At the start of last week, Claire and I received a rather alarming email, informing us that the landlord of our house was paying a visit. Shit a brick! We always try to keep our house tidy, but unless you are an ‘obsessive compulsive’ type that cleans the kitchen at 3am and vacuums the front lawn, there are always improvements which can be made in regards to household tidiness. We felt with the equivalent of a royal visit just days away, we had better do some spring cleaning (in December).

It was the last day of my annual leave and Claire’s day off. I had planned on having a well-deserved day of rest, after the previous 9 days I had just taken off work spent doing nothing. The disturbing email changed everything. We cleaned the house from top to bottom, vacuuming all floors, using endless packets of anti-bacterial wipes and disturbingly, becoming intoxicated off bleach fumes. It was hard work, but worth it. All I had to do was keep the house clean until the landlord had come round. That meant not cooking in the kitchen, washing in the shower or doing a poo in the toilet.

The landlord came on Saturday. They seemed happy with how we have kept the house, so I don’t think we will be kicked out onto the streets and be forced to sell The Big Issue anytime soon. If I’m being honest, I don’t think it was the cleaning, but the Christmas tree which impressed them most of all.

Yes, those are rabbits under the tree.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
