Getting work done

Why is it that when you get around to organising work to be done in the house, you suddenly find yourself with a whole load of cleaning to do!!

I have a trellis out back leading from the window to the ground, used as a ladder by the cats. Originally done for a cat I had some time ago who was old and not too well, so that she could get out and in easily as the window cill was too high. However it is now falling to bits and dangerous for my current pair of cats to use safely. Also the cat flap got broken some time ago when they decided to have a fight in the cat flap, I am getting it replaced also.

Realising I am not sure how he will fit the cat flap ie from the outside or inside, decide to move the laundry basket to create room-however as it has not been moved in quite some time, realise the floor needs to be swept then washed. Of course then notice the tops of the washing machine and dryer are a bit grubby, decide to move the washing products and packs of cats food to wipe them down. By the time I have finished I see the kitchen sink is really dirty, has been a bit stained looking for some time so get out the various cleaners and start scrubbing. By this time the kitchen floor is looking the worse for wear so have to clean it. Rest is needed by this time along with a couple of painkillers.

Looking around with fresh eyes after a rest, realise the hall carpet is filthy - the cat with long black hair insists on having a good scratch in the hall and leaves big chunks of hair there daily!
So out comes the hoover.............

After all that realise when he is fitting new door handles that the edges of the door round the glass panels are filthy- oh the shame!!!

Well he has been now so all I have to do is put everything back after realising he is a man and notices NOTHING!!!!!!

Ok cuppa and feet up and watch Tv.............

  1. you never move one thing, you hoover & clean round it as once you've done that & cleaned you see far too much that then needs done. I recommend you do no more moving & looking at things!
