Wet wet wet

Came in this morning to find water spraying out of a pipe in the boiler. The back room soaked…. Company accounts, old computers, exercise bike and print copies of our work all sodden. Maybe it’s a sign… we need to have a good old Spring clean. I mean… look at the state of the place.

Fresh Friday …

Yesterday, just as I was leaving the office, I had ‘a moment’ and said “shall have a bit of a clean up in the morning?”. It was agreed that I would go to the shops on the way in to buy essential cleaning things and we would give ourselves half an hour to get the office shipshape and shiny. Between us it doesn’t take long. James gets out Henry and vacuums up all the cobwebs. Daniel scrubs the lime-scaled bathroom. Lauren bleaches the kitchen and I empty sticky bins and clean the coffee stained desks. You get the picture? It’s horrid because we tend to let it reach ‘a stage’ before we tackle it.

We weren’t exactly keen but it had to be done …

Actually, I did go to the shops, but bumped into two friends and chatted for about 20 minutes. As I was paying, I saw Lauren in shades walk by and not particularly quickly. We arrived to find James and Daniel almost finished.


Thanks boys, well done.


Bigtop cleans up its act

We’re clean! We’ve been scrubbed and polished. Polished and dusted. Dusted and vacuumed.

Three reasons.

It’s horrible living in squalor.The scum rose to the surface so slowly we didn’t notice until it was too late.

Amy is back tomorrow after her six weeks summer holiday and we didn’t want her to be shocked by the mess.

We didn’t want you to think that we were dirty and disorganised.
