I was in the office today and looked at the built in wardrobe. One section of it was neat and tidy ,the other section I am ashamed to say was an absolute muddle! I decided then and there it was time for a tidy up or mini spring clean. To attack the top shelves a chair was required to stand on. I did not want to use the office chair on wheels. Imagine the scenario if I did and the jolly thing took off. Hubby said wisely best not to use that or you will go base over apex if you fall! Cheeky so and so! I then went and got a chair off the back patio heeding his advice! I emptied all the shelves, threw out lots of things we did not need or use anymore and washed and cleaned each shelf with good old jiff and a fair bit of elbow grease as well. Now I can look at that built in cupboard and feel quite pleased that it looks nice and tidy once again. It really does give one a good feeling. Now let me see which room am I going to attack tomorrow? Hmmmmm maybe the bathroom!

    • I agree; invest in a good step ladder! We have a great little step ladder and it is perfect for getting up into places. I just don’t trust chairs and their strength.
