Well Graham, flat out going nowhere!!
One month past with the first Krem@Queen's at the Titanic Dock and tomorrow is the handover of the Café at the PFC in the main Queens Building on the university road. All going well but i'm wrecked. How's the Boucher road deal going ? are you trading yet? I'll have to get down and see it when you are open.

Keep in touch Sé Good luck!!

sounds like you're slightly further along the path I'm following with music, want to start filming and recording artists as of this month.

Would you be interested in discussing a barista exchange out of interest? I would love to come out to NI
