Well, today marks the end of the longest period of visitors I have ever had. The first arrived in mid-June and the last yesterday. And now I’m back on my own. It’s been a great summer; I have loved the visits. Thank you all for coming. And thank you all those who made up for my laziness in the kitchen! Please come again.
Just to mark the end of the visiting season, it has just started to rain! It has of course been an extraordinary summer when, apart from some July thunderstorms, we have had about one day’s rain a month.
