Usual Bank Holiday weather.

Well the Bank Holiday is over and as usual the weather was not so great, but that did not spoil it.
We rented out 8 bikes and sold quite a lot of our "bits and pieces" so it was good, what made it better was to see Margate busy just a shame it couldnt be like that every weekend, the only downside to the weekend was that my Dad had to go home earlier than we wanted as he was not feeling too good.

I have finally blogged !!

I have not blogged for a while due to the fact that my Dad has been in hospital and finding out he has a serious illness, i have just not felt like it but now feel i should carry on as "normal".

Well today we finally received our Tandem, after 3-4 attempts by a courier to collect it for us we decided to cancel and use another courier company who did the job within 2 days.We are very pleased with it and it will only need a clean and we will replace the seats for something more comfortable and may be change the handle bars to make it look more "Cruiser like" not bad for £100.00 a bargain infact.

Forget the Guardian...we had a mention in the Gazette.

You can forget the Guardian we had a mention in the Gazette again,we was in the "web views" spot mentioning us moaning about the weather.
Talking of the weather we decided that if we can not beat it we shall use it so we are now selling kites and toy gliders for kids to use in the windy weather (can`t say we are not trying)

Yet another crappy week at school!

Yet another crap week at the school (literally) that saw me having to deal with a blocked staff toilet that had to be removed before we could remove the blockage, then yesterday i had to contend with two lots of puke and a child with an exploding bum who pebble dashed the boys toilets......oh the joys of being a school premises manager.
So i am glad its the weekend and that we are in "Planet Thanet"

Typical bloody weather.

Its bloody typical of this weather.....crap at the weekend and when we are back in London it brightens up, the sun waited until 7.40 pm yesterday when we was crossing the Medway on our way back to London before it made an appearance.
On a better note had the analytics of our website emailed to us it shows we have had hits from here in the UK,France and two from the USA, so we know its working and as proof we have had a preliminary booking for the weekend so its not all bad.

What crap weather !!!!!

Bank Holiday weekend and as usual what crap weather but we still managed to rent some of our bikes out.
We only opened for half an hour on Sunday then decided to take the rest of the day off and take Caitlin to the Granville too watch a film and then in the evening we went out for dinner with my family, so had a nice Sunday.
Today we opened up had a bit of a tidy up in the unit sat around until around 3.00pm then decided to take Caitlin to the fair at Broadstairs, and now back in London for a short week at work, Roll on Friday !!

A new string to our bow.

Well today we added a new string to our bow or i should say we are now offering a new service, as we are located right on the Viking trail we have plenty of cyclists passing by and earlier one asked if i could repair a puncture which i did and was paid for my services the princely sum of £5.00 so now we are going to get a sign made up and positioned at the start of the harbour where it meets the Viking trail offering this service.
