#oneaday, Day 72, Spring Clean

This morning my wife and I* decided that we would tidy the house. We have a couple of busy weekends ahead, including my 30th birthday house party, so needed to get ahead of the game a little. Apparently.

Anyway, she reckoned that if we got going, it would only take us three hours max. We started about 10.30am, and finished at about 8pm. The house however, does look pretty damn good. Book cases have been tidied, and we have a bag of stuff to flog on eBay – which will merit future blog posts I’m sure, as I have never sold on eBay before.It also made me realise a few things:

1) We live in an area where the water is so hard, other compounds are scared. And as such the screen in our shower was nasty. And when I finished cleaning it with suitable chemicals (may not have been suitable) smelt like a swimming pool plant room.

2) Laminate floors look lovely, but don’t half show the dust.

3) If I sorted out my mail as it arrived, I would be much more popular in this house.

So, for those of you coming over for my birthday, assuming we don’t make a big mess between now and then, please say something nice about the house.
