I can't remember if I ever posted this on my blog. It's on my wonderful digital photo frame and always catches my eye when it comes on.
What a busy day!! This morning, I was sitting around on the sofa with a coffee and contemplating nothing more strenuous that a bit of very light housework when I had a phone call from my lovely friend CH who was going to Chester and wanted to pop in and see me on her way back. Well, I was really delighted but the house was not fit to receive visitors so I did some frantic tidying and cleaning. The girls' bathroom which is also our main bathroom was particularily disgusting so I cleaned it very thoroughly and also tidied the linen cupboard; chucking out a load of disgusting old "dog towels" lurking in there from Charlie days!
And after all that she didn't ACTUALLY use the loo!!
In days gone by when we had a freestanding cooker instead of a built-in one, I used to have these stupid compulsions to clean behind the cooker whenever we had visitors. I think I'm mad, really.
I rushed off to RDA then on my way back remembered I had to make biscuits for our work Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday. I was midway through mixing these when CH arrived. We had a lovely natter over a cup of tea but all too soon I had to go to collect S from hockey practice and she left to avoid the rush hour. I hope she comes again for a proper visit as I didn't get a chance to show her the garden or anything. At least she finally met Basil and Shea.
I am at work the next three days, worse luck :(
