No news today but in honesty I wasn’t expecting anything, I think the most likely update is Tuesday/Wednesday when the receivers have a scheduled meeting.
I really do hope we get this moving this week, I want my pub! Have been considering my options over the weekend, in the absence of any development its all I can really do. I’m thinking that the pub needs my full time attention and won’t be able to suffer working alongside, I am naturally terrified about giving up the job that I love and offers me security but I think its the only way.
I do really love the licensed trade, I loved the Ship and its incredibly frustrating watching from the public side of the bar. When I came out of the Ship I knew I would miss it, but I think that Andy is the only one that knew how much (good call buddy). As much as I love my job, love the heavy engineering, the commercial negotiations and knowing that you have produced something that will be used by millions of people its a tough job and I can’t do it justice if I’m splitting time between two roles.
The pub is the new challenge and needs full time care and attention, its not going to be easy but it is going to be interesting. My business plan is ten years, that’s ten years to bring the pub back to its full glory and realising its business potential. Honourable mention to Russell at the Victory yesterday for the simple line “its always been your pub” its fantastic to have so much support and so many people believing in me, let’s hope its not long before we get to start the new chapter.
