Cleaning the cobwebs away








I've taken a few shots for you while cleaning the thick layer of dust off my dressing table...I've had the flu the past few days and the dust isn't making me any better...so this morning I decided to bite the bullet and actually clean it off.

Crikey! It does look clutter doesn't it in these photos...and this is after I had packed a few things away. There are no such things as bare surfaces in this house.

The last shot is the little tortoise cane table next to my bed. I will show Mr T's side of the bed later, I haven't got that far cleaning yet....

We have a long weekend as Monday is Canberra day. Since we live in NSW and work in the Canberra (another state, ACT) then we are lucky enough to have the public holiday but the kids have to go to school as they are in NSW...make sense? Bliss! A free day for Mr T and me, well between 9-3 that is...just have to get rid of this crappy flu.

Have a good one!
