Friendly Fix-It Men & Other Saturday Stuff
While Mr Fix-It Man was fiddling around with the range, I was cleaning the bits and pieces he had to take down. Obviously it hadn't been done for quite some time. Frances - it only took 10 minutes. One cleaning job at a time is the only way to clean a kitchen!!!! I think one a week....but you might go for one a day.
Since then we've been at a working bee day at school. My golly those days make me feel old and feeble. I'm thinking it has less to do with me and more to do with the really heavy jobs they put on the list to be completed. Some of them I just looked at and said "nope, that's not for me". I felt a bit bad about that, but there were plenty of men looking for things to do. So I cleaned the tuck shop cupboards (not a pretty job, but a woman was required!), de-cobwebbed the Primary school and cleaned the walls outside the secondary classroom. I think a good movie or a book with a cosy rug is a good way to recover. The fog has made the hills behind our house disappear and the rain has started again - definitely a good stay-inside kind of afternoon.
