This evening my friend Helen is coming over for dinner (which I am cooking) and to stay over too. This will involve wine and chatter and a catch up, and a balance of chatter 95% to 5% her way!
Knowing that Helen is coming over, I have had to swing into action with a House-cleaning and spare room Operation, codenamed 'Don't think like a bloke' - plenty of housekeeping and dusting here, and then a review of suitability for an actual, proper girl! Yes BS5, you really should move that balled up pair of socks from July, and the newspaper article you meant to read back in May.
My house is actually pretty tidy most of the time but like that bloke on Masterchef always says at the end of round 1 'Right guys, now you need to step it up a a gear!'
Dinner no problem, dusting and hoovering more of a chore!
Off for a run through the rain now to think about it.
