Re: What are people up to right now

Many thanks, was treated to lunch at the 3 A's by Maria. Not happy about the situation, a thick waitress that after 2 tries still could not get my drink correct, gave up then and also the chips were terrible, we both left half of ours. Going to put a moan on Tripadvisor. Ruined the treat. I suppose after going there for some 25 years plus, something like that was bound to happen.

Re: What are people up to right now

We went last week. Sad to say had similar experience. Treat for daughter -in-laws birthday wasn't a treat at all.

Went last Wednesday with several friends and everything was normal 3 A's. everything excellent. Something not right there. When I went to book todays table the male receptionist could not find me on the computer, it took him 5 minutes of trying to spell my name, eventually he found my details as when you book your details are logged for the future. Had to stop them sending me invites for New Year or Boxing Day hunt specials as I hate anything to do with blood sports.
Will be putting my comments on Tripadvisor tomorrow so it will be interesting to see if they reply or or comments. Also they seem now to be penny pinching by not putting tooth picks on the tables anymore.

Re: What are people up to right now

Cant put on Tripadvisor as apparently you cant put more than 1 comment a month on the same place so I have written to the manager for his comments.
Laurieloo what were your problems at the 3 Acres?
This is the first time of using them in 25 years plus I have had any cause for complaint

Re: What are people up to right now

Sorry Stoo only just noticed your post.
No major problems, just niggly little ones.
On arriving drinks orders were goofed somewhat... Pint of lager shandy was minus lemonade when it arrived , trivial but not for nominated driver who thankfully spotted. Diet coke came as full fat version , again trivial for the slimmer amongst us, but wouldn't have been so if she'd ordered because of sugar restricted dietary requirements.
And how much is their blessed mineral water ???? Resisting swearing at that one !! Exactly how can water be same price as wine ? Biblical thoughts of loaves and fishes.

Then, one of my pet hates, they failed to bring all our starters at same time. I'm one of those annoying people who refuses to start eating until everyone has their food in front of them. Their were 6 of us & twenty minute gap between first starters arriving to last one. First starters were taken back for reheating..

But. The meal was lovely, food as good as ever. Not sure we will be rushing back though

Re: What are people up to right now

Now awaiting the reply from the manager to my letter for his comments. Standards do seem to be slipping. Will post if he replies.

We have a campervan so it was a dawdling holiday, no set time or pace. I thought it was the right thing to do but it turned out hard work and a bit stressful for me.

The main thing is she enjoyed it but even now she is starting to forget some of the places we went and things we did. I think in future 4 or 5 night's away will be enough for us unless she gets worse, which is more than likely, don't know what will happen then, just have to take things as they come.

Weather was great, just one day of rain which was a relief to be honest. A lot of good scenery and camp sites so it wasn't all bad. Thanks for asking, looked like you had a good time in Scotland. We had a couple of weeks up there last year and again some good weather so can't moan to much can I...lol

Still bloody hard getting on this site, couldn't reply to you yesterday.

happy belated birthday xx sorry its late xx

and yes it does get harder .. the more memories you can stack up now comes in handy when it does get harder .. my mum had dementia and I was her carer till she died in 2006 ... but you do it because you love them .. and carry on doing it .. good luck xx

Re: What are people up to right now

Hi spooks.

Have finally got her on medication that she's not reacting too. Her 1st lot was in July, 2nd lot was start of September when we got back of the hol's so it feels a long time. Good thing is that she's looking better and eating a bit more, so positive things then.

Thanks for the birthday greetings.....but i've stopped counting, having got to many now

Re: What are people up to right now

I'm decorating the lounge.
Doggy window displays have been suspended as they have no way of getting in the window right now (and its full of decorating supplies).

I have finally connected up some sockets that I installed only 9 years ago.
