Domestic achievements and tasks.


This week is going OK so far.  Yesterday, I managed to get all of the dogs’ bedding through the wash – the hall was starting to smell very doggy, and I knew the job needed doing – and I did it!  Five loads of washing done, dried, and the dogs’ beds made up again, and sweet smelling – that is a pretty good achievement, I think.  I’m not sure the dogs agree, though –  Coco, the brown lab, was very suspicious when I put the first lot of her bedding back into her bed – it was all warm from the tumble dryer, and I thought that would be lovely for her to snuggle up in, but she got in, had a suspicious sniff or two, and then went to lie in the den!

The next job that really needs doing is vacuuming through the downstairs – there is a coating of dog hair everywhere, and it shows up especially badly in the kitchen and utility room, where some kind person decided white would be a good colour for the tiles!!  It’s not a good colour – it shows up every single dog hair and mark – and I am not a good enough housewife to keep it looking clean.  I do know, though, that I can vacuum through the downstairs pretty quickly, if I don’t bother too much about the little out-of-the-way nooks and crannies – and I know I ought to do it today.  We shall see.  The kitchen needs a clean too, and that is still waiting to be done.

I don’t think I am ever going to be a domestic goddess!
