Yesterday, demariana came over and helped me clean the dining room. The floor still needs mopping, and I wanna buy a tablecloth and placemats, but otherwise it's ready for the party, as soon as I put away my Christmas presents and the laptops that are in there.
The kitchen table has grown a life of its own, and I'm planning to avoid it and tackle the mound of laundry on the jacuzzi today. Then mopt the floor in there and generally get the room back in greeting order. After all, its the first space people usually see in the house.
The plumbers are coming after lunch today, and then I'll be able to tackle the dishbeasts. Maybe if the rest of the kitchen is clean, the table will lose some of its intimidation factor.
Seven minutes to dress and get the kids to school.
