Friday 31 October a non stop day

Up and after breakfasts said good bye to both B&B and four cottages. Two cleaners up this morning to turn cottages round. Did ironing for B&B’s then went down to Bakewell to get bits for the weekend. Got back as third cleaner arrived to do B&B’s. Grabbed a quick bite of lunch then just started checking cottages when first ones arrived just after 2pm. They amused themselves in the leisure area for a while while I finished doing the cottages. Having shown them in the next cottage arrived shortly afterwards. Did the final check on the B&B’s before the third cottage arrived after which the first B&B arrived. They have stayed in the cottages. Had time to pay the handyman who had been up today and chopping logs with Chris. Final cottage arrived, they are from Holland and were here earlier in the year, their daughter lives in Sheffield and the in laws were here in September. One of the cottages came over to ‘trick or treat’ by arrangement and then final B&B guests arrived. Phew! Cooked a dinner and did some bits ready for tomorrow. At 9pm some former guests called in to collect some belongings they left behind in the summer. They had hoped to call in earlier but got held up in traffic. We had a chat with them for a while then sat down to watch Heroes from last week!
