Sunday trading draws to a close & thankfully brings to an end the madness that is half term. The Gods have not been with us as far as the weather has been concerned. Cold squalls, sea fret & torrential downpours have greeted the holiday maker this year. Not good for the UK tourism industry. We have survived. It has been busy & what has been truly remarkable is that the visitors to the farm & ice cream parlour have been in good humour. Not too many unhappies which is a relief. l'm a firm believer that ice cream, no matter what the weather, makes you smile!
The new trickle of uni students are busy learning the art of coffee making & ice cream sundae scooping. We've 2 new ones, both guys, in fact most of our staff is male. l wonder if that is a trend for the 'new men'? Batista's & ice cream scoopers? It's funny how all the youngsters just love working here, it's almost like a 'club'. Loads of socialising whilst working hard & boy when the customers are queuing out of the door, they do work incredibly hard!
So June is now here. Don't you think that this year is positively flying past at break neck speed? l really don't know where the passing months have gone? I'm still on a high from my January holiday, well l can just about see my tan if l squint. In our farming life, the first week in June was always holiday time, once first cut silage & fertiliser had been spread on the grasses, now, holiday time no longer, we have to wait until September. My screen saver is set to slide show, so past holiday pics waft across when l'm stuck for words, luvely! Palm trees in February nothing like it!
