Thursday 16 October

Up and after an early breakfast B&B guests departed as did one cottage. Went down to Bakewell as soon as I could so I had the rest of the day to get on with things. Back and after coffee one cleaner up. It was sunny but cool and I washed some curtains from the empty cottage putting them out to dry but after a few light showers decided it was easier to let them dry inside. Chris went out for another session of leaf blowing, the third time in five days, but no sooner had he finished then there were more on the ground! With no-one due in and with Chris at Over Haddon after lunch I spent some time in the garden before another shower came along. After dinner spent a little time on accounts – I want to try and keep up to date his quarter – and then sat down just after 9pm.
