This is the first year of Wimbledon Tennis being a week later – they changed the dates so as to give all the tennis players a longer rest between the Grand Slam tournaments of Paris Roland Gaross and Wimbledon.
Let’s hope, seeing as it is a week later, that the weather remains dry. I have so many one-nighters that I am beginning to feel like a Chinese laundry at the moment, I am constantly doing the washing and ironing.
This prompted me last night to look on the internet to find an alternative to having an extra pair of hands on an ad-hoc basis. I found the following companies that have been around a year or so and their prices are promising. I am going to give them a go. That’s the only thing I fall behind with is the laundry, everything else I can keep on top of.
I have decided after several years of resisting – to put hospitality trays in the rooms. I ordered everything yesterday, the trays, kettle, the tea, coffee, milk and sugar, which should all be arriving in the next day or so.
It was a very happy guest that triggered this action by saying:
“We loved everything about Parklands but we did miss making a cuppa at night and first thing in the morning!”
Always wanting to achieve excellence and happy guests this has been actioned.
We have added a new spread to our breakfast table. I found it in Borough Market – on a recent visit. It’s not as sweet as Nutella, it’s a darker chocolate and it’s absolutely divine. It is made in Croatia by a chocolatier and the main ingredients are hazelnuts and olive oil. Delicious on bread, brioche and croissants – you can buy it on Taste Croatia.
