I have the house to myself for 48 hours - not for any particular good reason ... I have to work they get to play but hey .
Here's how I plan to de-boy the house .
1. Remove all man / teen / boy piles from every available surface
2. Collect up dropped clothes from all floors in all rooms in the house and throw into laundry basket - close door firmly.
3. Remove all signs of last weeks exam carnage . I do not want to see another textbook on electrical circuits or rock formations.
4. Reclaim the remote controls
5. Stock fridge with chilled rose and chocolate
6. Gather up 20 pairs of trainers from tripping zones in hallway and throw into cupboard
7. Put flowers in vase on kitchen table in the safe knowledge that the water will remain in the vase for the duration of the flowers
8 collect all mug / glass / cereal bowl debris from bedside tables and chuck into dishwasher
9 Bin sports / car sections from weekend newspapers on arrival
10 Play Michael Buble album on repeat ... and sing along
