Friday 25 January a busy Friday

More out than in but a busy day nonetheless. A milder but still bright day. Out today were three cottages plus one who were booked in until tomorrow but decided to leave today plus a B&B. In today were two cottages and a B&B. Still two cleaners up as I want to keep on top of cleaning for next week as well as making sure any other jobs are done. One of the cottages took longer to clean, mainly because the oven was left in a bit of a state. Got it done in the end. Sometimes I really feel like charging guests for extra cleaning – we say we can in certain circumstances but perhaps we should in any circumstance. Chris finished laying the lino in one cottage and started another as it was not booked for the weekend. The handyman also came up and did some odd jobs that are starting to accumulate. First guests arrived at 3pm with the B&B guests arriving about 6pm. The final cottage guests arrived about 8pm having had to negotiate the M25, M1 and roadworks at the bottom of the road in Bakewell. Sat down just before 9pm.
