This week we played host to my sister and my nephew for a couple of nights. It was fun to have a few days of frivolity with my family from afar that I don't see nearly as much as I would like.
Afternoon tea, some assistance with a hairdressing issue and a semi-comfortable place to sleep was about as far as my hostessing skills stretched. I'm sure she will come back though.
I was even so terrible as to make her do some chores. Collecting the eggs in the places that are hard to reach and tending the sheep.
Having a home that is more inviting and friendly to others is something I would like to work on. I don't think I will be hosting any major events any time soon but maybe a morning tea or two could be a start.
