The daffodils are coming out and the carpet of s...

I can’t quite believe it is almost Christmas.  Must be my age, but they do seem to be getting closer together. John installed new festive lights outside and Bleet Cottage looks wonderfully welcoming - several guests have remarked it looks like the film The Holiday. We have recently purchased small Kitchenaid kettles for the bedrooms which have been much admired by guests; a quality upgrade from th...
