I am so excited.
My brother, sister in law and new nephew are coming this Sunday. We are having an early Christmas and I can’t wait. I get baby cuddles and to see my family. This will be the third time since lock down I have seen them since our ominous friend COVID-19 locked down the world.
Tree has been up for ages.
Wreath is on the door.
Candles are everywhere ( out of reach of babies and dogs alike).
But my house is a tip. I have been tidying my dining room for 2 days now and tonight I need to finish. I can’t wait to dress the table and make it look festive. I made a big shop, so I have a small turkey defrosting in the fridge, a nut roast for my sister in law and lots and lots of veggies and booze ( for those of us who are drinking.)
We are going to call my mum and dad so they get to share this special day with us.
No presents. Just crackers a good meal and maybe a walk.
I have a lot to do in the next few days but the house will be spick and span.
We got our boosters this week, so other than a sore arm we are now happy with our thriple protection.
I will call my sister tonight and chat away with her why I finish the dining room. Tomorrow I need to mop and do the rest of the rooms and Saturday I have to pop all my craft bits up in the attic, which is not a fun job but at least I will get my steps in.
I have so much to do that I have had to sit down and write a list.
Planning is key to not leaving it to the last minute.
( yes that’s now) Thursday:
- Finish dining room
- Wipe spider away ( sorry)
- Hallway tidy
- Sitting room pictures away
- Christmas decorations box away
- Wash blanket
- Kitchen cupboard
- Tidy away booze
- Bathroom drying clothes away
- Cook sausage pie and cauliflower cheese
- Clean kitchen
- Set the table ( my favourite part)
Then Saturday night I get to relax, with a lie in on Sunday and then they arrive.
I am so excited.
I had to sit down and plan it all out because it’s lots of little bits. This is my initial one and I will write out a more in-depth one with more detail and time frames to make planning easier.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend too!
