Well that’s the second day of the May bank holiday out of the way and I must admit it was as uninspiring as the first.
It felt cold, it was dull and dismal, the only saving grace was we had no rain.
Did a few tickets but nothing like I would hope to do on a holiday weekend. The shop was steady but that was all coffee and tea’s so not high value items, though of course high profit so that was the only saving grace.
One thing the dull weather does tend to keep at bay and that’s the idiots, they seem to like it brighter and warmer.
Trains were quiet and the steam service almost ran to time. We closed on the last but one service simply because Sue and I had had enough and from the rate of business it was costing more to keep the fan heaters on and the urn than we were putting in the till.
Tomorrow looks no better to be honest with more of the same and on some forecasts intermittent heavy rain as well. Time to take the laptop and get some work done I think in between customers and trains.
I always try to be positive in most things I do, but today I can’t think of one positive point to the day except perhaps we came home.
Let us see what tomorrow brings, but I am not holding my breath that it will be anything better than the last two days.
