Christmas is coming

Christmas is coming and I haven't put up our tree yet. It's only a small one, 30 cm high. But I'm not quite sure where to put it that our 16 month old daughter won't get into it. It'll need to be up by Tuesday, as we're having a family Christmas dinner here. We are doing it while my parents are up and before my brother and his partner move back down south. Plus my Dad's sister and her husband are joining us. It should be fun. It's also the first time I've done a family Christmas dinner at my place, so that is going to be interesting.

I'm still trying to get my housework under control. I'm not the worlds best housekeeper to start with, and when you add a toddler who likes attention and doesn't like sleeping, plus depression and feeling overwhelmed at times, it doesn't make for a tidy (or organised) house. But I'm working on it.

I made a list today. I now know what I need to have done before Tuesday. There are about 10 things on the list. This doesn't include shopping for food or cooking dinner for the family. There is also a 'bonus task', which I'd like to do, but doesn't matter so much if it doesn't get done. 10 things to do, 5 days (Tuesday doesn't count as I'll be shopping, cooking, decorating and enjoy family company). Two tasks a day is surely manageable, assuming my daughter co-operates.....


  1. Gosh, you are busy! Good luck, I am sure it will all work out in the end!

    1. Thanks. Luckily, some of the things are small, so shouldn't take long to do....
