having a bad day

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Have you ever noticed how one job/chore always leads to another? or am I just really clumbersome.

I attempted to clean my kitchen earlier: Started with the washing-up, just a few breakfast pots and a banana skin. Pots nearly done, go to cupboard with waste bin, struggle with child lock see bin is full. Empty bin, bag splits, re-bag waste (last bag - remember to write on shopping list). wipe mess from split bag off floor. Finish pots drop glass, smashes. brush up take outside to bin. Vaccuum any last glass shards… Damn vac needs emptying now. Empty vac puffing dust all over. NO HOOVER BAGS!!! use Henry without a bag to hoover dust up.

Woof woof! Dog wants to go out, let out.

back in house wipe sides in kitchen and set out ornaments nicely, Clean cooker hobs knock over ornaments that had been arranged nicely a moment ago, put right again. Fill up mop bucket, phone rings, answer phone, come back, bucket overflowing. Tip out water, mop floor…. Done!

Grab a coffee, milks leaked in fridge. clean up make coffee.

Woof woof!! let dog in.

OMG why cant the dog wipe it’s paws…… Why bother!

Moral to the story is… Don’t Bother - leave it to somebody else!

(never did write bags on shopping list!!!)

Spring Cleaning

Monday, April 4th, 2011

Have you ever wondered why we chuck the pets in the garden, open all windows and completely bottom the house?

Back in the old days of coal fires and straw matresses it was standard precedure for the housewives to clean the house from top to bottom. The idea was to wait for the winter chill to dissappear and completely freshen the house up. The housewife would clean out the fireplaces and the soot in the house created by the fires, this included the floors. walls, ceilings and furniture in all rooms.

There was often a smell which built up over the winter period due to not being able to air sheets and blankets. Spring was a chance to be able to hang out the laundry after washing and feeding through a mangle. The matresses were normally emptied, washes and refilled with fresh hay.

Jews believed that bread was a forbidden food during ‘passover’ So spring was a chance to remove every last breadcrumb from the house before passover which is in April.

Persians believed in completely bottoming the house in which they called ‘khooneh takouni’. In English ’shaking the house’. A similar tradition is the Scottish “New Year’s cleaning” on Hogmanay.

Leaflets re ordering on time!

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009

Well I returned slightly earlier than usual today from an afternoon feeding the mouths on people’s doors with my leaflets.

The reason that I finished slightly earlier than usual is due to the reason that I completely ran out of leaflets and my next order is not due to arrive until the middle of next week! So now I am stuck for a few days twiddling my thumbs waiting for their arrival.

Usually I judge my re ordering much better than this, but what as caught me out this time is the wonderful weather that we are having, I have been staying out for much longer periods of time and hence shifting larger quantities of leaflets per session.

Does size really matter?

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Well I firmly believe that size really does matter, you do not always receive a better service from using a bigger size, sometimes a small size really does service your needs far better and is often much more conscious of your individual needs and requirements and will look after you far better.

I have found through experience that the bigger the size the more often you are left disapointed.

The smaller the size that I have gone for the more satisfied I have ultimately being.

How have you found size in your experience have you found that you have had greater satisfaction from bigger or smaller sizes?

Oh just to clarify the point, I am referring to the size of businesses and how they treat their customers. wink

Advice on chimney sweeping domestic cleaning tip No65

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

I hope that you will appreciate this household domestic cleaning tip that offers you advice on sweeping your chimney to be beneficial. You will also find below a link to other household domestic cleaning tips that make up this series of small articles that I am currently publishing on a regular basis.

 Advice on chimney sweeping domestic cleaning tip No65

This domestic cleaning tip is or should be very obvious. If you have a open coal fire and instead of hiring a professional chimney sweep you decide to sweep your chimney yourself make sure that you always cover up your carpets and furniture with old sheets.

Also and more importantly secure a board up against your fire surround and make an hole in it just big enough for your chimney sweep rods to go through as this will drastically reduce the amount of soot that escapes into your room.

This advice if followed will most certainly save your carpets and furniture requiring some intensive cleaning.

Cleaning from top to bottom Cleaning reduction tip

Saturday, May 2nd, 2009

I am currently writing a series of small articles, which are aimed at what I call domestic cleaning reduction! Strictly speaking these cleaning tips are focused more on the minimising of the household domestic cleaning requirements within your household, by explaining ways that you can reduce the spread of dirt, grime and germs throughout your property.

Cleaning from top to bottom

When cleaning your property it is always advisable to start at the top and work downwards. If you start at the bottom and work up you will often discover that you will be messing up the bottom again once you dust and clean the higher levels, causing you to have to do the job twice.

New cleaning reduction tips are always more than welcome.
