Being the wife of a painter and decorator, my house is usually last on the list. In fact when I had a new kitchen installed, I waited three years for the decoration to be done.
So, yesterday, when my husband said he had a day free today and was going to do the living room, who was I to argue, despite the fact that it was a mad rush to get everything out of there.
Now the rest of the house is in chaos, I have furniture in the kitchen and electrical equipment, lamps and books in the dining room.
Of course, it's been far to disruptive today to write, or even do any work, instead I went out and started the Christmas shopping - not that I made much headway.
But never mind, it will all be over in a few days, I'll have a clean and sparkling living room, and then hopefully I be able to get back to work.
