When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

The Fairy At The Bottom of The Garden Has Gone!

on 17/12/2012

That’s right! I swear she must of moved into the house, as no human could of accomplished what I have don’t so far today with a toddler in tow.

After planning my pre-Christmas deep clean for last week and then tearing my calf muscle playing hockey I can honestly say I have done naff all for the whole of last week. So today I got my butt moving and I have finally started the deep clean.

Now while I have been cleaning the kitchen this morning I wondered if it was just me?

………… where does all the cack come from on top of the cooker hood? It’s quite vile!

I am a fastidious cleaner and I religiously clean as I have OCD tendencies (so Ollie would say). So where does all the sticky crap come from?

Other jobs I have tackled today that I hate are the shower drain! (gag gag gag), crumbs out of the toaster (I am sure there were enough in there to make 3 slices of bread),  kitchen cupboards and kick boards, cleaning and polishing the tiles in the kitchen, the windows and cleaned the hob!


If there really is a fairy at the bottom of the garden and she has come in, I am nominating her to clean the washing machine rubber seal and to clean the grot from round the kitchen bin!

To be fair I have had enough so think it’s time for a fag, a can of Pepsi Max and a long overdue snuggle with my boy.
