Good nights sleep as always in a Travel Inn, just like the ad says, thanks Lenny! we set off for Salithwaite to have another look at the Fish & Chip shop. our heads have been buzzing since the last trip with ideas & possibilities. Met with the owner again & struck a deal agreeing to pay holding deposit on Monday when back in Scotland. this is it we are doing it! These premises apparently have a chipping machine that produces Crinkle Cut Chips, I’ve never seen that in a Fish & Chip shop before!

If we can produce this as a take away I’ll be very happy, better get Colin booked up on a Fish Fryers course!

It has an enclosed yard area for the dogs so we will know they are safe & not locked inside when we are working at the shop, plenty of space inside too, we can make it home. Contacted agents to say we want to go ahead.   Here comes mega amounts of form filling & outlay just to rent a home!.
