Don’t ask me why … I don’t know … but I suddenly seem to have bursts of energy … maybe it’s the cooler weather … maybe it’s making the most of the last of the summer wine … but Cleaning Fever has taken over … these last few days have been a frenzy of feather dusters, bowls of soapy water, miracle cleaners and vacuums sweepers.
Curtains taken down and washed … Roman blinds washed by hand in the bath … a bit like using rocks down by the stream. Walls washed down to remove the smokiness caused by an open fire … paintwork scrubbed … dustwebs and spiders removed … pictures taken from the walls and cleaned. Exhausting work this ‘spring cleaning’ in August … it takes tremendous effort for one who dislikes housework intensely. But boy do I like the end result – still more to do though … mustn’t rest on my laurels just yet.
Getting down and dirty is a ‘once in a blue moon’ thing for me … not that I am lazy or anything – well, I am a bit – it’s just that there are other things I prefer to do with my time … and I am sure no-one else will notice the difference except me. I am definitely not in danger of becoming a Domestic Goddess that’s for sure.
‘Til next time … remember
“When you’re on your deathbed, you won’t regret not having spent more time cleaning. Buy brown carpet, to camouflage the coffee stains.” ~ Jarod Kintz
