If you get a text or a call saying that a friend or family member is on the way, are you ready? Is your house clean and tidy?
Ours sometimes isn't. It can easily look like a house well lived in, a house of fun;
I'm not showing what our kitchen looks like if I decide to have a day off cleaning/tidying it. I hate washing and lufflump loves making massive messes, so the house isn't usually spotless.
I'm not saying that we live in filth, we don't, but having a toddler means that if we don't tidy up every night it piles up REALLY quickly. Tidying up can be a quick five minutes tidy or an hour depending on how much lufflump decided to empty. Sometimes it's just one box in the lounge room, sometimes it's all the boxes PLUS his bookcase. Add that to the washing, the kitchen and our own mess it can be a lot of work at the end of the day just when we don't feel like it.
So, in the morning if we get a warning that we are going to have guests it's a big rush to clean and tidy everything. I'd rather it wasn't and hopefully through the current organising and purging journey we are on, it won't be as bad.
Is your house always guest ready? How do you do it!?
