Well, it's almost upon us. Good luck everyone. Hope the celebrations go fantastically well for you all.
Slight mishap yesterday whilst changing the sheets on the beds. You see, because I'm lazy that way, I usually throw the dirty linen down the stairwell. This keeps my hands free to carry the zillion and one cups and plates down from the kids' rooms. Two jobs for the price of one, see.
Unfortunately, this time I totally forgot that there was a beautifully decorated Christmas tree standing directly underneath the stairwell. I remembered just as the last thread of bed sheet left my fingers and began its decent.
Nothing smashed fortunately, but the carpet was strewn with baubles, pine needles and beads. The south-face of the tree has now been redecorated!
