My social life has improved considerably since the weather picked up - I've even managed to meet up with two friends I'd not seen since last year - which is great. However, as a result of my various outings my housekeeping has become a bit... (ahem) lax, and piles of books, magazines, shoes, clothes and dishes have been appearing all over the place and growing at an alarming rate. So I've decided enough is enough (hubby had decided some time ago, but he's wise enough not to speak up about things that are out of his control) and have spent Sunday morning trying to restore some order.
So far I have (*with help from hubby):
Taken the rubbish and recycling out *
Finished the ironing
Changed our bedding
Done two loads of washing (more ironing to follow...)
Bought some flowers for the living room *
Prepared a chicken and potato casserole which is bubbling in the oven as we speak *
We're not even half of the way there, but at least the place now looks less like a tip and more like a home - and the flowers have added a nice splash of colour to our living room.
Not bad going for a Sunday morning, eh?
