Have just come in for a rest. Have blitzed my front garden, only a semi-circle of earth with 6 shrubs in it , but it somewhat gets overlooked. Even swept where son's car usually stands, so it is sweetpaper, crisppackets, everything under the sun, free.
That's a shame about your OH Nivlac. You could be spending a pleasant Bank Holiday together. Long, long ago, you used to have saturday girls and then it was weekend staff which was beneficial all round. Of course, big stores got greedy and found it was more profitable to just use the staff they had and make them work at weekends with time off in lieu. Now, it's part of their contract and there's nothing they can do about it. When 2 of my offspring were young and I was poor, I did take on a cleaning job and my Mum looked after them for 3 hours. Talk about slave labour. Wanted, what I considered, a total spring clean every week. I never went back.
Artjak, my neighbours are used to seeing me gardening in my dressing gown. Always put my gardening shoes on though.
Right, rested so onwards and upwards.
