The washing is still ongoing, especially after the short break we took over Easter. My husband currently has a need for collared shirts so the washing and ironing will have to continue apace each weekend in order to keep up with demand... Still, the Formula 1 season is well underway now and that allows me the TV-watching time to iron as much as I have stamina for.
I have booked a week off work in May to spend a few days decluttering the house before too many more arachnids find it. There is a digital arts event in Wolverhampton at the weekend too, wouldn’t you guess?
However this past weekend was a triumph of accomplishment. On Saturday, my husband and I made it to the barbers’ to have our hair cut, then went into town to visit the bank and a couple of shops. On our return home, I decided to deep clean the bathroom. Another load of washing was stuck safely in the machine, and I spent the next two hours up a ladder scrubbing the ceiling clean of mould (because we have an artex ceiling in the bathroom and the mould loves it!) plus washing the walls, tiles and furniture. On Sunday I finished the washing up before dragging my stiff and achy body back into the bathroom to sweep the floor and finish the areas I’d not managed to make it to already before heading off in the direction of the store to meet my husband for almost 90 minutes of shopping.
When we staggered back home, duly laden with ten days’ worth of food shopping, I was flabbergasted to discover that the article I had uploaded here minutes before leaving for the shopping trip had been awarded an Editor’s Choice award. Thanks Chef! Even more impetus to continue to write here!
I’m currently attempting to regain entry to the website I found which would take my old clothes and tech items for money, as all the passwords I tried don’t appear to be valid any more. I submitted a support ticket last night but haven’t had a reply yet. I have time, as there may well be more contributions for them by the time I’m done with my decluttering in a month or so. I’d be happier if I could raise a reply from anyone in their customer services department, mind. I’ve just sent them a tweet, which works a charm for many other companies. As they’re a UK firm, I shall try ringing them if no other avenues work.
