Alastair, Dawn and Indy are arriving tomorrow for a 3 week visit. Iain and I have Big Birthdays coming up in May so this is all to do with us having a bit of a family get-together. Also it is a lovely time of year so it is time to get out and make the most of it!
Nothing sharpens the mind for tidying better than having folk coming to stay. Here is Harriet in her favourite place in the kitchen - the bottom drawer. (The tea towels tied to the oven handle help avoid squashed fingers.) At the moment the drawer has more toys in it than baking ingredients!
Ishbel and Harriet up to high-jinx.
I might try a Japanese approach: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo.
"Transform your home into a permanently clear and clutter-free space with the incredible KonMari Method. Japan's expert declutterer and professional cleaner Marie Kondo will help you tidy your rooms once and for all with her inspirational step-by-step method."
"Once you have your house in order you will find that your whole life will change." I look forward to that!
