Firstly, it's me again, Mr GG.
As will become apparent from this weeks ramble, the girl has been somewhat busy. Above are team No.9 at about 9.30am, completely oblivious of the impending demand for coffee, cakes and lunch. Which henceforth shall be known as 'The Rush'
The first paying customer arrived at 8.40am, and for the record ordered a cappuccino. I know a photo of a cup of coffee really isn't necessary, but it is mighty fine coffee.
In the 'Calm before the storm', the cafe is ready to receive.
The sign writer did a cracking job and with Bloke's hard work, the cafe had been transformed.
The particularly fine weather this morning made our pavement tables irresistable to the 'the ladies who'
Anyway, back to 'The Rush', nobody is sure where it came from and nobody is sure when it started, but when it came team No.9 sprang in to action and stood shoulder to shoulder, resolute and unwavering. Even Connie the cow, who lives over the coffee machine, remained stedfast.
......okay, so that was just an excuse to crowbar in this great photo of a cow!
The most rewarding part of the day was when two ladies who had lunched at No.9, returned in the afternoon for coffee and cake. Repeat business on our first day!
To finish off, I would like to thank everyone who has helped us to get this far and for the cards, gifts (all of which are in the cafe), encouragement and support. I know the girl has found you all a great source of inspiration. A special note to The List Writer, the fabulous aprons will be featuring in a blog of their own shortly!
Garden Girl will return...........
