Sense of acheivement

In the past couple of days, I have:

  • Cleaned the bathroom, some parts of which haven’t been cleaned since we moved in at the beginning of July.
  • Mopped the bathroom floor for the first time since we moved in.
  • Fixed the lock on the bathroom door that got broken several weeks ago. Yay for privacy.
  • Helped out with a full week’s worth of washing up (the sink was broken for a few days and things started to pile up).
  • Washed the bathmat, again for the first time since we moved in.
  • Cleaned the kitchen worksurfaces.

That said, my housemates have also done their part, and as such the kitchen is much tidier. We also now have a gate outside the house again, which confused me immensely when I came home on Thursday.
And in other news I think I’m coming down with another cold. On the plus side it’ll only be the second one since September – this time last academic year I was on my third cold and had also had the ‘flu too. Universities really are a gay bar for chest infections.


  1. *claps*
    Well done.

  2. I like the appropriate ads on the right, they seem to scream:
    “If you’re lazier than Neil, come buy a new sink rather than clean your old one!”

  3. LOL 🙂 . Sometimes Google ads have a habit of doing that.
