About time too, l might add!

Well about flippin' time too, l have a spare moment to float around in cyberland. Looking at my last posting date, l am am shocked at just how absent l have been. We have had Easter, albeit a wintry wonderland sort of easter, well to my mind, what can you expect when easter is propelled into March with no thought for day trippers or caravaners north of the Humber!

I feebly raise my hand and say l have been busy; we have manged to flog the stuff to a major multiple, now that has been an experience to put it mildly, the details of which l will not post up here! We have learnt over the past few years that early spring sees a trail of potential new customers heading this way looking for new products to sell, so this summer you will find mr moo's at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield. Phew, enjoy!

Easter? Well, what can l say..........yes it snowed and it was cold and it was very windy. Fortunately, the caravan parks were full over the bank holiday weekend so weekend visitors were about, it was the day trippers who stayed at home, put off, no doubt, by the dire weather warnings coming out of the Met Office! We did NOT have 10cm of snow l might add, just a brief dusting!

Our newest member of staff has just started [see photo right] and seems to be enjoying herself, always smiling as you can see. MK however is off, having passed his LGV he will be striding off into the sunset as a lorry, sorry truck driver, when he finds a job that is! The 'new' machinery is churning out a really super smooth creamy ice cream and the new flavours, crunchie cookie especially and the rhubarb and ginger are proving to be winners!

So what's next then? l have made the discovery that l have been blogging for about a year now, sad, starting out on the Country Living Site and then growing up into the proper world of blog, l have 'met' many new friends in the 'computer world' from all over the world [are there really that many sad gits out there?] and have not been shut down for inflammatory remarks! well there is time l suppose!

Here's to the next 12 months!



Good gracious woman, been so long I thought you'd absconded with an icecream cone salesman from Hull dear!! Great to hear the business is doing so well,staff certaunly look happy! Now about the export market..when can we expect Mr Moo's here?

Rhubarb and ginger sounds lovely.

Wow a major multiple - how exciting is that. Ooooo love the sound of rhubarb and Ginger but will have to be a virtual taster unless you are exporting to the highlands next.

Perhaps Mr Moo will come to Wales too.

Rhubarb and ginger sounds yummy - what about a very Yorkshire Rhubarb Crumble flavour?

So much for international understanding........
Congrats on your one year blogging, your major multiple, new flavours and new staff. Let's bring Mr Moo's to this side of the pond!
