So.  I kinda sorta never mentioned it again, but you know the bold plan I announced some months ago involving not living in a pigsty?  Yeah.  Didn’t quite happen.  I think I kept the flat clean for about two days.  Well, clean-ish.  I sunk back into my slothful ways fairly quickly, and kept quiet about the whole thing.  It was okay at the time, as hey – it was my washing up.  It was my dirty laundry.  They were my cockroaches.  We cool, G.

But things changed.  You see, a few months ago, I began living in sin with a certain damn fool who wouldn’t know good music if it bit him on his prominent chin.  Unfortunately, his personal style is distinctly minimalist, while mine is DON’T THROW THAT OUT I MIGHT NEED IT.  He makes beds.  He washes up.  He declutters.  While he’s doing all these important things, I tend to faff about musing on how awesome my coffee table would look if I painted it with chalkboard paint (idea shamelessly stolen from some friends’ most wonderful bathroom).  Never mind the fact that I will never actually do it.  Never mind the fact that it would be a really terrible idea for a coffee table (I do not want chalk dust in my caffeinated beverages, thank you very much).  Ash patiently hangs out the washing while I wave my hands around animatedly talking about how I should fill my Nanna’s old sideboard with thousands of tiny origami stars and attempt to make wholemeal fajitas from scratch.

I am Walter Matthau, even though I don't have a salami, a cigar, or a theory on what Freud might think about either.

It is not quite fair.

For that reason, and for all the reasons listed last time I proposed this foolish endeavour, I am going to have another crack at it.  But I’m a realist.  I am going to take things a week at a time, and report back with any earth-shattering discoveries I may make.  I predict that these blog entries will consist of ‘cleaning is boring’ typed 1000 times in a tiny, ragged font.

Will post my Dr Who roundup tonight.  In the meantime, I have some washing to hang out.
