I always remember my sister retorting to a perceived put down ‘You know, I’m not as cabbage-looking as I’m green!’.
We’ll, I don’t know about cabbage looking but let’s hope the Inspector for the Green Tourism in Business thinks we’re at least a bit greenish.
As you know, we don’t want to become green bores and we are perfectly at ease with guests who don’t want to complicate their few days of peace and relaxation by having to worry about using green cones and compost bins. However, we have done what we can to make things work reasonably ‘greenly’ without too much effort on anyone’s part like low-energy bulbs, eco-kettles (will boil just one mug of water) and slow-cookers…
That’s all quite fun, in its way. the really tedious bit for us is some fairly demanding paperwork, providing records for the inspector of (weekly, I think!) water and power consumption.
Anyway, the big day is Friday 12th Feb. This is the very day Jason and Stuart, our faithful decorators, leave having redecorated both barns from top to toe (fortunately in Farrow & Ball paint, which is pretty acceptable, green-wise).
