Wednesday 17 September

Up and no breakfasts to cook! One cleaner up to turn room round from yesterdays departing guests. Both rooms back in today. Went to Buxton and had a quick walk round before returning home via Morrisons. By time put shopping away, checked rooms and phoned a friend, the first of the guests arrived. Another early dinner, this time so Chris could go and sort someones new computer out. Second set of guests arrived about 6.30pm. While he was out Geoff called in, he was also after Chris’s knowledge – Chris is in demand for his technical expertise lately! With Chris out also did his usual eveing chores. Strange utting the chickens away in the dark. The air had a real autumnal smell to it. After an evening of interruptions did not sit down until 9.30pm.
