Here is a foolproof way to get all your cleaning done in literally no time at all. I mean literally. So here's what you do. You find something more interesting to do than cleaning and that way everything is done in no time and you have spent a far more interesting and satisfying day than the one you had in mind. So today at the market I bought fresh raspberries from Waimate and came home and made fresh raspberry jam. The smell makes the whole house smell like - strangely - raspberries. A simple clean and delicious smell now covers any other odours lurking around.
The reason for cleaning is because the hosue is supposed to be going on the market next saturday. On Tuesday I signed up with a very nice real estate agent. On Wednesday he died from a massive heart attack. So Im not exactly sure what will hapen now however the sale of my house pales into insignificance when compared with his demise. Im taking it as one of lifes unexpected events rather than a bad omen.
Still it reminds of how to make the most of each day and it certainly reinforces the avoidance of cleaning.
Here are some shots of the newly painted house. Im really pleased with how it has turned out. Anyone want to buy a house complete with many happy memories of the last six years?
Anyway here's to life of making the most of every day.
