On Thursday my son, Jake who is 18, had an interview at Gleneagles Hotel and Resort in Auchterarder. I had a lovely strong coffee in the bar while I waited, served by a delightful young woman. Jake is travelling to Australia in January, so he needs to save. This job will be perfect for him, and he can drive himself there in 20 minutes. Later we lingered in the beautiful gardens, and Jake took my photo beside the flowers because he said that I looked like a giant geranium. Jake received an email offering him the job in Accommodation Services, subject to good references. He knows the job will be hard work, but he’s not afraid of that. And he’s helped me a lot in this self-catering business for years. Wow, what a fantastic chance to work in the THE most famous hotel in the world.
As we drove back down the drive, Jake was drooling at the sight of the golf course
