We have carpet in the three bedrooms and I generally keep it clean by vacuuming regularly and a sprinkle of bicarb soda on any grubby marks. However, I get it cleaned every 2 – 3 years and today was the day.
We removed everything from the 3 rooms apart from the cast-iron bed frame in the main bedroom. The other rooms are completely bare.
Moving everything out of 3 rooms makes you realise how much stuff you have. Here is some of it stacked in the study.
The two chests of drawers fitted in the hallway just past the bedroom.
The mattress and base were in the bathroom and more stuff in the living room as well. Smaller items found temporary homes in the wardrobes.
It was a sunny day and I took the opportunity to wash and air all of the bedding.
The carpet is still a bit damp underfoot so we have re-assembled and made our bed and plugged in the alarm clock but other than that the rest of the furniture and effects will not be returned to their rightful homes until tomorrow evening.
I have cleaned all of the louvres in the living room (79 of them) and The Duke washed down the outside of the house and cleaned all of the outdoor furniture.
Blog posts may be a bit hit and miss for the next couple of weeks as we are really busy. In between full-time work, preparations for our overseas trip in 11 days ( who’s counting?), a milestone birthday celebration for The Duke, guests arriving on Thursday and preparing the house for the housesitters who will be here while we are away there is not a lot of time for blogging.
What’s happening at your place?
whew, sounds like you have a lot of wonderful things on your plate! Best wishes to the Duke on his birthday. Safe travels!
Thanks, Zoe. The time has come – birthday celebration went really well.
We are at the airport waiting our flight to London.
