Talk about speaking too soon – my last weblog celebrated the sun shining on the righteous (we live in hope) yet it seems I opened my mouth too soon by at least a week if not by the proverbial ‘long way’. This week has been absolutely dismal and the forecast for tomorrow is looking a touch concerning for anyone who doesn’t have webbed feet.

It’s been a good week thus far, all things considered and today, I met with a nice man who works for a rather large supermarket and who has the potential to be a very nice man. Buyers aren’t all bad you know and sometimes you have to trust your instincts and speak from your heart. Only time will tell if we get a listing with the company in question, however, it still feels completely liberating to come out of a meeting knowing I’d given something my honest best shot, and seen a buyer smile in the process.

Can’t forecast the future too specifically; nonetheless, we remain eternal optimists and preparations are well underway for Hagar and I to travel off to the Wokingham Food & Drink Festival from tomorrow, while our wonderful friends in the ChickPea Charriot are taking their Aquapax off to visit Camp Bestival on ye magical Isle of White.

Irrespective of the weather, there’s always someone to talk to and engage with as we continue our revolutionary quest to change the bottled water market, with or without the supermarkets in support.

Besides those people we meet who have real ecological passion, there are always more than enough folk looking for freebies – some of whom delight in tasting things they already know they’re never ever going to buy. If you’re in the neighbourhood, why not come on down, as some cheesy game show host once said. We’re not too cheesy and we would relish your company.

ps. for those loyal customers who keep me smiling, I’ll be doing a tasting at Fresh and Wild in Clapham on Friday, in case you can’t make it along over the weekend. 🙂
