Uääähhh, returning from holiday these days is not quite the same as returning when we lived in Brunei. There we had a full-time maid, who got bored when we were gone and cleaned and organized the whole house, down to folding all the socks in the sock drawer the same way.
Instead I had the pleasure of coming back to this, full baskets with clothes to be ironed..:
... a fridge that needed a complete clean..:
... all the Christmas stuff that needed to be packed away..:
... and a dog that was stinky and needed a bath, suitcases that needed unpacking (well obviously), a back garden that needed a big tidy up, and a house in general need of vacuuming and cleaning.
Fun and games.
