Sadly, today the pub will not be opening on time at 12 noon. I have fed 6 hungry guests, started the dishes, cleared & cleaned the breakfast room, cleaned the pub & loos, stripped six beds and remade them completely (including two clean duvets and four clean pillows), started the laundry, ….
And now I’m sitting down before I start cleaning the four bathrooms.
J is away to Arran and Ardrossan on a business trip, so I’m on my own until 6pm tonight.
Edited to add:
I managed to open at 14.45, after a quick bite of lunch, then just sat for a while! I really ought to be a lot fitter than I am with all this climbing stairs and scrubbing bathrooms….
Total takings today £35. Not unusual for a Monday.
Oh, and before anyone jumps to conclusions: J does more than his fair share on the cleaning front on a normal day! The trip is all about providing ‘added value’ in your food service, and as he’s the expert on that, he’s away to find out what he can.
