We managed to get the hot water working shortly after the last blog – and what a delight it was to have a beautifully deep bath again!
Which was really lucky, because we were permitted to open our rooms again from 13th July, providing we could offer room service for the breakfasts. Which we could – and even provide hot0 water too! It was a terrible shock to find we had got really rusty in the meantime – trying to remember what to do to get breakfasts ready, or change rooms, after months of building work was surprisingly tricky. We have got it sorted now, but earlier this week was a different story.
So the only building work this week was Mike installing an outdoor light.
It wasn’t even ours! Mike had promised some neighbours a while ago that he would replace their dodgy back door light, but we kept being rained off. Today, Mike left here about 3pm to fit it, knowing we were already prepared for the one set of guests booked in, whilst I did some ironing.
When he got back a bit after 4pm, we suddenly found both other floors had been booked for tonight so it was all hands to the pumps to get ready. I guess this means we might not be doing much building work in August – but we never know…
