I don’t know what was the saddest, seeing the Belgian Café closed today or watching its slow demise. It once was our favourite place to go in evening. Often sketched there taken photos and so on, here is link http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/search?q=belgian
Being in business I am only too aware of how tenuous a thing it is, how difficult it is to build up and how easily it collapses. The margin between the money coming in and going out gets trickier to keep as the years go by.
The first time I set up and opened a bookshop from scratch was in 1978 and it was so much easier then.
I did my best with the response to the Manston DCO consultation today, this was made much more difficult because of the rsp website being dysfunctional
I think the rest are pretty obvious, this is the donkey stand at Newgate gapway in 1887
workwise the bookshop was pretty busy as it has been throughout this year, this is the link to the books that went out today
Food in The Pav Wetherspoons tonight, which was busy as usual
I even got out for a short walk at lunchtime today, Ramsgate as you see being Ramsgate
