In the past week I've taken bookings for a coach party in May, another in June and a 40-strong group visit for afternoon tea in September.
I've had to buy a diary for next year.
This has prompted me to scratch my head about what we should be doing for a] the Diamond Jubilee and b] the Olympics.
And we haven't even closed for the Winter yet.
Sunday was busier than Saturday. Much.
It was one of those perfect bright, crisp autumn days. It's rained ever since but it looks like it might dry up for the weekend. How lucky?
