Eleanor - thank you for the compliments regarding the set-up of the house. I was reminded just how many toys, games, kitchen equipment etc that I provide to my guests when moving back in after your stay as I had to spend rather a long time collecting things from odd corners all around the house and garden! Talking of which, apologies for the very unseasonal rain we had in August this year. Although I sprayed the grounds every two weeks over the summer with weedkiller and mowed the lawns on the morning you arrived, there was unfortunately nothing I could do stop them growing while you were here. Also, my changeover team and I assiduously cleaned the house before your arrival and it was deep cleaned (to old toothbrush level!) before my short 8-week season started, along with painting and other maintenance. I took three weeks off work to help do this! I am actually rather pedantic when it comes to cleaning, which is why I form part of the cleaning team on changeover days. I really cannot understand what may have been unsatisfactory inside the house. I also remember going out of my way to respond to each and every one of your demands whilst here. I am also dismayed that you have not mentioned that I gave a family of four in your party a free night in the gite next door in which we live in the summer (worth over 200?) when we moved back in to the house, happily ensuring that we moved our personal affairs entirely out of the gite and cleaning it thoroughly, when we could have left that for a few days, especially considering the cleaning job we had on our hands when moving back into the house. That was a long day! This was my third summer of renting and I have had nothing but wonderful, wonderful guests. It's been a true pleasure meeting them all. But I suppose I was due 'that one'! Oh well, onwards and upwards! Now, back to Hoovering behind those radiators...!
