Today feels a little sad; the Christmas decorations are coming down which means it’s all over again for another year.
Christmas to most people means getting a nice long break from work, enjoying staying at home with the family, eating too much, playing games, watching re-runs of Only Fools and Horses and so on, but for those of us working in Hotels it’s very different, it’s our busiest time of year and so we work longer hours and therefore spend more time at the Hotel than we do at home.
Most people would think that this sounds horrendous but after 15 years I’ve come to love it and really wouldn’t have it any other way. I get to enjoy Christmas with hundreds of different people, many of whom I see every year at Christmas, an extended Beech Hill Christmas family. I get to enjoy the best Christmas day lunch (cooked by my favourite Chefs) with my family who come to stay at the Hotel for the three day break. I have New Years Eve with the friends that I have worked with for the past 7 years; glass of Champagne in hand and watching the fireworks over the Lake, rather than fighting the crowds in the pubs and clubs.
You see I really get the best of all worlds; great food, time with friends and family and free entertainment, without the boredom, the expense, the washing up and best of all no cutting pointless little crosses into the bottom of brussel sprouts! So to everyone who visited over the festive period, for Christmas parties, Christmas and New Year breaks, and getaways in between, thank you for making my Christmas extra special.
