It’s that time of year again when the house needs a good sort out in time for Santa’s visit. Yes kids, that means your bedroom as well.
How do you expect Father Christmas to come and sneak in in the middle of the night with is sack full of toys if there’s pieces of Lego and cuddly toys all over the floor?
That’d look great, wouldn’t it – Santa can’t finish his Christmas deliveries as he’s broken his leg falling over your toy car tin. Now that’d hurt jumping down a chimney.
So you know what you’ll be doing next week when you’re off school, don’t you – making it all nice and tidy and sorting your toys out ready to make way for any new ones he might bring…
I’m no better though. We put the Christmas tree up this week. In order to put the tree up in our house we have to do a bit of furniture re-arranging and move the sofa.
HOW much crap accumulates under those things?! Where does it all come from?! On pulling the sofa away from the wall, under it I found:
– 5 toy cars
– 4 smelly socks
– three cuddly toys
– 2 old pegs (?!)
and a partridge in a pear tree.
Well ok, maybe not the last one. I wouldn’t have been surprised if there was one under there though. There was everything else under there.
The mantlepiece needed polishing and things moving off it to make way for Christmas cards and the advent calendars they each have.
Things need wrapping up, but I’m leaving THAT job to the last minute as I hate wrapping up presents.
Maybe not the best strategy though, as this will create even more mess as I’ll be surrounded by screwed up wrapping paper where I’ve tried to wrap something up and started over again as it looked like something an elephant has trampled on.
Not to mention trying to find the end of the sellotape from the last time I tried to wrap something up. I swear it just disappears on purpose to laugh at you.
Oh well, at least it only comes once a year. Now if you could keep the mince pies, get togethers, and festivities without the stress then I’d be sorted.
Merry Christmas 🙂
