Welcome to the Tales of a Kitchen Witch Blog.
If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you probably know that my husband is a truck driver. He has been doing it for four years and is, in fact, a very good truck driver. He has been a driver trainer for several years and this past winter he got awarded “driver of the month”. Even though he is good at his job, and likes what he does, he hates being away from us. We moved to Missouri so we could see him more frequently,but he is still gone from home far too often.
Last month I went to an English pub for “Moms Night Out” with the women in my homeschool group. It was such a nice place, I took James there the following week! The owner came to chat with us after our meal, and was delighted to find out that James was English and spent twenty years in the hospitality industry. He used to run/own pubs, managed a couple places, ran functions, etc and misses doing it very much. We have talked several times about perhaps opening our own place someday.
James and the owner chatted back and forth over the next few weeks and…..
Tonight James became the general manager of the pub (which hopes to expand to other venues in the near future)……… The cool thing is that this place fits right into our own beliefs and lifestyle. They are into sustainable, organic and local food! We are very excited!
My husband gets to be home every single day and gets to have a job that he loves.
I am so very happy about this new chapter in our lives!
