  • So just when I thought I that I have been banging my head against a jackernut brickwall,
    a few good things came to light.
    Finally.
    Maybe this will work, I might actually pull this off.

    I am constantly feeling embarassed about my life.
    Most of my friends have jobs. Proper jobs.
    They work in top London banks,
    or as Lawyers,
    or as Teachers abroad,
    or are Chefs in exclusive restaurants.
    Do you know how small I feel when I am asked that awful question of,
    "so what do you do?"
    I sort of mumble that I have a flapjack business.
    But does it pay the bills? No.
    Do I have my own flat? No.
    Can I see a way out? Its dark and dismal.
    I often think maybe that I should pack it all in and conform with everyone else.
    That's the easy option, run of the mill, but I would hate Mondays.
    I hate people that hate Mondays. We have the freedom to choose a job we like. But most don't.
    Because it's harder. A lot harder.

    Anyway good things come in threes and they all came at once.

    I have secured a deal with an established organic Oat Farm to be the sole supplier of oats for jackernuts.

    I have found a manufacturer who is happy to make bulk orders of the charity jackernut (the RLSB want it as there consumer product for their 175 year anniversary) and will distribute them over the south east.

    I am developing a new Jackernuts range called Jackernuts-Sports aimed at athletes, personal trainers, gym bods which has been picked up by sports brand GB Nutrition and they have invited me to the opening of their new gym with an order of over 500 to promote Jackernuts-Sports and to stock them in the gym.

    I can't help but dance around my room as Tinie Tempah and "Written in the Stars" plays on Radio 1.
