Putting up the sign

Pictured above are Jane and David Wishart.  Our friend Marian, made our B  & B sign and David and Jane came to erect it. It does look a little like we live at Paddy & Olga's across the road!

Our guests are coming from "all over" including New Zealand, Australia, Austria, Italy, Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland, USA, France, Germany, Norway, Siri Lanka, and a good mix of guests from England and mainland Scotland.
My friend Marian & me are trying to learn how to play bridge, so Thursday means a big rush so I can have the afternoon free - we don't think we are improving much - need to play more.  Poor Doodie gets quite exasperated with us.

The first month

We had thought to ease ourselves slowly in to the B & B business, by taking a few guests in April - I took the first booking for the 9th April.
An Australian couple turned up at the door and became our first guests - Elizabeth and Glenn from Canberra were our first guinea-pigs.
Frances Hanmer,her mother - Jean, and Fran Walker were our first booked guests and are shown here getting the "tour " by Robbie.
