Saturday 13 September

A fine Saturday – the first for weeks which helped with a busy day. Seven cottages out with seven back in and one staying for a second week. Moved new dining suite and sofa into respective cottages which meant moving other bits around A chance for the B&B guests to have a look at the cottages and also some cottage guests before they departed had a quick look in some of the other cottages. Two cleaners and Fay up but no problems encountered and cleaning finished by 1.30. Just having lunch when first guests arrived on the off chance that cottage was ready but I hadn’t done my checks so they went off for a while. Steady stream of guests arrived between 3 & 5 pm. At the end of the day there were five cottages with guests who have been before! Had probably last ice cream of the season but who knows! In the evening went round to Geoff & Margaret’s at Chelmorton for a meal. A very enjoyable evening and I managed to stay awake as usually on a busy Saturday I could quite easily go to bed at 9pm! Last Night of the Proms so summer over. Probably.
