Last week I decided that it would be a good idea to have a spring clean, as my ‘deep clean’ from when we put the flat on the market was in need of renewing! Plus, fingers crossed that we might get some potential buyers for the flat soon, and obviously it would all be much easier to get ‘show-tidy’ if I properly clean out all of my cupboards now.
Coincidentally, my mother in law is at something of a loose end at the moment as her bathroom and kitchen are being replaced and she’s trying to be out of the house and away from the disruption as much as possible. She’s an excellent housewife and so I was very pleased when she offered to come and help out for a day. Admittedly we spent a lot of the day talking, and once the children were home from school she was busy with them for the rest of the afternoon (she’s the stereotypical doting grandmother!), but she did clean out a big corner cupboard, clean everything that was inside and put it all back in for me, which is something I’d been meaning to do for ages.
Hopefully the new kitchen and bathroom take a while longer, so that she has a few more free days on her hands :-).
