If you are looking for me I will be here...


and then here...

I think I have more dirt on me than the house, which is a good thing.

I have spent the day doing the BIG clean at the Reno, the cleaners are coming!!( its a blonde thing to clean before the cleaners arrive!) and the carpet is being installed tomorrow. I have been taking all the covers of everything, a dirty job but I love it ....I can finally see everything coming together...

  1. Oh, how exciting, Cate......this is the best bit, isn't it?...hope we are going to see it all come together....the cleaning before the cleaners come? Definitely a blonde thing (I'm blonde!!!)I couldn't possibly have a permanent cleaner...I would have to go round the whole house and give it a good clean before she/he came !!! Bit of a waste of money. XXXX

  2. Oh honey what a day, you so deserve a soak in that magnificent bathroom and a massage, mmmm :)

  3. Yep me too... the blonde thing.. and being blonde! So how funny.. my project manager was just telling me his wife is a nutter cause she cleaned before the cleaners came.. I would too!! haha x Julie

  4. It is a brunette thing as well! When we renovated Maison de Poitiers, I cleaned the house everyday after the artisans left, knowing full well that they would be back the following day making a mess again.

    I used to have a cleaners in London and I used to clean before they came :-(

    Now I have to do it all myself, which has taken some time to get used to after having people to do everything for me in Dubai.

    Now where did i put that mop?

    Bon courage and happy soaking!
