Over the past week I?ve been doing the day job and then heading back home for a late finish to get the house completed, and on Saturday with a hour or so to spare it was done and I was ready for my housewarming party. It?s been a long slog and the last thing I wanted to do was have a party when instead it would?ve been great to go for a long sleep but in the end I had a great time.
The weather was brilliant, I had a BBQ, there was plenty of food, the alcohol was flowing and the layout of the house proved to be great for a party. The party started at 3:30pm and the last guests left at 3:30am, so it was basically 12 hours of fun but I went through to the end (as a good host does), and then I finally got my sleep.. but not for long as I was awake just after 8am and I needed to get myself sorted for Sunday football (just like Tom). An easy option would?ve been to sack off football and stay in bed, but where?s the commitment in that?
It was really nice on Sunday afternoon to just potter around the house and not have to do any painting or decorating, and I didn?t even finish tidying up from the party! I tidied up the garden, put the bottles and cans in for recycling, threw away and leftover food,but I thought the rest could wait until this evening when I have some more energy!
There is of course some bits that I still need to do at the house but those can for now be put on the ?to-do? list for the future.
