Leek Wednesday 25 February

Went to leek this morning with one of the cleaners. We went to look at some home furnishings for ideas in Wilkinsons and some of the other shops Leek has. It was also market day so we had a look around that too. Back after lunch in time for the arrival of two cottages. Both have dogs. We have quite a few guests arriving with dogs over the next few days. Dogs always welcome in our peak district cottages! Chris laid new carpet in another cottage today. In the evening we went to the Riverside Hotel in Ashford. They are among a number in Derbyshire operating special lunch & evening meal deals being promoted by national newspapers. We had a nice meal although the restaurant wasn’t busy, but talking to the staff it seems they have been busier at lunchtimes.
