He explained he’d been working on the enterprise and putting together deals, skryfwerk: “PINCH ME MOMENT ?.
“So then, for months I’ve been working really hard on a business which I absolutely am over whelmed I’ve managed to achieve with hundreds of stock to keep you guys going.
“Long hard days, stress, few bumps in the road but finally we are here and ready to kit out your homes for you ?.
“Loads and loads of deals I’ve laid on for you guys for this weekend ONLY. Any product your unsure of or sizing ect please message @therattanman.”
