We had a brand new electric cooker fitted in the cottage today. The old one died last Sunday - typically on a Bank holiday Weekend. Coupled with the fact that it's not easy to get next day delivery in Whitby, today was the earliest I could get a replacement.

The cooker arrived at 8.15 am, the electrician at 10.30 a.m. - job done by 11.00 a.m. Well done everyone.

Apologies to the visitors over the weekend who had to manage with just the microwave.

The cottage bedrooms are quite small and we've had to be creative with the furniture. We've had requests for chairs in the bedrooms but space doesn't really allow, especially when families come with travel cots, etc. So we've added 2 fold-away chairs to be stored in the walk-in wardrobe. They are versatile and can be used in the bedrooms or bathroom as needed. Hope they prove successful.

This is the view from the cottage window. Shows the garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Wish you were here!

There's a nip in the air in the early mornings - a sign of autumn. Other signs around the garden are the apples ripening on the tree; the conkers growing and ripening ready to fall; this fir tree is laden down with fir cones - they make good Christmas decorations; and the flowers are changing to seed heads ready to scatter and grow on as next year's plants.

The ducks haven't been around so much this summer. Their route from the river into the garden has been blocked by the bridge repair scaffolding and they are having to find different ways up the river bank. No doubt they'll be back in force once the scaffolding goes - better stock up on bird seed!!

It's time to cut the grass in the wild life area. This is done just once a year after the wild flowers have seeded ready for next year. If not managed the area would go back to waste scrub land. The area always looks bigger after the grass has been cut!
