I have friends coming for the week end and am greatly looking forward to it. It will be my first staying guests since I moved into the bungalow.
I thought I ought to do a bit of tidying round in the kitchen today before I put away my Tesco order which I had delivered this morning.
The first thing I did was to empty the fridge and wash it out. In the process I removed the following from the top shelf. Jars of mint sauce, tartare sauce, lazy garlic, Dijon mustard, and horseradish sauce. Oh dear reader, I am ashamed to say that apart from the lazy garlic all were well past their sell-by dates. All jars have been emptied and put into the dishwasher prior to going into recycling.
I then took the drinks bottles off the bottom shelf of the tea trolley - drinks bottles I hear you say. Drink doesn't have a sell by date. But my bottle of Campari said use before 2015!!! so it too went the way of all flesh.
So in the morning it is out with the vacuum cleaner and the spray polish as my cleaning lady is unable to come this week. Not easy for me these days. It is fine getting down onto the carpet to dust the bottom shelf it's just that it is absolutely impossible to get up again.
