Guests and Donkeys and Horses

Our New Year's Eve guests kindly emailed us and this is what they said:
...thank you very much for everything, we all had a great time.
Thank you so much for letting us "take over your home!"  We felt more than welcome. 
I have attached some fotos that we took. 
We will defineteley recomend calpe mountain to all our friends! 
So thank you to Jason, Joanna, Pili and Remi we enjoyed having you to stay and seeing the New Year in with you.
Meanwhile the swimming pool is nearly finished and the courtyard has new paving half way through, getting ready for the coming season.  Many distractions stop us from getting on with the improvements, several friends call in with their friends nearly everyday, so it would be rude not to stop for a cup of tea and slice of Panetone.   Also there are always Peppa and Pere, our two naughty donkeys, to look after, not to mention Tim (our dog) and the cats.   Today has passed off like so many, breakfast on the beach followed by shopping, sometimes some business, then back to the farmhouse.  Fabulous winter weather for several weeks now, may give way to some welcome rain this week I'm told. Went to see a lovely horse this week who might just join our family too.....

First guests for the New Year

Our first four Bed and Breakfast guests arrived on New Year's Eve.   It was a perfect afternoon and the donkeys proved a great attraction, along with one of our cats, Amy, who decided that our guest's lap was the place to be in front of the fire for the evening!  A new patio heater made sure that the stars at mid-night could be enjoyed outside with champagne, grapes and warmth.  So that is how we saw the New Year in.  Welcome 2012. 

New Year's Day started warm and sunny with breakfast on the terrace and then a long quad ride for our four guests who returned to the finca around 7pm after a long day out exploring the Bernia mountain and one or two restaurants.

So we have began our New Year at the farm, as we mean to go on, with two donkeys, Pepa and Pere, our English setter, Timmy and the four rescue cats Amy, Elvis, Smudge and Tigger.   I think the list may be longer this time next year, four legged creatures seem destined to find us and stay, even when we aren't looking!

The finishing touches for the house include the swimming pool and courtyard surface which are half-finished.  I am looking forward to getting them both done over the next few weeks and then more photos will follow.   Wendy
