The advantage of owning a holiday cottage which we also get chance to stay at, is that we get to know people in the area. Sunday turned out to be a social day, all the neighbours were around, so much catching up and drinking of tea was done.
The disadvantage of owning a holiday cottage is that jobs always need doing. Our guests are great at doing their washing up, but we took the opportunity to wash all the kitchen stuff (and when you have a well stocked kitchen, that is a lot of stuff).
Of course, we celebrated our hard working by going to the pub in the evening for a well deserved meal.
