Weekend Starts Here


We've worked today, but it's been a wonderfully straightforward day...

Our first B&B guests cancelled their stay with us - due to the weather... Luckily, we still got paid, so nevermind & it means I get to go out instead, as tonight Sime's off to the most westerly village in mainland Britain - where The Dolphins Fly have a gig...

We've also got 2 days off - which is nice!

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend.

Hope you have a lovely weekend. Shame your guests felt the need to cancel, but if you get paid anyway, sounds like the best of both worlds. Let's hope the weather cheers up soon.
Hope you enjoy the bank holiday...I was going to go to a Greenman festival but it's been cancelled due to the weather! Oh well, watching DVDs in my PJs it is then!

Thanks Catherine - We get May Day Bank Holiday on the first Monday in May. Not that it makes much difference to us, but we're not working today anyway - which is very nice!
Thanks Mrs Thrifty - Hope you're having a good weekend too!

Thanks Molly - We always enjoy our days off, especially when there's more than one!

Thanks Annmarie - we go through a company who pay us in full if folks cancel within a month - so we're happy about that!

So what is the most westerly town in England? St Levan?

Hope the band played well. What a treat to get paid and have some lovely time off.

Good for you!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 
It's also very rare!
But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...
Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub! There were certainly a few characters around.  Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!
There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!
The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them. Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...  I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be!  Here's a video of them performing California from last night.


Bye for now. …

Lights Out!

Just 4 weeks to go until this year's Earth Hour.
Here's the link to join in: Sign Up For Earth Hour.
We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?
