One of the best things about our Bed & Breakfast is that we have had many guests stay with us many times. Perhaps they really do like DIY? Our guests have never flinched when pressed to write a lovely note of thanks prior to the release of their belongings upon departure. I particularly favored ''the sausages were okay'' entry. And most have been delighted to smile for the B&B guest photo album. Those that did not smile willingly had their bags searched. Twice.
Another fantastic part about our Bed & Breakfast is that we have had guests that have become friends. I mean the sort of friends that you invite over and when they leave they are not clutching onto their wallets or twisting their faces into sour expressions saying silly things like, ''you call THIS a B&B?''
Our guests - our friends - gathered in our garden yesterday for an afternoon of fun and games and food. I didn't take many photos or conduct any strip searches. These folks ''passed'' all that business a long time ago. Copies of their passports have been secured.
Good news of the day: We may have figured out who pinched John and Anne's apple tree. I'm not saying WHO, but, um - Robin, you may want to count your trees next time you're here.
Who is going to host the next Garden Party?

After breakfast Sunday morning, we left our guests on their own. Of course we left them clear and simple instructions...
Feed the cat
Lock the doors
Turn off the lights
oh! Help yourselves to lunch and dinner and snacks today, breakfast and lunch tomorrow...
Feed the cat
Wash the dishes
Take out the garbage
oh! We may need a few groceries, if you're out, and it's not too much trouble:
cat food milk eggs butter coffee juice a few cat toys would be nice tea bread baguette jam potatoes onions lettuce fish lamb chicken and some of those trés chic treats for the cat
oh! We may be very tired upon our return, we may just collapse into bed, so, after you have made your bed, done the dishes, cleaned the house, put away the shopping, will you feed the cat?
Thanks...and remember, leave payment for the B&B in cash.
HA! Whoever said a B&B was a lot of work? Hey!!! Where's the cat?!
