House Sitting & Refreshing Carpet Time

I’ve just come back from a super busy week of family based Christmas and New Year activities.  Except due to poor health, I had to cut short my stay.    However I did have the delight of staying at the hostesses lovely country house for a couple of weeks prior to Christmas – they were away on vacation and I was happily installed on dog walking and house sitting duty.  Now that’s the kind of job I really love.  I…

Those Poor Carpets – Battered All Year Round

Just at this time of year, when we’ve had the Halloween fun – with the kids rushing in and out with pumpkins to be turned, miraculously and messily, into funny ad frightening lanterns.   Then we run into our dear old Bonfire Night.  I still like the idea of running around with our old narrow that Dad made, on it we plonked our fantastic Guy – also rather more input from Dad than us . . .  this used to bring…

Hotel Cleaning Left Much To Be Desired

Hotel Cleaning Left Much To Be Desired

One of my daughters has been nvited to several weddings this year.  It’s really nice to be wanted and liked enough for these very happy occasions, but the cost on the wallet is rather steep.  Six weddings in one season does rather notch it up to another level.    One of the things that must be taken into account when accepting all these invites is how much will each hotel room be and what will you get for your money.  Two…

Party Food Mayhem Calls For Professioal Carpet Care

Party Food Mayhem Calls For Professioal Carpet Care

There is quite an extended family attached to the house behind mine.  As everyone is so jolly polite to each other, I’m assuming some are half siblings and step families.  There was a massive party there least month.  Masses of food and drink seemed to be piled high on trestle tables under the gazebos and I was amazed how many folk had managed to squeeze into the back garden.  I heard the aftermath too – much cussing and swearing emitted…
