Well in case anyone was wondering where I was yesterday I was spending the day cleaning.
My living room was disgusting, the place was covered in fur and junk to the point where I didn’t dare take a photo of it because I couldn’t have posted it any way. So you will just have to take my word for it, it was dis-gus-ting and really needed doing.
It took you the whole day? I hear you ask, well yes the joy of MS, I had to have many many many rests, more rests than cleaning towards the end and I knew if I turned on my laptop I would never get it done.
So the end result….
Now Toby does not like the vacuum cleaner, he kept attacking it and making very strange whining talking noises to it and me as if he was telling it to go away. I would have tried to record it but I doubt you would have heard it over the noise of the vacuum and he was in no mood to be filmed at the time.
Luckily he had no such problems with brushes or mops and once the old rugs were cleaned and rolled up he seemed much happier again though he did decide that where ever I had just mopped was the perfect place to lie down
Part of this cleaning binge was to put down the new rug that my parents bought me…pretty don’t you think? and to get up some decorations. I’m not big on the whole Christmas thing because it’s become to commercial, but I will decorate my home in the way we have for centuries to remind myself that there is life and colour to come again in Spring. I made a mini forest on my dining table this year, it’s been building up for a while so I decided to go the whole hog this year and every tree I have has made a little patch of green in my living room.
Now that my
washing pile dining table is clear and decorated I’m going to have to try and keep on top of everything, annoyingly I have clothes drying again already but I’m determined to keep on top of the ironing now that I finally cleared the mountain and got it all put away.
Once I finished I treated myself to a nice home cooked meal and it looked so yummy I couldn’t resist taking a photo of it to show you that I can cook 😛
It was sooo yummy and Toby was rather jealous of it. It may be a bit cold for salad but who cares when it has a lovely piece of grilled chicken breast smothered in spices and sweet chilli sauce! I’m making myself hungry now and it’s nowhere near to lunchtime yet.
I’m deciding which room is going to be attacked next now…the kitchen is in dire need, my bedroom is…well almost as disgusting as the living room was, the hall and stairs really need dusting and vacuuming and my poor study has been filled with so much junk I can barely move in there. Have you ever watched those programs about hoarders? I’m turning into one, but I’m determined to keep trying to clear out every now and then to stop it getting to that stage.
I think…..the kitchen has to be next…it really needs a thorough scrubbing and I have jars of preserves that need labelling still sat on the counter that have been there for weeks waiting. Now all I need to do is make myself move off this very comfy sofa in this nice clean room and make myself start all over again 🙄
