    I've just got back from holiday and my brain is really jumbled!!! I have three rounds one is my shops generally spread across there areas about 4 miles apart and usually do these on a Friday-Saturday. Other is local domestic consists of mainly large houses at high prices usually done Wednesday-Thursday and other is a compact regular round which I purchased from someone 3 years ago about 10 miles from my house all £10-£25 houses. My problem is now I've fallen behind and they are all overdue and everything is scrambling my brain badly!!! Lol I've got employees and can wiggle my way back to safety just wondering if any of you operate similarly or just have your work in one area and go round and round and round.

    There's no need to panic and play catch up, just go on as if you haven't been away. If someone says something just explain you've been away, everyone needs a holiday and they should understand. I've just been away and no one has said anything to me. Half your customers probably haven't even noticed

    Mine is slightly different in that it's all residential. But basically I do as above. Just carry on as if I've not been away.

    I would have done the shops first but as its Saturday you need to make the call if they will last without cleaning another day or two. Residential will carry on with where you left off.

    When I have a holiday say of 1 week, everything just gets pushed forward a week, so my 4 weekly customers go 5 weeks that time round.

    I just leave my 4 weeklys for 5 weeks as well. Sometimes move some work around to level it up. Sub off my weekly shops to a mate
