Wake Up And Smell The Coffee

Hmmmmmmm coffeeeeee!!!!

The Plumsteadshire rejuvenation masterplan has started. I see a billiant little deli with chairs and tables outside and handpainted signage (none of that new fangled backlit perspex rubbish). A fish-monger selling fresh swimming things bought early in the morning from Billingsgate. Said fish-monger would wear a straw boater, rosy cheeks and huge sideburns (this would apply if our fish monger is a lady too). A wet fish shop was trialed in our parish only a few years ago, but had nothing to sell me. We won't make this mistake again.

I see a community in full swing. We'll pass each other in the street and doff our hats and lay down our capes for genteel ladies.

One step at a time, I know, so a deli would be an excellent start. I'm there already.

"Four hundred grammes of thickly sliced chorizo please squire."

I've just been alerted to your blog. Great! There are more like-minded people living in Plumstead than I had realised. I'm a fairly new resident so this makes me very happy. Thanks for all the interesting comments. They've really cheered me up. And let's hope some enterprising entrepreneur with a bit of capital will take charge of THE SHIP and turn it into the gastro-pub that we all yearn for.

A new bar and a deli??! I think I would cry with happiness. Sadly having just bought a new house and car and having no investment capital (or any idea of how to run a business) I can't buy anything but I can and will support any new eating and drinking establishment (not BDR) in the area
