It is now one week until Christmas. This year we are hosting Christmas lunch for my family. They will be arriving from near and far on Thursday evening and Friday. Some will be staying with us and others in accommodation just a few kms away.
This weekend I have written numerous lists and managed to cross off a few things and I feel relatively organised. The menu is planned, necessary ingredients bought apart from fruit and vegetables which I will do on Friday, gifts bought and wrapped and the outside of the house cleaned.
We usually try to wash down the Colorbond wall of the house twice per year. It is now looking clean, fresh and ready for guests.
The hardest part is the back wall which is quite high and requires the use of the mobile scaffold.
The table which GMan painted recently is in position and Ready for Christmas lunch.
I have also cleaned most of the windows in the living room and am hoping to get a few others done as well this week.
How are your Christmas plans coming along?
Haven’t done as much pre -Christmas cleaning as I would have liked to have done, but did manage to complete the food shopping today (minus the veg box which will arrive Christmas Eve). Will you be dining al fresco on Christmas Day? Can’t ever imagine doing that here!!
Sorry for the late reply – yes, we did dine alfresco. It was a relatively cool day for summer here – only 23C. It is usually more likely to be in the 28 – 32C range so was a pleasant change.
