It's New years Eve and as the title says--Old habits are hard to break.
One of my mothers old sayings were"if you have an untidy home on New Years Eve your home will be untidy all year long"
Now isn't that a doozy--but it is embedded in my mind- always has been and it always will be---so today the ritual began again.
The cleaning has been done -the beds have been changed--the washing is done and when it is dry it will be ironed all before the new year rings in.
How tidy is this lounge room(I hope I don't have visitors). I remember one year I was running late and it was 11.30pm and I still had my sewing room floor to vac. --I was going flat out and hadn't realised that the vac. cord had wrapped itself around the sewing machine foot control and when I pulled on the cleaner the next thing I knew was that the sewing machine had done a head dive onto the floor...eeeek.
I timidly picked it up -to frightened to see if it was broken --cussed a few choice words--plugged it back in and thankfully there was no damage----and no it wasn't my Bernina it was a Janome which I had before the Bernina.
So now I start the ritual early in the day just so I can relax around midnight.
I have cleaned the sewing room but I am not going to show you because even though it has been cleaned it still looks messy and I can live with it but I don't think I need to scare you at this point in time.
I think I will have to resolve to try to keep it in a better shape but please don't think bad of me if
or should I say when I fail.
Lastly let me wish all my blogging friends a wonderful-creative New Year and I will see you in 2008
Happy New Year
