Bernie's Visit

I've been tidying up (and that's out of my comfort zone!). Ready for tomorrow when I pick up some visitors from Limoges airport.


The visitors are Bernie (an ex-neighbour of my mother's, whom I last saw about 40 years ago) and her partner - whom I've never met.


So I've been dashing round like a mad thing.  Here's my workroom now...


...and here's the middle room.


It may not look too tidy to you (and I still hope to have time tomorrow morning to do a little at the last minute...) but it's a great improvement on what it was like only a few days ago!


Maybe one day I'll have the perfect house - decorated and tidy - but tomorrow won't be that day!

I'm sure it's you they want to see not your house and don't you always feel more comfortable visiting someone whose house isn't like a showcase? I know I do!

Once I decided that I wanted my house to look right for ME, not for my visitors, I got a lot more relaxed about the odd corners and muddles! I love the way you've posted photos of it - a comfortable, busy place, ready to welcome a guest. What more is needed?

Is there such a thing as the perfect house? I think they should always look lived in not like show homes. Have a lovely time with your guests.
