A little update

Well it's been a long time since we put our house up for sale full of enthusiasm for our new home and business. As soon as solicitors and planning departments get involved it all goes ridiculously slow. It's been a very frustrating year but we are on the last lap of the local Planning department's check and patiently waiting for the thumbs up. As soon as we get the golden thumb we will be all systems go to create our new home and a fabulous new place to eat and drink in Ilkeston. While we wait we have been busy testing recipes, baking bread, making tables, chairs and stools (with the help of our friends!) and clearing old dust out the building that came tumbling down from the ceiling when we removed old boards. It was so black and must have been there since it was first built in 1871! Here's a glamorous photo of me and Kev having a romantic day together one Sunday....

I've also been busy building this website and all the social sites to go with it. We will be posting our progress as the renovation gets underway so we can look back and remember what we started with. Watch this space!

Here is the ground floor where our cafe will be, you need a good imagination to see past the muck at the moment but trust me...it will be good in the end!
