Monday 17 March a busy Monday

A busy day ahead with five cottages out and five back in so two cleaners up but no problems encountered and cleaning was finished by 1.30 just as the first guests arrived. As I hadnt done my final check they agreed to come back later. While I was doing the final check I had a phone call from a family looking for a cottage for four nights so they came up and booked one of the spare cottages. So six in! Still for every good news there is bad news with one of my bookings for next week having to cancel due to bereavement. Although she has paid and has insurance I will try to relet the cottage and if I can I will reimburse her. The only fly in the ointment is the forecast looks a bit gloomy for the weekend. Anyway first two cottages were in by 3pm with one arriving about 3.30 and three about 4.30. Three of the cottages have been here before. After dinner Chris went to the Bakewell Photographic Club and I caught up with paper work until 9.45 when I sat down.
