Lovely B and B

I think "Bed-and-Breakfast Tester" is a job I'd be prepared to take on.

On our way home to Leeds, through the Cotswolds, Silverback and I stayed at Ham Hill Farm.

It was along a pretty country lane, near Cheltenham.

Here's the view:

It was clean, spacious and Annie, who welcomed us, was friendly and clearly knew all about how to run a good bed-and-breakfast.

Talking of breakfast, here it is:

That was the help-yourself part: cereal and lots of fruit ("I grew these greengages myself"). Then you could have a full cooked breakfast or - in my case - porridge.

Grateful thanks to Silverback who found this place! Really lovely and not expensive either. A good bed-and-breakfast place is a wonderful thing.

For a number of years, I had to book about 300 bed-and-breakfasts twice a year for our actors. The actors were often travelling from other venues and hence couldn't arrive until quite late.

And thus it was that I arrived at the following truth.

There are surely not many people in Great Britain who go to bed at nine o'clock every night.
How strange it is, therefore, that all the ones who do go to bed at this time have chosen to run bed-and-breakfasts.

Strange how there's a sheep on the Ham Hill Farm sign. Surely it should be a pig which would also symbolise the appetite of your average bed and breakfaster.

YP: you need to revise your history/geography/biology

Cotswolds = wool = sheep

Lucy - Ham is a pig product.

Pig = Abattoir = Chops (pork), sausages, bacon and HAM!

Have a nice day!
