Manic Mondays

Mondays mornings soon come around, Ive a busy one ahead.

Come with me for a quick walk, its not far. Honest.

Around the corner

Past the mere, pretty view, isnt it!

Up the main street. Keep up.

There it is, at the top of the main street

Ooh! The Mustard Seed Cofffee Shop, do you fancy a cuppa?

For such a large village, we do not have anywhere to have a coffee and chat. People are in such a rush these days, no time to socialise.   So one person decided to do something about it (not me) and so The Mustard Seed coffee shop was created

Great the fires on. Quick grab a seat, while you can!

Every Monday our local church rooms turns into a shop, serving tea, "posh coffees" and toasted teacakes.  Its a roaring success, we usually average about 50 customers in under 2 hours.  Granted the majority of the customers are of a certain age.  But we do have some young Mums and also grandchildren calling in.  I know it may sound twee, but this is a lifeline to some people. Even the local ramblers have changed their meeting day so they can come up to the cafe.

They pull tables together and drag chairs around.  They are very loud. 

Everyone enjoys a cappacino, toast, companianship and a good ol' natter, whatever the age.
