I'm still in business and it's growing well, although I still have not learnt the art of making money! Hopefully that'll come in time otherwise I think the missus will be pulling the plug on the whole thing!

Regarding the new premises it has been a real rollercoaster and continues to be so. Further to my last post I am now proceeding with trying to purchase the property as the vendors were not keen on renting at all in the end. So despite having agreed to purchasing quite a few months ago we're still in the process of trying to buy it!

It is taking forever and is a constant weight on my mind and even if I do successfully purchase it the stress will continue as it needs so much work and will be a money pit until the top two floors are converted to a two bedroom flat and the ground floor renovated to be suitable to run the shop from. Hope it's all worth it! I've already invested a couple of thousand in the survey and solicitors, even the "No use empty" loan will cost me £500 just to apply for it! I'm also selling my investment property to fund the project.....

Hopefully I'll have some positive news and some new and exciting pics for you all to look at soon. Thanks for asking ;)

Great news .

I sold my business last year , so havent visited the island in a while .

The only thing which would worry me with a grade 2 listing are all the restrictions to the building work . I would check with your local council and explain your plans for the building .
