Friday 19 October a busy day but where did it go?

You can get spoilt. It was just uplifting to see yet another glorious sunny start and the early morning sun was highlighting some lovely colours in the leaves. But to work…

An early breakfast and goodbye to the Swedes and Swiss. Altogether four cottages out with only one back in today, plus a B&B. New cleaner up again and a couple cottages cleaned. Went down town to return wheelchair and get provisions for weekend. Bakewell seemed relatively quiet – the calm before the storm -with half term next week the place will be busier.

Had lunch then finished packing for Chris’s parents before Chris took them back in afternoon. Took the advantage of a couple of empty cottages to clean a carpet and defrost a fridge. Interrupted a couple of times, one was to take a booking from one of the cottages who are leaving tomorrow and also my missing laundry was delivered just as I thought it would not be here.

The cottage turned up after 3 pm and the B&B just before 7 pm. Got some bits ready for tomorrow but could have done with a few more hours! Just sat down at 9 pm when the phone went…

Finally belated congratulations to one of my cleaners who gave birth to a baby boy yesterday.
