i hate the word "housewife". cos i'm *not* married to my house. it shows. i do wipe around the bathrooms and clean the loos every day (yeah, we all have our fetishes) but i am a CLOSET closet-crammer.
yesterday, in celebration of Early Summer i had a wee *sunshine moment* and made myself a summer tote bag (yeah, nicked the pattern off sarah).
R15 : why do you call it a "spring clean"?
moi : because it's gonna take until september to finish it.
ye-e-e-e-s, it took three hours to clean up the lounge and half of the kitchen, including vacuuming up two inches of dust from under the telly and rescuing seventy zillion marbles and pieces of lego from under the couch, and wiping half a year's worth of mould from the wooden slatted blinds, and biffing the cd collection from 1994, and unearthing an old library book that i'd already paid for and will now be able to get my money back on. yuss.
and lookit the first cupboard in the kitchen: the pantry, cleaned and organised by R15.
NB: woozie is *not* the SPRING CLEAN GIVEAWAY.
a *summer tote* bag (like the ones i made yesterday) is. in the colour of your choice. just leave me a comment revealing your house-cleaning-fetish (yeah, i know ya have one or two: leaving shoes outside? or wiping under the toaster? or washing up the kitchen at soon as dinner is finished? or making your bed every day? or (*scratches forehead and think-think-thinks, cos none of those are mine*)... and i'll draw a winner by spring, as soon as we've finished cleaning up this:
or i *could* start creating the tote sooner, if anyone knows a fairy-with-a-magic-wand who'd like to *alacazam* my house?
