Wednesday 9 April One of those days…

I just shouldn’t wake up and say today I am going to do this this & this because as usual a spanner gets thrown in the works. One cleaner up to do a cottage as guests in later today. It seemed to take forever to service the rooms and do the usual tasks. Then I get a phone call. One of my bookings for the B&B for the weekend is cancelling due to ‘family crisis’. I point out that under our terms and conditions we will have to charge if we cannot relet the room. We do advise guests to take out insurance to cover such eventualities but most don’t. This is the second cancellation in two weeks. So we went into ‘cancellation mode’ – updating websites where we have availability showing and putting a notice on our website. All this takes time so by the time we had lunch I really hadn’t done much. Did a bit of housework in the afternoon and a few odd jobs and the guests arrived mid afternoon. After dinner I collected Joanna and we went to the WI. This month it was a demo we like – a cooking demo. She did a curried tuna starter, chicken in cider, and an apple trifle pudding and the best bit is we get to sample the end results!
