I don't consider cleaning and tidying to be my life's work.
Of course, I like things to BE clean and tidy, but I have to do it. So my house tends to go in cycles - from "Unnaturally Clean and Tidy Because The Kids Are Coming To Stay" through all the varying stages to "I Hope No-one Drops In Because I Would Be Embarrassed" - which is unfortunately the current cycle.
In a week, Cass and Sophie WILL be coming to stay, so a major effort is required. The part of my house where I spend my waking hours is Dining/Living/Sewing/Storage/Studio AND Office space. It's also where the dogs live.
Not surprisingly, it gets rather cluttered. Yes, I've heard of the FlyLady. But that only applies to normal people who aren't working on 6 (or7 or 8)or more creative projects at once. And who need to have things sitting around to inspire them. Or in sight so that they actually get done. Oh well.
So while I get myself sorted, here's a photo I took yesterday of Oamaru - sun and haze after a much-needed night of rain.
