Yesterday really felt like spring, and all the bulbs are coming out in the garden, but today of course, we had more rain!! Jim is very busy on the farm, it's calving time, which means life is sometimes a little stressful! The Butcher's shop is nearly finished, and we are selling a lot of meat by mail order now, which is great (see www.stocktonandstratton.co.uk). Kids Corner(www.kidscorneronline.co.uk) has started it's spring campaign, and people are already looking to buy play equipment for their children for the summer. Mostly importantly, the Bed and Breakfast is starting to get very busy again, and I am really enjoying it! We have had such lovely people to stay (and long may that continue), and we are looking forwards very much to a busy year. I have been pursuaded to enter Churton Heath Farm Bed and Breakfast in the Visit Chester and Cheshire Best Bed and Breakfast category, which should be very interesting!!
