Housework?!?! & Post

As you know I would much rather play in the garden than have anything to do with housework!!!! On the Potting Shed (link on the right) they have started a new housekeeping thread and each day the moderator has set us a 10 -15 minute task! So I thought, I'm sure I can find 10 -15 mins each day and even if you really hate housework its over quickly. Today we had to wash the front door and frame! So here is the before photo

and here is the after...

Can you see any difference??? No neither could I!! But hey ho! its done now, but it will need a coat of paint this year!! As I had the bucket out the front I took the opportunity to wash round the window as well

now after...

I don't know if you can see it, but there is definately a difference here! We paid alot of money to have these put in, I should have sanded and painted them last year but I really, really hate this job. I HAVE to do it this year, so when the warmer weather starts give me a nudge to remind me and accept no excuses!!!

I recieved this in the post yesterday

even if my neighbour, his daughter hasn't the common courtesey to thank me, he has!! I wonder if she would be upset if I invited him round for lunch?? I'm sure she would be, so I will do it anyway!!!! lol!!

Right can't spend all day on the computer, bloggin, e-mailing and chatting to kathryn, I must go and do something!! Back Later!!

What a lovely door you have! And now all freshened up for spring. A sweet letter from from someone who was really glad you were there that day.

So nice to be appreciated. And I too love your sunshine yellow door.

I have been reading the housework task too - and had already done those tasks set so far last week - so instead - as it is raining - I will clean my least favourite job, the big patio windows.

But bet your sweet dollar that as soon as I do they will be christened by a big bird - guaranteed!

Hi Libby,

I like your front door, very Rosamunde Pilcher. For some unknown reason most front doors of the houses she describes in her books have yellow front doors.

Your windows are positively sparkling! Good work!

And that was a very nice letter you received for a job well done.
