Mark set his alarm clock this morning to put the rubbish out early as its rubbish collection day. We don't like putting them out the night before as the cats attack them in the night and make a mess. He normally puts them out before he goes to work but we have had late nights and been sleeping in the past few days! He put out TEN bin bags instead of the usual three or four!
We got up today and took the Christmas tree's and decorations down. I am sure it takes longer to put them away than it does to get them out. It's always sad to put them away but nice to get "back to normal" and relax in a clean and tidy house before everyone goes back to school and work. We gave downstairs a good dust and hoover and all our present's are still downstairs to look at and explore but its nice having the extra space and being a little more tidy and "normal".
Mark is working tomorrow so I plan on doing the same upstairs tomorrow, cleaning, dusting, changing beds and catching up on the ironing.
This afternoon we popped to the wool shop so I could exchange a ball of wool. I picked up this ball of berry coloured Katia Rocio Plus (colour 607).
I spent a long time (couple of hours!) this afternoon doing a 2013 blog review (scroll down its the previous blog post) looking over the high's and low's of our year.
