Amazing! Look - there is a clear table where a family can eat together! I am ashamed to admit that this poor table had been buried under a mountain of clutter for nearly two months, forcing us to eat from plates on our laps. Not what I wanted for our family. However, I spent most of Monday clearing this table, and we have eaten meals on it ever since. The challenge is now to keep it clear. I recently resurrected the utility room from under a pile of junk and I am managing to keep that generally tidy and usable. The trouble with that room is that the family has got used to coming in the back door and just dumping things there - coats, shoes, dirty clothes for the washer, eggs, garden produce, etc and it just got overwhelmed! The room also does duty as my pantry storage area, so it is actually quite important to keep it clean.
Having rescued the dining table and the utility room, I am off to sort out the airing cupboard this afternoon.......I will be back.....
