What is it about cleaning the lounge room windows...

... that makes all the other windows in the house look dirty?

I've been avoiding looking at the lounge windows for a ... little while because they were disgustingly dirty. To the point that if I knew visitors were coming I would close the curtains part way to hide the worst of them.

Yesterday I washed them and they now sparkle. I got a lovely rush of pleasure this morning as I opened the curtains because they were clean.

But by this evening instead of basking in the glory of clean, shiny windows I can't help but notice how dusty the ones in the office are.

And our bedroom.

For that matter the windows in the rumpus/dining/kitchen that my Beloved cleaned not that long ago aren't that great either.

And although I hardly ever go into the spare bedrooms, they are probably worse than any of the others.

Why is it that housework is only obvious when it doesn't get done? Chance that I'll get around to the other windows this weekend?

... Approximately None.

Yep, that's the thing about cleaning. Once you get started, it's like a bag of chips - you see all the other dust (chips) and have to keep on cleaning. Ughhhh!

Aleta, I love it - If life is like a box of chocolates, then cleaning's like a bag of chips!
