I don't have three different (sets of) guests within one and the same week very often. And it was almost four! But one found an empty house to stay in. And it was lovely to have so many, but there was an interesting trend among them. We're several years after the financial crash, but its effects have anything but faded away. All three had been made redundant in the recent past. One was still looking for a new job, one had just been offered a new one, and one had only just heard he would be redundant and still had some months to go before he would actually be out of work. It's not just me who has employment on their mind! The crisis is still very close. And it will work out for all my guests I'm sure. But these are not times to relax!
