We have to do something together. (Durrr)
So I can't have her come over while I'm plastering and expect to get anything done. But today we just did cleaning and arranging in the living room, and she was very helpful! In fact, she even had a couple of suggestions which I found to be good!
So. We moved the big cupboard that I wallpapered, and it looks better where it is (although I had to move the thermostat in order to get it there), and moved the bird cage over to the other side of the room, where it's more out of the way, and set up a chair and bookshelves in a corner which has been junk since God was a little boy. In fact, you can now sit in two of the three chairs in the living room, and the couch is cleared off and usable, especially with it's new back on it.
You know what? It looks like a living room!
