Since I last wrote, the weather has been kind to us. We have had some super sunny days along with, it must be said, some cold nights. We had a busy Sunday, for which the highlight was a group of 8 walkers who arrived 5 minutes before closing. By the sound of it, they had walked rather longer than intended and were tired, hungry and thirsty when they got to us. A few pots of tea later, and we were all enjoying moments of calm reflection on a fine sunny October evening.
It has been rather quiet since then: perhaps all the walkers go home once October comes, but we have still met some lovely people. On Monday we celebrated our wedding anniversary by taking ourselves off to a local eatery for a slap up meal where we met again a couple who had eaten their lunch in our restaurant! What are the chances. Yesterday I had my day off so got to play with my plants whilst Mike mended the lawn mower and mowed the lawn before fitting the grill to the kitchen extractor. Today Mike made some raised beds whilst I spent the morning priming the front door, and the afternoon reviewing our written procedures, to ensure we are doing what we say we will be doing in the kitchen. See – we know how to have fun.
The big news though is that we have made arrangements to host our first gig with a band featuring one of our near neighbours. On Saturday 26th November, local band Mouton will be playing a set in the late evening. Further details of the evening will be posted as soon as we work them out, but you can see further details about the band on Facebook at @MoutonNorthWales, or hear them playing at https://soundcloud.com/moutonnorthwales . Don’t forget to put the date in your diary!
