There's nothing like knowing your mum will arrive at the airport in less than 3 hours to motivate you to scrub the house. I thought I had the cleanliness under control so that I could take it easy today in anticipation of her arrival, but um, no. I'm suddenly noticing cobwebs where there were none, cat hair where there was none, errant threads from sewing projects ALL OVER the house. Is it possible that I haven't mopped the floor in months? I know I'm just being hypercritical and that mum doesn't really care (or so she says) but I can't help it. Besides, isn't she the one that conditioned me this way?
