Whenever I'm away on holidays I always imagine that I've left behind a tidy house - vacuumed, dusted, clothes put away. But of course it's rarely the case. And so coming home always involves putting away the washing that was left to dry on racks inside when we sped off, washing the mountains of clothes we brought home and of course the housework that I didn't do before we left. And because I've just cleaned and spruced up the house we holidayed in I feel like having a clean house too thank you very much. But then I looked at the piles of felted shapes that need sewing together and the brooches that need backs and all the myriad stuff I need to get done by Thursday .... well some things come first!
