Tidy - Grin with cat attached — LiveJournal

Just tidied my flat - well, lounge and bedroom at least - cleared the floors, put all the clothes away, folded the towels, and hoovered.|
Getting up the motivation to do this is so often beyond me. I've got it done this time because I hate the place being a mess for people to come in and work - ie the plumber. I'm not sure what it means that I can't get this done for friends to visit. Do I worry more what strangers think than friends?
Or have I just finally got it done because I'm feeling so much better right now?
I spent most of today in G&P, playing Looney Labs games with the staff, LL rep, Alex' girlfriend Jo, and a few customers (less than we might have hoped). I find I can chat with customers no problem, and could now quite happily work in a shop situation without getting sociophobic.
Or at least in G&P, because the atmosphere there's particularly good.
I don't think I could have done that on a daily basis a while ago. I'm not sure how long ago, but possibly not very. I think I can cope with people far better now.
Oh, and the LL games rock - even if they make my brain hurt. I'll have to get sets of both Aquarius and Chrononauts, and of course play them with someone occasionally.
Today was rather a lot of fun. Next weekend it's Settlers - the board game, expansions, card game, and maybe even Starfarers.
Of course, these games always take rather longer to play than the LL games - a couple of hours or so - so it'll be slightly different.
One thing that happened a few times today were that customers said something like "sorry to interrupt your game, but I want to buy something". I think G&P needs big signs saying "Games demonstration - please ask for info or help". Or t-shirts with that on the back.
I think I might spend quite a few Sundays in there - it's a good chance to play games, and hopefully vaguely helpful too.
