From 1 to 1.30 sharp

Prudence, having no small experience of such things, is pretty sure that demanding a tenant dust her window sills is in breach of the Residential Tenancies Act.

So, also, is criticising the quality of one's vacuuming.

This led, variously to stamping of feet, mutters of annoyance, dark threats unlikely to be acted upon, frantic checking of bank balances, serious conversations and A BIG DECISION.

And thus the rounds of home opens begin.

And, if nothing else, it is amusing to note the number of people who subscribe to the view that feature walls are haute home couture. And the colours they've used on said walls.


  1. As long as it doesn't have a picture of Pavarotti in the front garden I don't think you can complain.

  2. Ahhh.... feature walls. I remember back in the 90s when they hit their peak popularity. My mother was (is?) all over that particular fad!

    And to criticise one's vacuuming so soon after the acquisition of a new vacuum cleaner... not cool!
