more juggling...


TICK-TOCK
time seems to be flying at the moment
and i can't help but get a couple more Chicago's done
before the market...just a reminded
OLIVE TREE MARKET AT THE JUNCTION PS NEWCASTLE
sooooooooo excited...

So if you are in the area why not do some Christmas shopping!!!

i have now got a three column blog and thanks to bellgirls links
i did manage to wing it and amaze myself by being able to do it...
i used this link...HERE...

also if you check out bellgirls site
you can view her newly arrived "Chicago bellgirl"
I think she will have many an adventure...

for all who asked...from last post...
i cook 5 nights a week and weekend lunches...
and yes i am very over cooking...
but i am one of these types that presentation is everything
and if the plate doesn't look just as appealing...i wont serve it...
coming up with specials is the hardest
as you can't keep everyone happy and you have to
be able to sell enough to make your money back
as i don't like freezing stuff...
also most of the stuff that i put on the specials
takes longer than all the usual food...
and if I'm the only one cooking it takes up to0 much time...
we have a very small country pub and most of the time
i can get through about 10-20 meals by myself...
as i didn't mention before that includes taking the orders,
taking meals out and all the prep and washing up...
don't you just love running your own business???
that's why 2 nights a week i get a lady in to help with prep and orders
and dishes etc...
i really don't know how some places have 5 or more staff
racing around the place
the wages would kill me...maybe i need to up the prices???
but i hate doing that cause i think most people in town
wouldn't be able to afford to go out...
and that just doesn't sit right with me...

Wow, very busy, your town is very lucky to have you. As for small business and hours, do they every end?

Goodness me you're busy! I don't know how you manage to do your sewing on top of all this! I do like a country pub, I must say. I worked as a barmaid, and was the darling of the demolition crew(!), but I was a terrible waitress!

Bellgirl's settled in nicely, and she's been flitting around today, she's quite the social butterfly! She hid in her sleeping bag until the Bug went for his nap- he loves dolls!

Well done on the three-column blog, I couldn't manage it on my own- and good luck with the market!
