I arrived at the farmhouse for Tom and Claire's birthday party yesterday. It is a very nice place, bright and airy. The only slight disaster so far happened this morning when I try to get out of bed. I swung my legs around to sit on the edge of the bed and then the bed collapsed in the middle. Slats flew everywhere. As I struggled to get out of the well where the mattress had sunk through the gap even more slaps collapsed until one entire end of the mattress was lying on the floor. I just crawled out of the bedframe at this point and wandered downstairs to find coffee and breakfast. I have not ventured back up to the room yet to see how bad things are. I think there are some spare beds, we will have to see when everyone else has arrived today. Claire has headed off to collect some groceries she ordered. The others have headed off to go and explore a local stately home and Castle. I am currently here on my own enjoying the peace and quiet. I have to head off into Uttoxeter later on to get my tire fixed as I think I have slow puncture where it is leaking around the rim.
