What should you be doing when your house looks like this?
And your 'to-do' list is growing by the minute (I'm so overwhelmed at the moment I don't know where to start!) plus you are having a visitor to stay for the weekend?
Well if you are me you decide to do this.
Yes, you ignore the horrendous mess (and believe me upstairs was un-photographical!) and do something totally impractical and unimportant like putting up some hooks to hang tea cups on.
I've been dithering for ages as to whether I should hang some under the plate rack. So I took the bull by horns, so to speak, and did it.
I think I'm glad I did and am spending ridiculous amounts of time changing cups and the order of how they hang so as to get the full benefit of their beauty.
Alice was the first to arrive home from school later that day.
"Thank goodness you're here. Good day at school? Yup. Right, can you go and change the sheets in your bedroom, tidy it up, and hoover the stairs and see what else needs doing."
Yep, I'm very good at 2 things beginning with the letter 'D'....Distraction and Delegating!
