A bitterly cold day. One cottage out and one cottage back in but this has already been cleaned. Down to Bakewell to get the paper and took bottles down as we had space in the car. When back finally put the last of the Xmas lights up in the loft. Had a few odd jobs to do in the vacant cottages and after lunch mainly jobs around the house and some personal jobs too. Guests arrived about 4pm. After cooking a roast dinner sat down for Larkrise to Candleford.
