Good Morning World and Every-One!
Well it has been a really long week already and to be honest , it has been a super difficult few days! If you ever met him , then you would know what an incredible man he was. Yes WAS , which is actually such a hard thing to say out loud or even type. Saturday Night we lost Dave Beetar the Principal of Merchiston Prep School who had the biggest heart and even bigger LOVE for his School ,Staff and Pupils.. I will not type all the amazing attributes he has here , because there isn’t enough time or space! Click this link and view the Video we made as a family paying our Respect & Tribute to an incredible man who impacted our lives in the short time we knew him of 3 years! Also sending love and pray to all the other families that have lost loved ones to this pandemic. A very good friend lost her Dad the same day , her parents were married 49 years! Listening and chatting to her has been so hard and I cannot even imagine how they are coping as a family..Sending so much love!
BUT I do have some super exciting News when it comes to Cafe Couch! I have met an incredible Young woman who is driven and just as passionate about helping small , local businesses grow as I am!

So to all the Moms , Parents and Businesses out there , we pray that we will all get through this Pandemic , as I know so many Industry’s are suffering because of the lockdown restrictions and how Covid has impacted our businesses and lives!
