O/T Please vote for me

As many of you are aware, I have a cake and dessert company and this keeps me busy in my Ďspareí time. Iíve been going for about 2Ĺ years and it looks as if Iíll break even this year (a very good thing!). As you can imagine, running a business can be very expensive and things do add up.

Iíve applied to a fund which is providing assistance to small business owners like me. In order to receive a grant (which I donít have to pay back, so excellent news there!), I have to have people vote for me and I need as many votes as pounds I request.

Iíve asked for £245 which will cover the costs of my upcoming wedding fayre, so all I need to do is find 245 people to vote for me! This is where you good people come in. If you could please follow the link below, sign-up (itís an amazing site, which I would recommend to anyone thinking of starting a business) and vote for me, Iíd really appreciate it.

If bribery helps, Iím attempting macarons, again, this weekend, so will bring some down to the Stoop tomorrow, so if you see me, come and ask for one.

I know that £245 doesnít sound like a vast sum of money, but covering the cost of the fair (as well as hopefully going towards a stall at a fair in the summer) will make a massive difference to me.

Thank you! (Sm13)

Done.
Good luck with the grant - I expect all the maccaroons will be gone by the time I get there tomorrow, but its always nice to be able to help a fellow multi-coloured one.

Thanks everyone!

Stooperman - I'm not known for my time-keeping on rugby days and if I make my seat before k/o I've done well! I'll probably head over to the Quins Head after the game, so please do come and say hello.

Thanks again everyone for this. It really is appreciated. (Sm13)

An appeal to everyone...

Poor Claire's in hospital. She needs all our help - just another 127 votes to make her target. Just follow the link in the first post of this string, and cast your vote please.

Thanks everyone. I'm feeling better today, though in stupid amounts of pain. I don't think I've ever sworn so much as I did yesterday!

It turns out my blender's quite sharp as I hit the bone! I'm on anti-biotics for the next 7 days and some very strong painkillers for the next few as well.

It was about time I'd had a cake-related accident I guess...

Hi everyone,

Desperate plea again! I'm 70 votes away from my target, so I'm getting there, but if you haven't voted, I'd really appreciate you taking the time to do so.

The Wedding Fayre is this weekend (it's at Quins actually, so I'm supporting the club!) and work is progressing steadily.

My finger is healing, slowly, though I'm still reliant on painkillers to get me through.

I have some very lovely friends who are helping out as I won't be able to do everything myself and I've learned over the last week that I'm not Superwoman and I can't do everything....

Anyway, thank you for your support and if you're getting married, come along to the Stoop on Sunday and say hello (Sm13)

If you have more than one email address I don't see why not. Also if your wife, families and friends also have email addresses...

I have promised cake the next time I'm at the Stoop, which I will bring (assuming I have no more 'accidents'!!).

Thank you so much everyone. (Sm13)

I went back for a check-up on Friday and it turns out that I managed to fracture my finger in addition to chipping the bone eye popping smiley That explains why I'm (still!) in ridiculous amounts of pain and I'm looking at least another 4 weeks for it to heal.

I'm pleading one last time for you good people to vote for me. I still need another 30 votes, so not many and it would be great if I could reach my target and have something to smile about.

Having the support of so many people means a lot to me, especially in the tough times (and right now feels like one of them!). It's easy to keep going when things are going well, but life isn't full of only good days.

Thank you again
