Christmas Diary: Day 10

3 January

Really stumped today when ten drummers rocked up. Have contacted brass bands in neighbouring villages and they’re eager to hold auditions.

Accommodation is the real problem. What is Rob thinking? That I live in a Tardis? He has reality issues.
Mum knows everyone in the village. Some may be willing to put up a couple until I think of a more permanent solution.

Charlie – Mum’s friend – to rescue again. Found artisan cheesemaker who’s keen to buy all milk the cows produce. Also helping transport swans to new home. Proving invaluable.

Geese very effective lout-deterrents. No trouble over New Year. Result!
