Friday 17 October

With no guests in had a little lie in before up and on with things. One cottage out and two cottages and both B&B back in. Chris took car to Sheldon for MOT and service and walked back taking some nice pictures of the Magpie Mine on the way back. Ironed and hung up the curtains I had washed yesterday. Chris and handyman replaced an oven in a cottage before guests arrived. One cleaner up, and in between ironing and laundry and checking on cottages, also did a bit of tidying up. First cottage guests arrived just before 3pm with the second cottage about 3.30pm. First B&B arrived about 4pm – they are off to Buxton to see a show this evening and final guests arrived about 7.30. Chris spent some time sorting out a computer problem for an Over Haddon resident and we sat down just after 9pm having phoned my dad and getting some bits ready for tomorrow.
