Warm sunshine = happy punters
Gosh it's been busy today. The afternoon sunshine has brought the public out in their droves. Queues at both counters, queues for outside tables, queues for loos. Busy, busy busy.
Yesterday's polo tournament was deemed a success by all who attended. Although it clashed with x-country day at Bramham, people were queuing to get in to the grounds armed with Bolly, smoked salmon & caviar. The press said that Jodie Kidd was there? The girls didn't recognize anyone at all, just loads of blokes who were 'really in love with themselves' with their heads stuck up various bodily orifices. Ah the wisdom of 16 year olds.....
Another strange or should l say embarrassing moment was when a customer informed us all, very nicely, that she was a regular reader if this blog & what was even nicer, felt as though she knew us all personally. It was either that or the member of staff had got crossed wires & mis-heard her saying that she had read about us in The Journal [a monthly broadsheet sized glossy mag distributed free to 'houses of distinction' in the East Riding. Could be a bit of a difference really!
Finally, just a quick note to add that l'll be away for a few days, heading south to see some friends. l guess it's what you would call a bit of an escape before the frenetic months ahead to recharge batteries & smooth furrowed brows. No it's not botox.... yet!!
Have fun & catch up later in the week!!
