We’re off work this week and have a list of things to do at home as well as a list of places we want to go and see. We decided to start the week by getting two massive chores done – cleaning the carpets and cleaning the kitchen (you know, inside the cupboards and everything). So off we went to Johnson’s this morning and hired a Rug Doctor. £20 for 24 hours wasn’t bad but they make their money on the detergent (which smells just like Fairy Liquid) – £39 or something like that in total. But it’s worth it because our cream carpets in our hall/stairs/landing and lounge now look fab again… all that grubbyness from just walking around the house (even with no shoes on) has gone.
13/09/10: Carpets shampooed, kitchen sparkly clean… the rest of the week is ours 🙂
