Tuesday 19 August

Another wet start – heading for one of the wettest Augusts in recent years. After finished usual chores and dealt with a number of phone calls and emails went down to Bakewell for usual bits but forgot to go to the Bank! After lunch went to Buxton to look at some garden furniture in the sale as at least one set will need replacing at the end of the season. We also bought some other bits whilst there. Next set of B&B guests arrived mid afternoon. Also ordered a replacement set of linen for the cottages. This needs to be done every few years. Had a chat with a friend before dinner then watched the Olympic highlights. Haven’t Team GB done well so far! Watched the final program in the series Jimmy Doherty’s Farming Heros. Yes dairy farmers are more likely to have pictures of their cows on the wall than pictures of their families!
