It's like the No. 41 bus!

No post for ages, then three come at once (or follow shortly upon one another)!

Casting about for a job to go on the 'list of successes', this morning I hit upon the idea of giving the kitchen a good clean. So I got on my new stepladder, and began by scrubbing the tops of the upper cabinets. I am not a housewife, and when it comes to household chores, my usual philosophy to doing them can be described as "out of sight is out of mind"; so after I raised my eyebrows, I grit my teeth, and set to. I finished the cabinets, mopped the floor, scrubbed the splashback tiles, cleaned the work surfaces, scrubbed the cooker, cleaned the microwave...I'm on a roll!

I also plan to clean and wax the parquet flooring - I can't remember when I last performed that task, it must be some years. It's such a hassle, as it involves clearing the rooms of all their furniture, leaving it piled up in the bedroom while waiting for the treated floors to dry. I used to do it once a year until someone told me I was a fool and to wait till one could actually see and appreciate the difference. I think one might, now.

I'm meeting Mum to go see a film. I was hoping we could go see The Dark Knight Rises, but Mum wasn't keen and so we've decided on The Intouchables instead. Apparently, it's won a bunch of Césars -- which hopefully translates to an eminently watchable film.
