A dull start today with better weather forecast. Three of our peak district cottages out with three back in and two cleaners up to turn cottages around. One dead toaster (always have a spare in stock) the major casualty but no problems encountered with cleaning. As a result had time to do some bits and pieces before first guests arrived about 4pm. This is a friend of mine who I worked with many years ago and this is her second visit with her family. Second cottage arrived about half an hour later. They have been here many times before. Final cottage arrived about 5.30. I think it will be one of those weeks where guests will be chatting to each other, especially if the weather holds. The sun came out mid afternoon and it was pleasant enough for guests to sit outside for a while. I chatted to some of the guests when I went out into the coutyard. Chris took advantage of the weather and cut the lawns. The dogs have got some new playmates and there are some children of similar ages in this week so it will be interesting to see if they team up. Cooked a roast dinner and switched off office light about 7.30. A few jobs around the house then sat down to watch the recorded Dr Who, very enjoyable.
