A bright start to the day and after breakfasts said goodbye to five departing cottages before taking the dogs for their walk. Two cleaners up and no problems encountered. Time for some extra jobs before first guests arrived just before 3pm. Four cottages in today of which three have been before. Next cottage arrived just before 4 pm and remaining two either side of 5pm. In the meantime sorted out laundry from today and also defrosted the fridge of the empty cottage. Spoke to my sister before dinner and sat down to watch the Timewatch programme about the early years of Queen Victoria.
