Dust to Dust

Those of you who know me will agree that I am, ..... how do I put this delicately?...... not a natural housewife (be kind with your comments!!) I am not one of those fanatics who clean behind pictures on a daily basis, in fact, I don't think I have ever cleaned behind my pictures! When cleaning, I don't move large appliances (or anything larger than a shoebox, actually) - too much like hard work - nobody sees behind there anyway. And, as for dusting, you know the saying "dust to dust..." .... well, my philosophy is : you never know who that dust might have been once .... and I firmly believe you should let deceased Great Uncle Algernon rest in peace .... especially if he is on top of your tv!

I have christened the vacuum cleaner "Sid", named after the punk rocker Sid Vicious, because of its vicious tendency to violently latch onto anything in its path and try to devour it. So far, he (Sid - the vacuum cleaner) has devoured table mats, bathroom mats, sponges, small perfume bottles, socks, pens and pencils, small notebooks and a salt cellar. He has tried, but failed to slurp up the bedspread, bedside lamp, my trousers (with me still in them!), two bars of soap and his own motor. I seem to spend my life swearing at him, swatting at him, trying to break his suctioning grip and digging in his intestines to retrieve valuables. Is it any wonder I hate him?? (Still talking about the vacuum here, not DH)!!

Actually, I am waiting for this to become commercially available, more my scene .......


However, and this is the whole point of this blog, when you see mushrooms growing on the sill of your door, you KNOW you have got to do something ....



Definitely gonna get me a maid tomorrow ....!!!

*** Just to set the record straight ... The bit about the mushrooms and the door was a bit of literary licence - the door is not actually MINE - it is the apartment building's stairway door!! It is so humid, steamy and hot on the stairwell that these fungi have sprouted!!
