House viewing Monday

at 4pm. Please cross everything.

Foolishly I spent two days washing every scrap so that there wasn't a big heap of clean on the sofa awaiting folding, and nothing draped all over the radiators and then yesterday sent the kids up to tidy their rooms.

My washing pile now takes up at least half of my newly scrubbed kitchen floor, and I have no idea where to hide it, every cupboard is crammed with 'stuff' and I STILL have food out on the sides in the kitchen.

Because OH and I went campervanning to France I stopped the camper with food, and bought extra in for the kids.

So when I came back we had everything from two salts and two vinegars to a pile of tinned food.

And I can't get it all in my cupboards.

So OH emptied the van and left it all on the side, and I've been looking at it for a week not knowing what to do with it.

On the upside I threw away every scrap of tupperware with no lid yesterday - which was everything bar one container.

Now given that I did that exercise a year and a half ago when we moved back here where on earth do the lids go?

Morning all Smile
Will keep everything crossed for you Corris! Can you not hide the washing in the washing machine until they are gone?
It's pouring down here so we are off to get dressed and go and get our wellies on! We are going to see the ducks and jump in some puddles before preschool later! Must pop into the library as well today!
Sorry to hear that Miss p, try and take it easy x x

Fingers already crossed, Corris! Is the camper van yours? If so, couldn't you hide some of your stuff in it?! And as for the food, you willl just have to eat it!!

Awful rain here today. Not looking forward to going to work at all today.

Camper van on hire - gone back.

There are probably around 6 loads of washing in front of the machine - no way that's going to fit in there...

I find the car is good for emergency storage (in winter it also serves as a wine store when the fridge is too full!).

Good luck with the viewing later.....I'm off to do a food shop, oh the excitment!!!
Had a lovely weekend, hubby and I went for a gorgeous meal on Saturday night to a local pub, and then didn't do much at all yesterday.
It's wet and miserable here today, so wellies out for taking daughter to school.

I am =)) =)) at the thought of Corris cramming mucky washing and tins of beans in her suitcases..

Ref Tupperware lids. I don't know where they go, I have lots of lidless tupperware as well but I just use cling flim to cover it when I use it for leftovers for the freezer.

Weather here terrible too, I'm wrapped up in a blanket nursing my cold and am NOT looking forward to having to venture out the house to work tommorrow.

Best of luck for later !! xx

It's cold and miserable here, so I've got Queen blaring out "Thank God it's Christmas" and I'm just about to start wrapping the Christmas presents so I can store them in the loft before they burst out of my wardrobe.
