A quick update ― sneak peek

We're sorry we haven't been able to keep you all as up to date as we would have liked with the renovations at the café. We have been taking photos though, so you will get to see them... eventually.

We're moving ahead at quite a good pace and we're getting close to opening date. I'm not saying exactly when, because when you're waiting for things to be delivered... or even delivered correctly, you can't always be sure you'll get things when you are told. Until just one week ago everything was still upside-down in the shop; now things are looking a lot different.

We're doing most of the work ourselves. This basically means that my Father in Law has done pretty much everything with a little help from us and some friends.

Really, without our friends and relatives letting us use tools and volunteering for hard labour, we wouldn't be anywhere near finished! Other friends have volunteered to come in at the end to help with the final decoration and clearing up. Yet other friends have helped us along by encouraging us not to give up!

There are still not enough hours in every day to get everything done on our 'to-do' lists, but we're trying!

Last week I injured my back and were out of action for about 3 days. Not the best timing... but then again when is there a good time to be ill?

So that's all for now. I've been able to give more frequent short updates on our facebook page so, if you want to know more, pass by there.
