It’s those days between the festive season and the middle of January – you’re still in ‘holiday’ mood but with the New Year begun you feel you ought to be doing something.
This is the time of year when I see things in a different light – it’s also the time of the year when the sunlight shows all the things that have been hiding in the shadows. You know – things like dusty skirting boards, cobwebs and dratted dirty windows 😬
So even though Spring might have been and gone, in between sitting around reading and generally doing nothing there are times on these warm summer days I often feel compelled to give some rooms a ‘deep’ clean. Strip the room bare, give it a good once over, put it back together all nice and clean and walk away content. The rest of the year the house could fall down around me and I’d not be bothered 😊
And here just for your viewing is part of today’s effort. A before and after shot of nice shiny clean front bedroom windows along with freshly laundered curtains. Yes I’m an old lady who has terylene net (better known by the modern name ‘sheer’) curtains on her big windows.
Of course Kiera’s routine hasn’t changed – she eats and sleeps as is normal for an 18yyr old. She has altered one thing since we came back in December, in that she has forsaken her favourite sunny spot from previous years on the edge of the deck for the warm shade of a bed in the old garage.
She has a room with a view plus early warning if that new cat……the one that moved into the neighbourhood whilst we were away last April……uses our back garden as a short cut to his own house! From the look of those pricked ears I think he might have been doing just that.
