Move in Monday
April 1, 2007
Well its nearly time. We are just packing all our clothes and stuff, getting ready for the big move tomorrow. We have been making cakes, pies, soup, biscuits and pickles ready for the big day. I have spent an age polishing silver cutlery and it looks amazing, not sure how long it will stay that way though.
Plan for Monday. We are going to the fruit and veg market early to pick up some salad things and flowers. We are going to make up a big bunch of flowers to give Marina the land lady who is moving out, to say a big thank you for everything she has done for us. we also want some flowers to decorate the pub with. We are then up to the pub for the stock taker who will start at 9:30. He will go through all the things, count the beer and the glasses etc and tell us how much we owe Marina for these items of stock. We will also need to read the meters together.
I need to ring up the insurance company and make sure the insurance has been put in place. I then need to call the card companies and make sure that they are coming to install a new card machine. Have our new bed delivered for the B&B and also take deliveries for the 20+ beers we are having at the beer festival!
We will need to do our our stock take and make sure we have everything we need. We are bound to need a trip to the cash and carry to get some things, soft drinks, toilet paper etc…
We must wait for the call from the solicitors to say the money has been transferred before we can move our things in but we plan to open the pub at 6, so we will have to be quick. Rhian’s mum and dad will be making trips in the car as we have not hired a van. We have tons of kitchen equipment to take over and luckily Rhian’s parents have taken the day off to offer us a hand.
We will just be moving in the things that we really need that night and do the rest in stages over the coming week. We are mainly trying to get ready for the Easter weekend as this is when we are going to be mad busy. We will need to move some of the big things though like a really big oven Rhian has bought as we have booked an electrician to come and look at it on Tuesday. It will need to be professionally plugged in and so will some of the gas appliances.
The advert has been in the papers and it looks really good. It is our last day today and so we have been trying to get everything finished off. The menu, logo, flyers, and business cards are nearly finished and so we will send them to the printers soon.
Must go. Thank you all very much for all the support everyone has given us and all the encouragement. We are really tired right now and very anxious, but very happy too!
Love Helen xxxx
