It's been a long hot summer,
ending with a huge bang
in the form of ex cyclone Oswald.
That one hurt, my post about it is here.
I am finally back to WOYWW
after what seems years, although it's only months.
Here is my desk today
Yes, I know it's a mess and I wish I could blame the cyclone
but you all know what a grot I am, so there's no point
trying to blame a puff of wind.
On the left in the little wheelie bin are some really cool
little gifts that my wonderful friend in England gave me
when she visited in November last year.
I am a mad Doctor Who fan and these pencils and pen
are just the bees knees.
The painting on my desk is of my new best friend,
the Shark steam cleaner!
I live right by the sea, I couldn't have picked a place with sand,
oh no, I had to live by the mud flats, sticky, gooey, dirty brown,
blow in the wind, mud flats. So you can imagine what my
white walls and white floors house looks like most of the time.
I can never keep up with the housework. In the old days, when I was working,
I had two cleaners come twice a week and it was always clean then,
but retirement and age have caught up with me and
it gets cleaned as much as I can when I can.
That was until I found this little sucker, it is so much fun.
I spent a whole day just going around the house
steam cleaning all of my skirting boards (it's a big house).
I've been cleaning window sills, mirrors, you name it I've steamed it.
You can attach a hose and reach all sorts of places,
usually places that I didn't realise were so dirty,
hey I'm short, what I can't see I don't normally clean.
The only thing I keep forgetting is that steam is hot and travels upwards.
It gets a little hairy when you forget and start to clean with the wand thingy and
aim downwards. I must have the the best steam cleaned arms in town.
But enough of my steamy fun, today I have returned
to What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday
and you've seen what is on my desk,
now may I suggest you have a look at
and see what everyone else
has on their desk today.
Happy desk hopping everyone.
