Yesterday was a busy day for me. I seem to have run out of energy somehow and I was struggling by the end of the day.
Our B&B guests arrived quite late on Thursday night, due to a combination of delayed flight, misunderstanding over car hire booking, bus schedules and road closures for the racing. As a result, they didn't go out until midday on Friday so it was a rush for me to get the rooms cleaned, have a quick lunch then get to the gift shop for my afternoon shift. I had spent the morning getting a couple of loads of washing done and did some general cleaning and tidying.
There is always only one volunteer manning the shop at a time so during busy periods it can be quite hard work. Yesterday was a busy day with lots of visitors over for the Bank Holiday weekend. By the time I had closed the shop and cashed up there was just time to pop into the supermarket to stock up on more essentials for the B&B breakfast and get home to cook dinner.
After dinner I had to prepare the breakfast pack for our guests and deliver it to the annexe ready for the next morning so that they can help themselves.
Last night was the first time in ages that I slept through until 7 a.m. without waking several times.
I don't know how I would manage if I had to keep working until I reach state pension age.
