Let's get on with the subject to hand. Today's post is about cleaning. Nice guess if you;re now thinking that I'm going to come up with some handy hint about how I'd made my deep fat fryer like new again using a stange concoction made out of something like ketchup and Arm and Hammer. This could work given the vinegar content of the sauce and the abrasiveness of toothpaste but I don't even own one to try it on. What I want to talk about is how satisfactory it's been to assign a whole month to spring cleaning slowly rather than forgoing a whole weekend to undertake, what is ultimately, a thankless task. As I've shown before, using my knicker drawer as a pertinent illustration, as chaos does indeed reign supreme. It'll only need doing again in the not too distant future especially as I've got a ten year old in tow.
I'm doing jobs for fifteen or twenty minutes, maybe half an hour at a push. And slowly,slowly by chipping away at the dust and the clutter, the house is getting tidy again after a month of neglect when I was working on my future Brixham home. What it means,at this busy time of the year, is that I haven't had to turn down any of the lovely invites or miss out on festivals, exhibitions or trips just because I'm doing the household equivalent of washing my hair!
