Conscious of the fact that I told a few people Chatty Cafe would be starting in April I have done a few things this week.
On Tuesday I bought a some melamine trays, napkins and some cake boxes. Lots of my friends have wanted to take home pieces of cake in the past so I guess I'll encourage the Chatters to do so as well. I may or may not charge them! It'll save me eating too much of the sweet stuff myself if they take it.
This morning I made chocolate chip biscuits with Little Guy. I froze half a batch of dough so I can pull that out in a hurry if necessary once the cafe gets underway. I ordered a few boxes of Brownie mix and some herb teas from Foreign Buyers Club earlier this week as well. Of course Blooming normally bakes from scratch but when the pressure is on Ghirardelli makes a mean brownie.
Lastly today I told my Friday student about my plans knowing that his wife would be keen. I was right, he practically signed her up without even asking her. They are traveling to the USA this summer so I expect a bit of real-life practice will be great for her. She's a lovely woman and just the type of person I would want in my cafe.
It's starting to come together! I think I am going to need a website soon to keep track of all these business ventures.
