    Good afternoon, gang! Looking forward to the arrival of my first NSD very soon, at least a couple this week, once all the silly first and last of the month spending is finished.

    Well, I see the Chicky Ferret Cafe had a fairly profitable first day's trading, once we smoothed over that little incident where a customer caught Hubert with his nose in the custard. It was the least we could do, let him have the whole three course meal for free. Him and his party of eighteen.

    Mrs Doyle made a fortune with her cream teas, just as well most of the customers had bad colds as those egg sarnies smelled a bit off to me. Think it is time we invested in a new flock of chickens at Ennessdee Towers, Chef is already casting greedy eyes over the existing ones.

    The sandwich du jour is not going down too well, I did say to Igor that the general public would not understand the attraction of ferret and chutney, but did he listen? At least we know what we will be having for tomorrow lunch.

    Hubert, stop nicking the food. Especially the leftover sprouts vindaloo. The customers will not appreciate the presence of a large, fat, hairy, transvestite donkey with intestinal gas doing a Donald over their meals!

    In other words we're off to a cracking start then?!

    Phew,I'm relieved....I was worried that it would be a disaster.Must be your calming influence Nargle. :)

    Hello you lovely lot, thought I had already signed up but evidently not! So usual 20 please and adding a 2 for Mon and Tues already! 2/20NSDs! Hoping today will be too but being drawn by Amazonia...have got items in my basket and they have been there a couple of days...need to hold off until I go food shopping on Fri and that gives me time to figure out if I really want them!

    Jodles :D
