Saturday 15 November

A quieter day but a chance to catch up with some more odd jobs round the house and cottages. Two cottages out and two back in. My Saturday lady up to do the two cottages. Have also started to rearrange the house ‘post B&B’. First Saturday for a very long time when I haven’t had to get up to do B&B! After lunch Chris popped down to see Andrew. Both guests arrived at the same time at about 3.30, but as one had been here before they were able to settle in while I showed the other guests their cottage. Also did some more phone calls for dad. I have been pleasantly surprised at how helpful all the larger utilities/corporates have been, most have their own dedicated ‘probate team’ with direct numbers that you can call after the initial phone calls. Did some accounts and paper work until 6.30 after which I stopped to cook us a dinner.
