Today and tomorrow I have to prepare for the Autumn Equinox barbecue. So far I have made a List and crossed off one item: I have dealt with all the pillow-cases left in the main room after being dried, from last time the house was full plus a couple of weeks of our own pillowcases; twenty ironed and put away. (I like ironed pillow-cases; OH doesn’t; I iron them. Seems fair.)
Now I must do the rest of that List.
Tidy the main room:
put the shoeboxes waiting to be used to post goodies to Sudden Daughter into one large box
take the four cardboard boxes which are lying about waiting to be useful and put them into the attic
sweep the stairs, which come down into that room
put all the chairs up onto the table and set loose the Roomba
Make up a bed for the person staying on Friday night and sort out a towel and a water-by-the-bed bottle for her
Make up a bed for the person staying on Saturday night (or at least, put a duvet and two pillows into covers ready to be swapped onto the bed) and sort out a towel and a water-by-the-bed bottle for him
Clear the kitchen so it can be used for a large preparation
Go to the dentist at 5pm for 5:30pm.
If I manage all that I am doing well. I don’t want to leave it all to be done tomorrow, because if I do I shall be a rag by the time I go to fetch our Friday night guest tomorrow evening.
