Friday 11 January

A busy day with a last minute booking for the vacant B&B room by a set of previous guests. Additionally two sets of guests were expected for the cottages. One cleaner up to turn round the two cottages. The morning went quickly and I went down town in the afternoon to get the B&B bits for the weekend. It was raining in Bakewell but on the way back it was sleeting here and according to the radio it was snowing in the high peak and soon it was snowing here too. The laundry man found it difficult to get up the drive but luckily the guests didn’t. The B&B guests arrived about 6pm with the first cottage guests about 6.30. It was still snowing but it was slushy . By the time the next guests arrived at bout 8.30 it had stopped snowing and by the time we went to bed it was melting.
