Well I surprised myself and got through an amazing amount of housework yesterday.
After getting the lounge sorted I went up to the attic intending just to tidy ready for Miss Doodle arriving for the weekend and ended up having a really good sort out. There were bags of stuff for the recycling bin, the burning bin and the charity shop. Christmas gifts were hidden in the blanket box away from little peepers and the wrapping station was finally sorted out.
It feels very strange up there as it's the tidiest and cleanest it's been for a good while.
Just need to pop the clean bedding on and we are done.
It was 8:30pm by the time I sat down last night and I ached like hell but was rather chuffed with meself.
When Ruby comes for the weekend there are no rules apart from she must clean her teeth and wash her face before bed no matter how tired she is but there will be late nights, popcorn on tap, a small amount of sweets and most likely one or two treats at the shops in town tomorrow.
Tonight we are all being treated to tea out courtesy of Aunty DD and we're off to Frankie & Benny's.
Tomorrow Ruby has requested Chinese and Sunday we are out for lunch so I get a weekend free of cooking apart from breakfasts and lunches. Can't turn my nose up at that...lol.
I am really ready to spend some quality time with me Doodle.....roll on 3:45pm.
Once this weekend is over I really must knuckle down and get the advent calendars sewn up. We have the little gifts for Ruby's and Marlowe will just get coins as she is too young for tiny toys. I will plan some simple meals to maximise the time I get at the sewing machine.
Feeding time for Andy shortly and as it is bitterly cold I think I'll do him the bacon and roasted tomatoes we didn't have last night.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
