In the past quite enjoyed having gatherings of people round. I am not a last minute person so any food that I prepared and could be frozen was done in advance, house scrubbed to within an inch of it's life beforehand along with shopping so everything sorted for the big day.
Now 72 not quite so keen on the work involved. Family tradition so our turn to host this coming New Years Day. I made the decision I am done with cooking so buying everything from the shops. Only thing I've made is a Christmas Cake.
Now the house, lucky in as much we live on a quiet road with just the two of us so doesn't get that dirty. Gave it a thorough do before Christmas so today am going round just dusting ledges that show. This was unheard of once, but I thought 'what the heck who's going to notice '.
Do others take short cuts they never used to and like me feel slightly guilty.
