JakeB working hard
It’s all confirmed for Boxing Day now. The family will descend. 12 people and 2 dogs. I’m not sure where we will put them, especially as the tree will knock out one of our seating corners.
Anyhow, the main thing is to get the upstairs rooms spick and span. At the moment, we have no curtains and 1 yr-old bird shit on the window of one room (I was hoping that the rain would wash it off), and granny curtains in the other. I’m not bothered, but one of my local relatives is well-known for their tittle-tattle (sorry, but it’s true). Luckily, the downstairs is perfectly presentable.
So, we have 2 weeks to:
Order and install blinds for two windows
Paint one wall
Buy swanky throws and cushions
Hide the crap
Buy and decorate the tree
Adorn the table with festive accoutrements
I ws hoping this Xmas would be reasonably relaxed. Yes, well…
