The Great Spring Clean

It’s getting to that time again…

I wanted to make one big list of things to do, so that I can either spend a couple of days blasting through it, or check things off as they get done. Now we have a young pup and the kitchen is like a piddle paddling pool, I suspect it may be the latter.

Here’s a copy of my own list, to give you some ideas for your own home…
