I'm so excited now I can hardly bear it! I've set the date for Cushion&Cake's opening, Saturday 7th May 2011. That's the end of next week!
But it is OK. I'm really pleased with the progress I've made on getting the place ready. Today, with the help of my partner Stuart, his mum Marie and my friend Jill, we got the place scrubbed top to bottom and the first coat of paint on. I like to think I'm organised and efficient but Marie just came in the door with a massive packed lunch for all in one hand and a roller in the other and got everyone to work without any hesitations. She's coming back tomorrow for hopefully more of the same.
I've decided not to post any more of the 'before' pictures now rather just let you see when it is all lovely and how I see it in my mind. I hope that's OK! Instead I'll show you a picture of me with an owl at the weekend :-)
I'll keep you posted on any more exiting developments over the course of the week...
