Packed to the Rafters

Why I should win:

My husband and I are looking forward to the time when our two boys/Men would be leaving home (fat chance).  The older one, Brad (25) has left and come back twice, this time with his girlfriend.  But its Evan (22) who has no intention of moving.  He's doing a plumbing and gasfitting apprenticeship and "Im only getting a pittance I cant afford to leave yet". (Roll on the end of his apprenticeship).  Its not just Evan, its his mates, I love them all dearly but - they call our home "Headquarters".  Every Friday and Saturday they are there, Saturday for the pre town drinks and then they come home at 5.30am on Sunday waking everyone up with their reminiscing and then crash on the floor.  I cant remember the last time I got up on Sunday morning without waking during the night let alone being able to go to a tidy kitchen dressed how I want or not, as the case may be.  Now food - dont get me started, its got to be this or that, whats wrong with a nice healthy salad. Lets not for  get the washing, by the time Evan has been to work then to the gym that's two towels a day, in the weekend its easily three towels if not more, and that's not to mention his clothes.  Why he cant hang up a towel and reuse it is beyond me.  Help we would love our house back and would far more enjoy Evans visits.
