We are waiting for visitors to arrive. I don't have a big family, but what bit we have seems to have spread far and wide. My Aunt and Uncle have lived in Holland for well over 30 years now, but manage to get back to Yorkshire fairly often for visits. They are only staying a few days as they have friends and old neighbours to see in Oundle, Northants which is where they lived prior to their big move. The Dancing Queen has kindly offered them her room as it has a double bed in it, but also because it gets an "Aggie and Kim" style clean up - which she thinks will last her another year when they have gone!!! I thought I would show you a photograph of it while it is reasonably tidy as it is normally A TIP!!!! She is camping out in the spare room which we turned into a teenage "lounge" recently. We did this so that they could entertain their friends away from the fuddy duddies. The young man has moved back into the smallest bedroom in a high sleeping bunk bed. This just has room for his bed with a chest of drawers underneath, a wardrobe and a cupboard. It used to be my sewing room/ironing room/general dumping ground, and got exceptionally untidy. By re purposing these rooms, they seem to stay (reasonably for us!!) tidy most of the time.
