A politician recently said that women should stay at home and clean behind the fridge. Well today I did. I also cleaned the tops of the kitchen units.
This is NOT me by the way!
Question 1. How often do you clean the tops of your kitchen cupboards?
a) Once a week?
b) Once a year?
c) Once every 5 years ?
If you have been reading this blog over the years you will have noticed that I don’t like housework., so b,c or,d is probably me. There are far better things to occupy your time. But the Church is paying for a new kitchen to be put in the Manse, and I was asked to clear it. Most of the contents are piled in the Dining Room, and every time I want to cook I have to rummage in boxes. On Saturday, we are moving out for a week; so today I really got down to business.
I moved in 6 months after The Rev. took the post here, so I had only added a few things to the cupboards. Dismantling them I found all sorts of treasures that I didn’t know we had. Also ,how many bags of S.R flour do I need? They must have kept moving to the back and I lost them. Bags of just about everything seemed to have leaked.
While I was busy the Session Clerk popped in, I noticed him give me a strange look. After he had gone, when I looked in the mirror I noticed my hair contained a mixture of flour ,cous- cous and chocolate drops which I had swept off the shelf. After a couple of hours scrubbing grease combined with dog hair and dust (Eeww.) from the tops of very high cupboards I was knackered, so I got some lunch and thought I’d have a sit down and watch the telly. I just got comfy when the Undertaker turned up, (also builder, carpenter etc.) . They had decided to start early by taking a wall down, so I think I’ll go out with the dogs and leave them too their banging and scraping. Dust and plaster is flying all over the kitchen I just scrubbed. I should have left it and let them take it down greasy!
I vow to keep my new kitchen spotless…. who am I kidding?
