I've been loving the bits of decoration and buying all the bits for the holiday barns, can't wait until the plumber and electrician finishes, just a few days delay with this beautiful snow - which makes the farm look amazing. The lakes frozen over and you can see fox tracks over the snow covered lake. The Deers have been all over the place but the chickens hate it. I recon by the way we are whizzing ahead we'll be ready by Mid-March. Especially since the carpenters are nearly finished - all doors up, all skirting - just another varnish and its ready for the touch up and furniture.
Can't wait to get the first bookings. If your reading this and fancy booking, contact me with the code "Mums the Word" and I'll give you a great discount and the fist person in each barn gets a present and bottle of wine along with the usual sweets and welcome tray!!!
I had a guilt free Christmas eating Turkey while the Geese tapped on the dining room window requesting another bread throw!!! We had a few crusts left over from making the bread sauce - so they were happy.
It's all been go go go with the painting - both The Dairy and The Courtyard have been painted now with their theme colours, The Dairy is a romantic Retro Red to go with the Cream kitchen which has just gone in while The Courtyard is a georgeous zesty vibrant Lime. We are on the fast track to having them both ready by March - Can't wait.
Roll on a great year for Lodge Farm Holiday Barns - may some lovely people have some great breaks away and may we keep the sharks for the doors (Geese are fine but Sharks are a problem).
Happy New Year
