One of the aspects of running a gîte, that we didn't really grasp before taking it on, is the obvious (in hindsight) fact that people come when they aren't working, i.e. at weekends or holiday times. And when most people who are not employed in the hospitality business are not working, most people employed in the hospitality business are up to their necks in it. Since most customers come for weekends, this fact tends to screw up our weekends.
Mostly this is not too much of a problem. So sometimes I miss performing at a concert, or I miss going to one from time to time. No big deal. But just occasionally something crops up that is significantly annoying to miss, to whit the invitation above, to an event where my fine nephew is marrying the equally fine lady who has borne him his equally fine daughter.
