Tuesday Natter

Today I did one of those totally pointless household chores, I retrieved "Dirty Harry" (that's my vacuum cleaner - have you ever cleaned one of those suckers - pun intended - out) hence the name, Dirty Harry lives in the dungeon he got banished there the day that he sucked with one end and spat it out the other, someone didn't replace the bag properly, so to the dungeon he went, I think he enjoys the dungeon as it's so difficult to retrieve him and he spends most of his time there doing nothing the lazy sucker.

 

I digress Dirty Harry and I had a lovely time, chasing spiders, spider webs and spider babies all over the joint, we hit the ceiling, the walls, the skirting and even under the bed, I took him outside (just for a change of scenery) and sucked up all evidence of spider occupation around my front door and entry.  Eventually Dirty Harry burped and told me he's had enough and needed to be emptied, Dirty Harry wasn't the only one who'd had enough, but I still had to remove the spiders, webs and baby spiders from around the front of the house, which is the only part I care about on the outside of the house, after all it's the part everyone see's.

 

This is a totally pointless task as I said before, there was survivors of my mad killing spree and I noticed they'd hung a sign out on my mail box which read "To Let, ceiling, walls, skirting boards, under the bed, a couple of warm dark cupboards and a dungeon that rarely get's opened a small payment of spider droppings is all that is required".

 

Ciao

from the lady that "downsized" to a bigger house, who has too much time on her hands.

      Ah sweet pea it’s autumn here and I do this totally pointless task every month at least living among the gum trees has it’s drawback as far as spiders are concerned.

        hate the spider dance we do that with bringing wood in to burn, we have come up with a system where we only bring wood in as we burn.. helps does not eliminate

          There is only one way that I think maybe we could eliminate the spider dance and that’s living in outer space, but knowing my luck a mating pair would slip through

    You are so funny, Sharn! Such a creative way to describe a mundane task.

      It’s Autumn cleaning for me – I hope the spiders don’t find you, if they do you’ll have a war on your hands

          I had some really, really big ones. It’s not so much the spiders I hate it’s their little black poos on my white ceramic tiles that I hate the most

            I’m not overly fond of walking into a web unexpectedly, usually in the dark.

              I solved that one years ago, you just let the tallest person walk first, being only 5’ 2" tall (or should I say small ) just about the whole world is taller than me

    The garden has been designed and painted with beautiful colors and guile of the scenes. The prospects of the pay for essays are also highlighted for the progressive and intensified maintained ambit for contentment. The motion is offered for the garden to be invoked for entertainment of the citizens.
