Saturday 8 September a good change over

Today was one of those Saturday change overs you wish for all the time. Most of the guests had gone by 9.30, most had stripped the beds and all were left clean and tidy. With eight cottages out and eight to come back in the cleaning was finished by 12.30 and even I was finished with plenty of time to spare. Chris did his weekly clean up of the courtyard and cut the grass. Guests came in at regular intervals from 3 – 6 pm with one couple due to arrive nearer midnight, but they are a part of a cottage already in so I dont have to worry. This week we have four cottages with returning guests, one of which we have become quite friendly with. After a dull start the sun came out as guests arrived and the forecast still looks good for the next few days. Lets hope they are right. We had a number of phonecalls looking for last minute availabilty.

A little catching up on accounts and sat down to Last Night of the Proms – a sign that summer is on the way out, along with the nights drawing in, daddy long legs…
