Bed time. Our first guests of the year arrived this evening, a couple from Switzerland with a coulpe from Venzuela. Interesting mix but works for them. It's amazing how on edge we are before anyone arrives. The old paranoia kicks in hard and fast. What if they hate the place, find it too cold, too messy, what if they are in a foul mood, had a huge argument, have we done enough to make the place nice, will they be disappointed, will they hate us, what if they are petrified of dogs? Will they happy. Will we be happy?
Needless to say it all went fine. They love it here and despite the chill brought a couiple of bottles of wine out and watched the sun go down. It was a good'n too.
On we go. Big, BIG group arrives on Saturday - that's the real test.
End of 1st day's blogging. Not too painful. Wonder if I'll be able to keep it up.
