I'm letting the cat out of the bag

Well although my future plan is not yet finalized I'm going to tell you about it. It seems that this new venture is all consuming and I can't think of anything else. I usually post everyday, Monday to Friday but I'm struggling with content so here goes...

I'm opening a restaurant, well actually a diner serving breakfast and lunch with some sweets thrown in for good measure. My offer has been accepted by the seller, but the deal is subject to me getting a lease. On top of that there are health and building inspections, government tax and business numbers , bank accounts, business licence, CHEAP renovations to think about and a menu to prepare and test and of course a name.

The name that came to mind right away was the Elbow Room because the diner is so small but I have since found out another restaurant in Vancouver has the same name so I'm not sure if I want it now. The second is Magpie's Diner and the third is Maggie's Diner...

Tomorrow I'm off to the bank to set up an account as well as POS account to accept debit, Visa and Mastercard.

I'm so scared I can hardly think and at the same time I'm as excited as a seven year old on Christmas Eve, I'm having a blast but oh how I hope it all works.
