Romantic cottages for two in the Peak District

Monday Email and Weather Update

10.30am Disregard all below: we are back in email contact with a mass of delayed emails thronging in. How we do rely on technology these days, and how vulnerable when it breaks down.

What us more it has stopped snowing and the sun is shining. (The snow we love, it’s just a worry on changeover day.)

8.30am After all the excitements of the past few days, reality bites. We are out of email contact and the sun is not shining!

Firstly, we have an email crisis: our system has been down since just after 4pm yesterday, Sunday 28/11/2010.

Last night Demon was ‘working on the problem’ and this morning they still are. The Help Desk assured John a few minutes ago that they are near to success. How near is near? we wonder with some anxiety.

Please still use the telephone 01335 390 519 or my mobile which I will try to leave on a windowsill most likely to receive a signal, 07813 68 68 99. OR try emailing

Now for a weather update: A few minutes ago snow was falling but it didn’t last long so we think/hope it was a flurry rather than the beginning of another proper snowfall. Today’s guests should be fine, and don’t forget, if you don’t fancy the last slope we will come down and help you cart up your belongings and ensure you are safely and happily installed in your barn.
