Saturday 12 April

Another Saturday another big changeover. Three cottages out and four cottages and one BB back in. Two of the cottages and the B&B have been here before. Two cleaners up and during coffee it transpired it was the birthday of one of them, which was a coincidence as it also happens to be Chris’s birthday! Nevertheless work goes on and managed to defrost two fridges. With no problems encountered everything was completed on time. First guests arrived early at 2.30 but as their cottage was ready I showed them in. The next guests arrived at 3pm. It was then a few hours before the B&B and the remaining two cottages arrived in quick succession. It was even pleasant enough to have a cup of tea on the patio! After an early dinner we headed off to Sheffield, well Eccleshall Parish Church to be precise, to see the Spring Concert by the Baslow Choir. It is a lovely church, sympathetically modernised on the inside, either that or it was made to look old on the outside! At least it has comfortable seats! A good concert as usual.
