New project required

Well, I started my Mobius Wrap in Patons Inca at lunchtime on Wednesday, 14th November and finished in the afternoon on Thursday, 15th November. I've barely stopped wearing it since and yes, I will post a photograph. Eventually.

So, anyway, as I finished, hubby said to me,
"So, what are you going to do now?"
"Oooo, find another project, I suppose."
"You don't fancy doing any cleaning then?"

What an odd question I thought and ignored it completely. I flicked the duster in the general direction of the television, (have to do that occasionally or can't see the picture...) and I do rather like my new vacuum cleaner, so I have thrown that around once or twice. I may have given the bathroom a once over too, but nothing serious. I didn't want him getting any ideas!

Today, I'd had enough. I've been having awful trouble with the kitchen floor. Even after washing, it still looked filthy and was really beginning to get to me. The oven was in desperate need too. I got really carried away though. I put the oven shelves in the bath in a biological solution to soak, painted the inside of the oven with potent stuff and scrubbed the floor on my hands an knees with viscous, scrubby pad thing. Then I put a kind of polish on, hoovered the downstairs while it dried and then put the shelves into the dishwasher. After collecting Conall this afternoon, I rubbed all the dried on but now flakey stuff off the shelves and wiped off the gunk from inside the oven. I'm down to the bottom layer of burnt on stuff now! (I think it was once leaking blackberry juices. Really sticky stuff.)

Now, you can see shiny shelves through the glass door. You can see through the glass door! The light is really blindingly bright aswell, now the lense has been cleaned. It was all going swimmingly until I closed the kitchen door, whilst still in the kitchen.

Pants. I missed a bit. A long, thin bit. Shaped a bit like the end of the door...

Still, my study material for 'Studying Mammals' has arrived. My new project!

I planned to decorate our house before Christmas - I scrubbed about 1 metre of skirting board, in prep for painting it, and that was as far as I got! So hats off to you!

The mammal studies sound interesting.
