This weekend I will be cleaning house ALOT. Work has just been so busy this past month, I am ashamed to say I have let things seriously slide at home.
Now I am not a lover of housework, unlike my mum who seems to have a special gene that makes her love cleaning. That's not to say my home is ever dirty, but it get very untidy at times and this is just such a time.
Mid-week I did have this wonderful plan of cleaning a room each night after work. The first night I did the main bathroom, that was Tuesday and here I am at Saturday with no further progress. I mean it is a great plan, get my whole house done one room at a time each day and keep cycling it, then my home is always clean and tidy.
One slight problem, this means I clean everyday and reality tells me that ain't ever going to go over longterm!
So today will be a cleaning day with my trusty friend my Dyson DC15 Ball. Yesterday our school cleaner called me just to say "Sarah I got my new vacuum and I LOVE IT! I mean I really LOVE IT!" A little later I bumped into her hoovering a classroom and guess what she had - a Dyson. I told her immediately I totally understood her need to call having been a Dyson girl for 10 years myself. I think her hubster will be hearing about the work Dyson regularly until she has one at home.
It broke my heart to leave my first one in England, and what with a new house etc, it was a year before we could afford my new one. The hubster could still relate how happy I was the day the Dyson arrived and my rapturing for weeks after I cleaned. He is also now a Dyson convert, having initially thought they were over-priced.
They just get so much more dirt up and if you have pets as we do, I really think you're missing out if you don't have a Dyson. That first time we used it here, the amount of hair it got up was scary considering we swept every week before!
So I am off to clean, whilst the hubster is going be doing the male equivalent and change the oil in our vehicles!
