I think you have heard enough about the garden at the moment - time to head back inside the house. I have been so pleased at my tidied-bedroom and the way that it has REMAINED tidy since I did the big sort out before Christmas - now I just have to apply myself to the rest of the house.
We have decided to carry on with the application to take the European students in September, and someone will be coming to visit us - so we need to be spick and span for that, especially as she will be taking photos - eeek! This weekend I have been having a sort out in the office, which was the dining room, in an attempt to bring it back into use as a dining room as well as having an office area at one end where I can work..........I'm getting there! I will have to explain to her that the second student hasn't got a bed yet - I have had the offer of one from my dad but I have to work out the logistics of getting it here! I will just be borrowing it as when we downsize to a smaller place in the future, I am sure that we will not have room for four single beds.
I have to say that reading the book on the Kindle about the Marie Kondo method of tidying has helped me to consider things in a different light - and the YFG's making of some amazing chocolate brownies this weekend from a recipe off the BBC Good Food website makes me think that we can do without the 1001+ recipe books which are lining our walls. Well, maybe we'll keep a few favourites.
The trouble with spring is that there is never enough time - I want to be outside, sowing seeds and painting the sheds, etc, not in the house! Oh well, hoping for better weather for a couple of days so that we can actually get outside and do things - had enough rain now but unfortunately, there is more in the forecast for today, which does save me watering the grass for today so it is not altogether a bad thing.
Today I am working on the phones for four hours as I only did 2 hours yesterday, and I have a meeting with the tutor for my church work this afternoon too. Hope you all have a blessed day x
