Evening all, I've managed to read back - hurrah, although sorry to read about your trials and tribulations Lizzie.
Not been so busy with customers today but a queue of people one after the the other to 'talk' to me about something or other, there are days when I really feel like changing my name!
One man wanted to set up a Faro Night, which I am sure is a super game, but not sure what I can 'bring to the table' as it were. Another wanted to advertise his massages, not sure a tea room is the best place, although I have ended up with a order for his Open Night, so am doing his 'nibbles' on Thursday. Another man came to service the (rather ancient) central heating system and stalled at the point when we realised there was no oil in the tank. Another phone call needed to be made. Trying to organise my Christmas decoration scheme, found a nice company in the UK who supply good stuff, going for a 'Scandi' look, but again, a phone call, an e-mail, another e-mail and now have to wait for a log in code before I can order. And of course delivery to France is not easy.
A friend is making me a compost heap system and he came just as I was going to try and close the cafe up, he wanted a full description of what I wanted - "a composting area the same as yours" I said, but he wanted a blow by blow account of what, where and how, at which point more customers sneaked in the door! And as lovely and flattering as it is, I didn't want to explain the recipes of each & every individual cake I make. Oh well, I thought, evening to myself, lock the doors, put the shutters down and have some peace & quiet, oh no - Daddy rang up, can I have Charlie as he is too busy to deal wih him? Love Charlie to bits, but that meant cooking a proper dinner, discussing homework and tidying room and making bed, which I had hoped to put off until Thursday. Also discovered that one of my delightful kittens has decided that Charlie's scrunched up duvet is a perfect toilet area!!!
So, tumble dryer is just about finished, so must go and re-make bed. And then it is the dreaded tax form to fill in. Glad I found time to vent on here a bit, sorry people, hopefully my future contributions will be more positive.
Hope all is well, new plants sound exciting Dove, mystery plant looks good Hosta, poor birdie Pat. Lizzie, maybe soon we can meet again, when you are more mobile. :)
Good evening all. x
