Just to clear something up, everyone is welcome to visit my pub on the wonderful Isle of Wight. However if you are visiting to see the motorcycling then I am afraid you will be disappointed, we have a scooter rally but that’s it. We are also not particularly well known for whisky production, well not at all actually. If you enter the word “Isle” as your destination in the sat nav it will need more information because, and this will come as a surprise to some, there are multiple islands around the UK. I know, how crazy is that? More than one island, go figure!
Over the years we have developed an ingenious way of telling these islands apart. It’s a bit of a secret code but I think that I can share it here we are, after all, amongst friends. We name them differently, I know it’s crazy right? But bear with me it actually works! It’s a system we copied from other places and it is genuinely successful. It’s not perfect of course because unlike, for example, a county there are other words ahead of it like ‘isle’. You have to persevere and get past that to the word at the end but when you are there hey presto it’s unique. There is a tip that can help you here, mail delivery agents use it a lot, if you read or listen to the whole sentence then you get all of the information. I know it sounds odd but give it a go it really works and you will wonder how you ever got on before.
If the last two paragraphs made no sense then please visit at the end of May for bike racing, distillery tours are better in September and you can apply in the pub for an offshore bank account.
My estate agent visited today, the apartment is a rental, and after ten years of storing junk furniture that came with the property he told me that they have no inventory. Better than that in the health and safety crazed modern world they cannot let the place furnished as the furniture is too old and has no certificates. When did wardrobes start needing certificates? Is there a school at the back of the furniture store where they revise for exams on how to stay still?
This is the last week of full time day job and I think that should help take some of the load off. I was discussing this the other day and realised that moving home while working full time is stressful, moving jobs from a stable home is also tiresome. I am doing day job, moving home and starting a new business, in truth is it any wonder that I am tired?
