Since the Olympics is now over, so is my husband's stint working from home. Today he has gone into the office. And I have done:
1. Three loads of washing
2. Prepped his bathroom ready to be painted
3. Emptied the baskets on the balcony which were full of weeds (I mean, how does that happen?)
4. Emptied the rubbish
5. A quick supermarket shop
6. Baked a cake.
I have a great big feeling of achievement - The chores will be blitzed. And also at the moment the flat is getting a complete overhaul. My husband is implementing the 4 year rule. If it hasn't been touched for 4 years, it's going in the bin, recycling, or charity shop. So much stuff we have accumulated over the last 10ish years. I don't know where it all came from. But we are getting there. It seems like every cupboard in the house is like Mary Poppins' bag though - so much STUFF.
I myself reject the 4 year rule, especially when it applies to things in my wardrobe. I prefer the 'Do I think I might need it in the next 4 years?' rule. Perhaps someone objective should come in and go through the wardrobe for me. I mean, at what age is it unacceptable to wear miniskirts? Or does it depend on how good your legs look in them?
Stick with me about the Cruise posts - We haven't got to the photos yet and I can't possibly post without including some of the stunning pictures!
