Hiya Linz - you were missed.

Hows Bump ?
- Heartburn?  Fluid on ankles? Too Damn Hot?  Forgetful?  Tired?
Can't stop cleaning everything?

I remember it with joy - should be really good at playing football in the tum by now -
I know youre going to be a great mum, and we are all looking forward to seeing the pictures when your baby arrives. 

11 Weeks - End of September - Good Luck - stay at home and keep well
Julie  ;D :D

Been a strange few day's, I had to expel a guest after many warnings about several incidents, I cannot go in to the ins and outs but he certainly has put me at risk.  >:(

One of my pet hates here is why do some guests walk out and leave the front door open? I now am contemplating CCTV and wounder if I can just have something on the front door? Last week I found a few people had just walked in!!!!!

I pride myself on being a good judge of charactor and know I have done the right thing but has anyone else had any horror stories about guests?

I think I nipped things in the bud but could have been in for a very bumpy ride as nearly everything I suspected appears to be accurate about the person!!!!!!

Anyway, advice on a cheap camera  that will connect to the computer if possible!!! Oh, and I got to keep three stars!!!

It seems that every day just now there is a rude prat of a person out there just waiting to be rude and obnoxious. I just had an American be rude because we were finished serving lunch and would not serve him - an hour after the kitchen closed. He then asked if he could eat sandwiches he had in the car on my picnic tables, I told him no and he said I was very unfriendly. I smiled and counted to a zillion....

When I went outside to collect empty glassed he announced at the top of his voice he would go and not return to this "terrible place", I just turned to him and said "just as well because you aren't welcome, now leave". The trouble is Sandy we are only have way through the busy summer season and very tired and needing a break!!!! I'd settle for a break of that dipsticks neck ha ha ha.

Strange  how some people have a job at seeing how rude they are, after all, it's us who can choose who or who not we serve!! I would have secrety wished for his car to break down ;D ;D ;D if only I could do spells!!!

My "wooden" draws, I should have said, and yes, they are full of cr**! (my other type are large but freshly washed) ::)

Had a man in this weekend who questioned the price!!! it is on our website and he Was told then he booked and when he payed he already had the correct amount!!! I spoke to him on the first morning and he walked out of the breakfast room and he called a male guest "Boy" on passing him and when steve spke to him he used the term "Boy" again!!  he was so arragant, his wife was lovely...poor women!! Thank goodness there are not many guests like him aaarrrrrrrrrrrhhh.....P.S just a few min after another guest gave us a £10 tip...so we had a take out tonight!!!!
