So, I did in the end get dressed, mostly because I was cold. Plus I’d split broccoli & Stilton soup on my dressing gown and I was starting to look like an extra from Shameless. I did however manage to stay in it until 2pm, so that’s good going. (I haven’t brushed my hair though, so the slovenliness is continuing.)
It occurred to me this morning as I caught up with everyone’s blogs, that all of your photos always look lovely. I try and arrange my photos to look lovely but they’re carefully taken… I am sure that you all live in houses that are tidy, clean, full of tasteful well placed crafts, and probably smell delicious too. Unlike my house, which while mostly clean and occasionally tidy, always teeters on the edge of chaos. I think this is because while we like it tidy, neither of us are neat people; we’re both busy with full time jobs, and serious extra curricular stuff, when we get in we want to knit (me) or watch football/TV (him). Our present keeping the house clean and tidy system is to have a list of jobs that need to be done and we both have to tick one off on our days off. I haven’t done mine yet 😄 though I have done some washing. So, in a spirit of honesty here’s the table beside the sofa that I use…
Yes, that is the ironing pile in the background. The ironing is the husband’s job alongside the washing up. (I do the cooking and the garden.) One of his more annoying habits is to bring it downstairs, sort it out and then leave it for days, or until I take it back upstairs.
I’ve spent all day crocheting the border onto my CAL blanket. Mollie was keen to help… and sat on the bag with the blanket balanced on top, so it all fell on top of her. It’s now covered in dog hair and as you can see from her face, she is feeling very put upon.
And Strictly is back on again tonight!
