For 2021 - online Python 3 training - see ((here)).

Our plans were to retire in summer 2020 and see the world, but Coronavirus has lead us into a lot of lockdown programming in Python 3 and PHP 7.
We can now offer tailored online training - small groups, real tutors - works really well for groups of 4 to 14 delegates. Anywhere in the world; course language English.

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python 2, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc.
POETS day at Well House Manor

It's POETS day - "Push off Early - Tomorrow's Saturday". No course, no events at the hotel. Sarah, who usually does the Friday morning shift, took the day as holiday and I stood in with a view to catching up on a few things I needed to do, expecting it to be quiet. I also decided to log comings and goings - a sort of sanity check for me to keep tabs on what goes on. And would you believe something every hour!

Illustration - Well House Manor as I arrived at 06:13 this morning.

06:15 - Graham in to prepare breakfast
07:10 to 07:30 - Three guests for breakfast
07:50 to 08:10 - Three guests checking out
08:30 - Rachel arrives to do an extra hour (help with a room changeover)
09:30 - Arron from another accommodation pops in to make contact
09:35 - Rachel leaves
10:00 - Paul drops in for the museum and to ask if we have old pictures of where he lives
11:00 - John drops in to discuss the rail meeting tonight and get some copies
12:50 - Ann and Breanda arrive to print the Villager
13:10 - Phil and Heather arrive to take over from me
13:30 - Blind man arrives (man to see Heather about blinds!)
14:00 - Two guests arrive for cream teas
15:30 - Lady from bank calls in for her appointment to see me
16:30 - First checkin of the day
17:25 - Second checkin
17:45 - Third checkin
17:55 - Villager team leave
18:00 - Fourth checkin

And in between that little lot, we've changed three rooms between us, ironed, taken phone calls and bookings. Now "just" waiting for the final checkin on a day when nothing was going to happen!
