Steamy Clean

Okay, so this post is going to be a little out of the usual for me…  nothing is created. Something is cleaned though and glory what a clean!

I hate cleaning. As in would rather poke out both my eyes and run an obstacle course than clean my house. I am in constant envy of mama-dearest who has a weekly cleaner, alas, our budget just won’t cut it. Not if I want to keep sewing and creating things. Due to this aversion I tend to let things slip the more exhausted and bogged down by marking I get during the term.

Recently I convinced Hubster that we needed to get a steam mop. As I am uncommonly uncoordinated, the traditional bucket and mop method often left our carpet between rooms featuring lino covered in water. “Think of the carpet” I told him. Plus it was cheap.

Will I be this happy mopping my floors???

Corralling in the Kitchen

Since Hubster and I decided to purchase the house we currently live in, we have started to organise ourselves and are trying to sort things so they are just the way we want them. One catalyst for all this organisation is the fact that we are getting the carpets replaced. As we are already living in the house, this means moving ALL of the furniture out of the house while the old carpets are pulled up and the new ones installed. Phew, the thought of this literally makes my blood run cold so we have decided to start early and get things ship shape so we aren’t moving junk out and then back in at the time.

The first stop for us is the Kitchen. We’ve already installed this handy dandy kitchen shelf.

Today we started on corralling all the junk we had attached to the fridge. Unfortunately I didn’t take a before photo (I swear my brain is like goo at the moment) but rest assured it was a state. Photos, menus, recipes, other assorted papers stuck all over it. So much so that we could no longer see the awesome magnets we were given as wedding presents and those that we have collected on our travels.
