I did tell you.

It is true, we do have a new baby. Freddie Alexander was born 25th August 2011.

I know this is supposed to be a blog primarily about food but to be honest, Fred is primarily about food himself. He eats incessantly, insatiably & indiscriminately of time of day. It's difficult to know if you're doing the right thing with a week old baby as they have no real way of communicating the reason for their crying & discomfort. They just cry & seem dis-comfortable.

I'm thinking I may create a new Freddie diary blog to document all this.
We shall see.

I also need to review some loose leaf tea kindly sent to me by Little Chef, though presently, I tend to drink the strongest coffee available, dictated to & by Freddie's insatiable appetite and unsociable time keeping.

Oh and also, today would be the 65th birthday of one Freddie Mercury, whom our Freddie is partially named after (along with Frederick Chopin, Freddie Fender & Freddie Flintoff)

Let her eat cake

We popped into the cake shop this afternoon. I had an almond frangipane tart & Caitlin had, well I think you can see what she had.

They do illy coffee too, which is always a winner for me.

So, we are officially the new owners of a cafe in Cambridge.

We started on Wednesday of last week and the place is already buzzing with lots of people.
The early starts are tough but we'll soon get used to it.

I thought I might use the blog to document the takeover and plot our progress as we set up our breakfast and lunch time delivery services to the Science Park & neighbouring sites.

This was how the front counter looked on Wednesday but already added a few new things with lots more to come.
