I have recently come back from enjoying my family’s 2nd trip this year to Majorca! We had such a great time last time it made sense to go again and enjoy a last bit of sun before winter sets in here in the UK.
Like last time I joined my friends again for a day chartering a huge Sunseeker yacht which we took out around the bay before returning to Porto Patels for another evening of good food and entertainment. One of the best parts of the holiday this year was a large pirate show that took place on the outskirts of Magaluf believe it or not, it was a great show and we all loved it.
Also managed to bump into my old friend Jamie Redknapp who has a place out there and also Steve McManaman it was good to catch up and talk about times gone by.
Later in the evening my friend Josh and my family I drove into Magaluf and while my friends and family attended the pirate show my friend Josh and I got a real eye opener when we went to BCM square which has lots of shall we say ‘varied’ entertainment happening at night which we both enjoyed. When we drove back to Patels which was like returning to civilisation we had a few more beers and both went our separate ways.
Upon returning home it had become quite evident that I need to stop taking exotic holidays and knuckle down in the office as the finances aren’t what they used to be! The business has had to reduce its staffing numbers unfortunately but now I am flat out working 6 ½ days a week to get things back on track.
YBIS is still pushing into America, with the appointment of a new sales guy who works the evenings to fall in line with the American time difference. Oven King is heading in the right direction, we have now rolled out our 3rd and largest van on the road a big Sprinter van which is being used as a large advertising board and point of sale for local promotions and seems to be working well. Oven King now also diversified a bit and are now offering carpet cleaning services too. Oven king has now started launching our franchise opportunities nationwide.
For a bit of a laugh and to clear out some much needed space my wife, kids and I are doing a few local boot in the big sprinter van at the weekends, doubling up to promote oven king at the weekends. Last weekend however, our takings for the day were hindered by the bad weather, but we’d definitely do it again as it was a good day out with the kids.
