    Pre, pre-drinks? Or, a drink at home followed by pre-drinks at the cheap bar before going to a more expensive bar where you won't drink as much, given you've already had the pre, pre-drinks and pre-drinks

    OK chaps, I'm going in. After two years of badgering, my Lovely Cousin has finally agreed to clear out the cupboard above the fridge and give the contents a good culling.
    Don't worry, I'm not going in without a rope tied round me.

    We have a cupboard of doom waiting to be cleared but it very much lives up to its name, so we ignore it as much as possible

    It turns out we had two cupboards that needed clearing out.

    Up and down steps, binning stuff and shredding paperwork, we are both now suffering from stiff necks and sore backs.
    I think that's enough for one day. Sadly there I still a lot more to do.

    I'm entering our cupboard of doom later. I have a torch, rope, and Kendal mint cake. Send help if I'm not out by Monday.

    I decided not to enter the cupboard of doom until there was another adult in the house to pull me out

    Instead I decided to clean the kitchen wall tiles and cupboard doors. I'm suffering from "Parents visiting soon, only 8 days to clean the house to their standard" syndrome.

    A wise decision. The emptying of deep, dark cupboards should not be attempted without a responsible adult being present. That lets me off doing anything on my own.

    Don't forget to leave a DNA sample, and make sure your underwear has got your name written in indelible ink on it for identification purposes.

    You shouldn't worry about parents looking at your house with a critical eye, unless they arrive wearing white gloves and start running a finger across the top of doors and shelves.

    It doesn't matter how scrupulously clean your house normally is, the day your mother visits will be moments after a whirlwind of grandchildren or husbands motorbike or car club or wife's rugby club friends, or builders have just passed through.

    You cannot escape your mother's tssk tssk comments or silent rabbit nose of disapproval.
