Money money money

We've paid for the business, paid our rent deposit (£440), paid for our Public Liability and Employee inurance (£350), have our Food and Hygiene training to pay (£325). Have incentive cards, uniforms, some stock to buy, and then we're ready to go.

I talked to the Performing Rights Society yesterday and they want £180 per year for us to be able to play CD's and the Radio to up to 12 customers. Er, I think we'll have to wait before we consider forking out for that.

I just saw a mock-up of the permanent website (I'm just blogging as you know at the moment), and it looks, as they say in Biggleswade, "Swwwweeeeeet". (Cheers Graham B), you are indeed a web master.

Watch this space, for a menu and prices of what we serve, and staff profiles.

So many people have been really encouraged by our café with a difference. Thanks again, to those who have enquired about pre-paying coffee to help cover our start-up costs. I've sold 3 years of drinks (Well, 3 x 50 weeks of drinks). If you're interested too, please drop me an email

Tomorrow it's a trip to the bank manager! (Gulp)

Moch on!
