Renovation project - Our last guests leave

Renovation project - Our last guests leave

This morning is quite emotional, we have had such a nice couple who have stayed with us for the past week, and today it is time to check out.

When guests stay for so long you get to know them quite well and they can become more like friends, we have enjoyed the company and have a shared a glass of wine each evening as we have chatted about the day and discussed the joys of living in Finistere.

But this morning it is a double whammy, they are leaving but this is the end of an era, we are not having any more guests it is our final room clean, in fact it is our final everything, all the signs are coming down today, the website is closing and we now realise we have less than a week to pack and clear the house.

This is it, everything we have worked at, everything we have achieved has culminated to this point, it is Goodbye to Huelgoat B&B, goodbye to all of our guests and a week to enjoy the house (or a week to go into a blind panic as we have to have it ship shape for the new owners)

Once the breakfast is cleared away and the signs are removed, it is a very strange feeling, I actually feel a little bit bereft, it is similar to when friends or family have visited and left, every where seems a little bit quiet and empty.

I am sure this feeling won't last for long, but at the moment it is there, as I sit and type and look around, I know there will be nobody to ask any questions, no towels to get ready, nothing to do (apart from pack the house!)

It is almost like leaving a part of your life behind, and if I feel like this now, how am I going to feel next week when we really do leave everything behind!

  1. End of an era indeed, good luck wherever you go.
    Now, like me, you'll have to find a new name for your blog :)

    1. Thanks David, the new name is going to be a big question, can't really stay as Jenny and John in France once we are in Spain, but have no idea how to change it :(

  2. Good luck for the future be it Spain or wherever
    I have enjoyed your reporting and your overcoming of adversity and your adventurous spirit.
    If Spain I hope you'll continue you're blogs and help us all share a little of your adventures.
    Best wishes to you both (you feel like family now)
    Regards

  4. It does sound sad. Within a few days you'll be getting excited about your new life (in Spain?). As John Swale says I hope you'll continue to blog about the next adventure.

    I do admire your courage and energy!
