Last year I decided to quit my predictable and safe job as both my mother and father were both diagnosed with different forms of cancer. I’d always wanted to have a go at running my own business so here was my opportunity.
After a bad day at work I thought that there must be more to life than printer cartridges, laptops and PC’s and I was right. There was a whole new exciting world that revolved around ice cream and the wedding industry that I knew absolutely nothing about…..and still don’t.
It’s been an interesting year to say the least. I’ve even rubbed shoulders with TV celebrities such as Tim the Chef and the Three Hungry Boys from River Cottage. Oh yeah, I hear you say in a disbelieving voice, here’s a rather fetching image of Tim with his eyes closed.
I’ve visited strange and far away places such as Tiverton, Holsworthy and Malmesbury. I’ve taken my trike to all manner of events; Weddings, Car Shows, Sports days, Open days, Music Festivals and carehomes to name a few. I’ve even made some great friends along the way, many of them virtual ones.
I’d like to think that I’ve made some sort of impact, I may not be the best ice cream tricycle service on the market but I’d like to think that I’m one of the interesting and memorable ones.
Got any feedback? I’d love to hear what you think, I won’t be offended……much.
