I got up early this morning so that I could try to finish packing and clean up the flat in time for 4pm when the woman from estates was coming to check it. I spent the whole morning in a panic, and scrubbed everything till it gleamed. My hands are red raw from so much scrubbing! My bathroom is no longer a shrine to the god of brown residue. Now it is the temple of the shining tile. At 4pm, she arrived. I was frantically trying to finish cleaning the kitchen, when she caught me by surprise! Damn! She came in and began surveying the room with her eagle eyes.... "Mmmmm, 4 chairs, table, desk...... yep, everything seems to be here. Good luck with your packing! :)" and with that, she was gone! I don't know whether to be ecstatically pleased or horribly annoyed! She didn't even look once at my gleaming bathroom! Not even a glance at my spotless kitchen floor! I guess I was thinking I was still in halls of residence at university, where they really DO check for even the slightest sign of dirt, and then charge you for the hire of a contract cleaner! Anyway, at least now I can relax a bit and concentrate on packing instead of cleaning! I can't wait till it's all finished. I've been throwing away so much good stuff. I feel so awful throwing away good food, but who's going to want half a bottle of soya sauce etc etc?
My nose is so messed up from all the dust. I can't stop sneezing. In fact i can feel one coming on now........hang on.........ahhhhhhh.......ahhhhh.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.........oh f**k it! there's nothing worse than an Ahhh with no Choo!!!! It's one of the most frustrating things ever! It's like sex with no orgasm! I feel so cheated. Hey I've just thought of a new expression! "You're all ah and no choo!" i.e. you never follow thru on what you say you'll do. pretty cool huh! I think i'll start using it and see if it catches on. I admit it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but what the hell, it's worth a try. :)
