The unexpected, but so so welcome sunshine, sparked a cleaning frenzy here. It was not just the sunshine but the warmth, too warm for hat and gloves when dog walking. Warm enough to dry the sofa quilts before lunch.
lots of this.
Quite a bit of this.
Loads of this, at least that is what it felt like.
Now I have to own up that the SO did the living room, including shampooing the carpet and polishing the leather sofas.
I went on my knees and scrubbed the bathroom and kitchen floors, it was not nice.
I use one of those spray mop things on both floors, daily, but as they have some texture there was plenty of trapped dirt. You couldn't see it on the floor but it soon showed up in the water.
Oh, The shame of it.
It is clean now.
The sun and warmth dragged me out with Herbie and Ben for an extra little walk. Hah, Little ? said Ben. Think again.
He set the pace and we teamed up with another walker and an hour later we got home. It was a circular walk, one that Ben has not done for over a year. He plodded along with the occasional sprint and plenty of diving into the undergrowth for a little investigatory sniffing.
He is now curled up on his cushion, sound asleep. Herbie is doing much the same but he is curled up on the SO,s lap.
I just want to empty the cleaning cupboard, give it a wipe out and replace everything in an orderly fashion. some things will need replenishing before my next proper shop. The SO has an eye test in Neath on Wednesday so I will slip into Wilko,s then.
I do not have an arsenal of cleaning products but I am very low on white vinegar and there is only a handful of soda crystals left. I am certain to find more than one container with only a dribble left.
Tonight's dinner will be bacon wrapped Camembert, root vegetable "chips" and salad. a bit of a treat meal as we have been so busy.
I have made some alterations to the little slippers pattern, the first one is finished and I will show the pair tomorrow. It is not quite as I want it but a good start.
Now I am in dire need of a cuppa before hitting that cupboard.
