We can after this weekend claim that we have our house back. It feels like home again - full of life, friends and kids all the time.
Yesterday a former co-worker and her daughter (who also used to babysit for Ludvig and Siri) visited. And the kids had friends over.
Today a new neighbor family with their kids visited.
To fill the house with friends and kids again made the house feel like home again. That's how it used to be. Perhaps a bit crowded and untidy, but full of life. But I'll stop making excuses for not having a spotless home - or else I wouldn't do anything else these days.
