat yourself at Wine o’Clock once your little treasures are in bed
* Go with the flow – some days homeschooling won’t go to plan, or the twins will ask to have their bath in the paddling pool…. Sometimes you need to say “hell yeh why not” and just throw some soap and sponges in with them and have a sit down for 10 minutes!
* Be grateful for the little things – the sun shining, rainbow pictures in windows and birds chattering in the Spring. A hot cup of tea and a big smile from your little ones
* Keep a routine – get up, showered and dressed as you usually would (not that the ‘getting up’ part is generally an issue with little ones if you are home schooling!!!)
And remember, just do your best. This too shall pass.

We are still here!

Firstly, we hope you are all staying safe & well in these strange and uncertain times?

We just wanted to let you know that we are still here taking your orders and dispatching goods every 2-3 days.

We are a small family business and don’t have any other staff so can safely continue to operate and dispatch our products. Our couriers have some delays due to increased demand combined with reduced staff numbers, and orders will be sent every few days, so please bear with us as orders will take a bit longer than normal to arrive with you at the moment.

People who use Herbie’s Yard Supplies services

Herbie’s Yard Supplies offers various services to the public.

We have to hold the details of the people who have requested the service in order to provide it. However, we only use these details to provide the service the person has requested and for other closely related purposes. For example, we might use information about people who have subscribed to any of our services to carry out a survey to find out if they are happy with the level of service they receive. The type of information we will collect about you includes; Your name, address, delivery address, phone number, email address, order details and any relevant correspondence relating to each order.

When people do subscribe to our services, they can cancel their subscription at any time and are given an easy way of doing this.

Job applicants, current, and former employees

When individuals apply to work with us, we will only use the information they supply to us to process their application. Where we want to disclose information to a third party, for example where we want to take up a reference or obtain a ‘disclosure’ from the Criminal Records Bureau we will not do so without informing them beforehand unless the disclosure is required by law.

Once a person has taken up employment with us, we will compile a file relating to their employment. The information contained in this will be kept secure and will only be used for purposes directly relevant to that person’s employment. Once their employment with us has ended, we will retain the file in accordance with the requirements of our retention schedule and then delete it.

Disclosure of personal information In many circumstances we will not disclose personal data without consent. However when we investigate a complaint, for example, we will need to share personal information with the organisation or individual concerned and with other relevant bodies.

There are also circumstances where we can pass on personal data without consent for example, to prevent and detect crime and to produce anonymised statistics.

 

Access to personal information

Herbie’s Yard Supplies tries to be as open as it can be in terms of giving people access to their personal information.

RUGS!

Herbie’s now has in stock a selection of the excellent quality (and very good value) Rhinegold rugs.

In a choice of weights and styles, help keep your 4-legged friend cosy this Winter 🙂

NEW EQUINE SPEED SKIPS

The NEW Equine Speed Skips are now in stock at Herbie’s!

Designed with a smaller, lighter rake, this minimises the strain on your elbow and wrist while mucking out – and we can personally vouch for it!

The scoop is larger than the traditional design (meaning less spillages!) but is still very lightweight.
