Oh the joys of having small children around. It can be alarming just how quickly a nine month old baby can eject herself around the room – from just sitting noisily in a bouncy chair where the tray could be wiped down constantly, the sofa and all she can survey have suddenly become one grubby and germ filled playground!
At this point we realised much more cleaning needed to be done – the baby had already found sticky bits of paper down the sides of the sofa – thanks to grandpa and his toffee habit. then there was the incident with the hot cup of tea on the edge of the coffee table. No harm done to either apart from the pool of hot wet liquid rapidly sinking through the carpet. Once baby and all her stuff had gone, I booked a professional total house clean so I could keep it pretty clean in between visits.
