Tuesday 23 December

Another busy day with a lot to do. Up and Chris took dogs for walk while I sorted laundry out. Then went down to new Close Farm to pick meat up for next few days then down to Bakewell to get last few bits in. Was quite busy down town, especially in the Co-op. (Subsequently heard there had near riots earlier on as it had been so busy. Will investigate). Back and one cleaner to clean cottage vacated from yesterday for today’s arrivals. In fact two cottages in today, both arrived at same time although not together. Chris and I spent the afternoon tidying up the house and finishing the Xmas decorations. Also had our friends coming over from Chelmorton for a meal so I had a meal to cook too. First time we have been able to entertain friends in our house since stopping B&B. A nice evening was had by all!
