It is almost surreal as how fast time flies!
I just realised that I haven't been updating my blog for almost 8 weeks.
8 weeks spent juggling between entertaining my kids, traveling back and forward to Bangkok and Singapore, researching new suppliers, new ingredients, founding new employees, dealing with management crisis, paying wages, delaying payment to suppliers, torturing Gerard mentally, replying to rude customers, developing our wine business, cooking, ignoring phone calls from energy company trying to make me save money, browsing the net for a bit of porn, creating menus for Christmas, forgetting my mobile phone in my Bangkok bedside table,.... etc
I guess that is the usual life of running a business!
The most annoying thing during the last 8 weeks was to have my computer stolen.
Everything is gone!
My family pictures (especially the ones from Arthur & Anais birth)- all my recipes & menus - the Flowers, Petals & Herbs book I wrote while at Roussillon- the collection of gay porn that took me ages to download-The budgets & forecasts for all my restaurants. Really annoying.
Also the reason why I did not write anything on my blog is that I did not have any money spare to buy a new PC- I paid the wages first- which I thought was a better thing to do!
The restaurant has been quite packed for the entire months of July & August, so I thought that I could indulge in a new bottom of the range PC world' slow and under equipped Compaq.
I am going to make the most of it!
Need to go back to the kitchen now- the whole pig has just arrived and needs to be butchered.
Next time I'll talk to you about the Tsunami of restaurant reviews we have had this summer...
