A busy day today with three cottages in. All had already been cleaned so it was just left to me to do the final checks. One needed a carpet cleaning but all done by lunchtime along with all the other chores. Progress is slow in Bluebell but it is getting there. Also we had the mower go for its annual service and after lunch a carpet salesman called in. We have ordered a 30 metre roll of carpet to replace some cottage carpeting. That will be with us by the beginning of February. First guests arrived about 3.30pm. They were here last as B&B guests. Paid this months bills before dinner. Second cottage arrived about 7pm with third cottage not here until nearly 10.30. They had had a long fraught journey! They are also here with us for four weeks.
