So the time has come....to get organised, with the building of a booking in/reception area. The idea of this area - within the cafe, don't worry, that's staying - is to keep the paperwork element of the workshop and customers all in one place....so much for the lie about offices being paperless by now!
It'll be in one piece by Christmas, but I think I'll be doing some holiday overtime to get it complete and decorated for the new year. So, in the meantime, pop in for a coffee and marvel at the stud walling, so to speak, whilst admiring the overflowing workshop. There's a rush to finish stuff for the holidays but it's creeping up on us waaay too quickly for my liking!

Many moons ago a naive 20 something opened a VW Specialist workshop in Cardiff due to the local market lacking the levels of care and passion for the older models. Years of hard dedication in the workshop and very little dedication to the day to day running of the business meant that when this 20 something finally had a daughter he felt he needed to go and work for someone else. That didn't work out, provided him with lots of "character-building" moments, and Body & Soul was born out of a yearning to return to what truly motivated the much older chap. As Mark Twain mused:
"Genius has no youth but starts with the ripeness of age & old experience"
