Unfortunately my decision to wash the kitchen floor every morning failed today and it was only Day 3 but perhaps it was a bit ambitious. If only the hens wouldn't come in and shake after their dustbath, and if only the dog didn't come in and shake after his walk. I don't let the ducks and their adorable little webbedy feet come in to the kitchen so it's not as bad as it could be.
I'm in my usual pre-Summer School state of low-grade panic about going away but this is my last one so I really want to enjoy it. I was telling Charles all the things I was worried about and I realised afterwards that I hadn't mentioned anything about the children!
