Oh dear.

Two weeks ago, Allen and I invited a few friends over for a BBQ to celebrate both our birthdays. We went to the markets, and Allen cleaned the house while I was cooking all day. We put on quite a spread.

We were waiting for about 12 people. About 35 showed up. I crashed in bed at 3h30, I had been on set all week, so I was pooped, but Allen didn't crawl in until 8h45am. What a night we had.

There was not one plate, not one glass or one single ustensil that was clean at the end of the night. I had never seen our house, especially our kitchen in such a state.
I had to stack glasses and things on the dining table and plates on my kitchen floor because I ran out of counter space. It was frightening. So frightening, that I took pictures. Check this out.

The next day, I attacked it. It took about 4 hours to clean everything up. 3 1/2 to do the dishes only. Can you believe it? I was soooo over it at the end. I actually took another picture to see the Before/After effect to make myself feel better.

I think next time I'll think twice before trowing another party of that magnitude.
Or use recyclable cutlery and plates and drink cups...
