Saturday 18 August another busy Saturday

Donned the rain coat to take the dogs out. Rain was forecast but was still dry for departing guests. Six cottages out, five cottages in and one transfer so scheduling important. Also one B&B in and out. No time for extra jobs but one oven in need of cleaning. Cottages left tidy and most made a timely departure. No breakages reported or found. Even with a full compliment of cleaners the cleaning was not finished until 2pm – just when it started to rain and when the first guests arrived. They were understanding when I said the cottage was not ready and went for a drive arriving back just after three. Grabbed a slice of toast then checked cottages and B&B were ready for occupation. Next guests arrived just before 3pm and last ones arrived by 7pm. A real miserable evening (weather wise) so after the last guests arrived Chris went and got a pizza and I seemed to remember saying I’ll sit down but it was still 9pm before I turned off the light in reception.

Must not forget congratulations to Fay for getting her A level results. She has secured a place at Reading studying Food Technology.

No blog tomorrow as going to York to see some friends who have moved house and also visit Chris’s parents.
