Realised that I forgot to tell you about one of my housework habits when this was the hot topic of the last post. Every week I have a ‘make a difference day’. This is when I abandon normal housework and try to make an improvement in each room of the house. It can be something simple like sorting a pile of magazines or straightening books on the book shelf or it might be cleaning a patch of carpet or wall. I try to do something in every room. Anything really that is quick and yet makes a difference to your home. Since I adopted it I have been surprised by how satisfying it can be. Try it.
We had a day out to Somerset on Saturday. The boys wanted to see Concorde at the Fleet Air Arm Museum. The planes didn’t do much for me if I am honest, but I found the pictures of young dishy air men and details of female mechanics in the war fascinating. We called in at Wells cathedral on the way back and I indulged myself in my love of the architecture of these majestic buildings. I reckon I must have been a stone mason in one of my previous lives. Wells is a lovely town too. Even the weather was kind if bitterly cold.
