lorraine has been busy in the tea room today and she has called on either joyce or myself to help her out at busier times as charlotte and denise have been putting the finishing touches to the boats that are going out tomorrow, lorraine will "ping" them tomorrow (that means you can bounce a 10p piece off them.....ha ha.....we call her mrs ping). they have also been getting wharf cottage ready for a b and b tomorrow night for 1 person and then we will have to get it ready for a short break on monday............ooooops not we, they....i am on holiday ;)
