I have spent a lot of time today decrapifying the office. I am proud of me - yet one would look and ask what I had done. I shredded a lot of stuff, filed bank statements in prep for doing taxes. Getting it in gear so I can get the Christmas tree up.  Back to the fray tomorrow. I may even get it so a person can sit in here again!!!

I put new lights on my outdoor tree display yesterday and we managed to get it hung on the front porch - all by ourselves, another gold star on my forehead as we are two fumbling old geezers. I even remembered to plug it in when it got dark. the wreaths are hung - we are begining to look a lot like Christmas.....

My trouble is I have marketing stuff pilling up everywhere that I have say written a ,mailing but it isn't to go out till the 1st of Jan so in trying to be more organised my lounge looks like a bomb has hit it. I am currently working on an event for November as I am determined to get more exhibitors in this year as they stay longer ie less check in's and less changes and therefore more life and as well saves money as less laundry, paying the chamber maid and if I can get them to book directly it saves me commission and as my VAT tax is on turn over it reduces that without reducing profit (ie the tax man doesn't care it goes straight back out as commission) 

Trouble is when it is busy it is tempting just to just let the bookings come through the computer and just set a few restrictions but I am grabbing the nettel! Also been setting up offers for Jan and Feb when we are quiet here.

So yes I think 2012 will be interesting so am doing my best to make money where I can.

I was just looking through the cabinet over the double oven for some regifting items for the girls youth group white elephant gift exchange and did one of those "hm better get to this one soon!"  I need to, I never use that cabinet, it is the junk depository.

Every year I empty the huge closet in my bedroom and every year it is full again of 'projects' I have to get to. Like all the throw pillows I threw in the laundry that came apart at the seams. I'm getting a large cupboard for the hallway so I can keep this kind of stuff in the inn and out of my bedroom!
