I sauntered in yesterday, expecting a quiet-ish day.
50+ members of the Kerry (Wales) Silver Threads group arrived by coach at midday to see Witley Court and they came to us for coffee, cake and lunch. And then tea. They left at 4pm.
They formed a very orderly queue at the counter having parked five blue walking frames in the entrance. They also left a very lovely message in the visitors' book.
I went to collect my boys from football camp and suffered yet another flat tyre, ending up walking back to the tea rooms for the clearing up session.
And today my son becomes a teenager.
