winter clean

so we survived. after four years living in london, my parents paid their first visit over christmas. we spent three days cleaning the flat top to bottom, and trying to make the kitchen under reno as habitable as possible (despite the rubble, disgusting floor and holes in the wall). i have to say when finally all the cleaning was done, i felt like i was living in a hotel. it was bliss. they say renovations are one of the most stressful things you can put your relationship through -- and if that's the case, there's nothing like a clean and tidy house to make you feel like your life is in some kind of order.

amazingly though, after only 2 weeks, the flat already has acquired a layer of dust and grime. hopefully we can keep it relatively tidy. it really does wonders for the sanity.
