Dear Readers,

Time to get the rubber gloves on! It’s all about Spring cleaning in the Cooper household this month and I’ve got a list as long as my Marigolds to get through! Cleaning the inside of the windows – horrid job, but oh how wonderful to be able to ‘see outside’ again. Mine can get a bit mouldy around the frames where the windows have been firmly closed over the last few months, so hot soapy water to all woodwork (don’t forget skirting boards and door frames people). My linen cupboard needs a good sort out too. The towels are ok, but the bed linen has just been thrown in haphazardly and now the doors hardly shut. I do try to keep on top of things – honest.

I’m thinking about getting myself a house-coat like my nan used to wear. Sounds like a great business start-up idea to me – think of all the lovely fabrics and colours you could have – not to mention button choices! I really need to learn how to use my sewing machine. I’m going to have to get myself down to the West Country Embroiderer’s meetings.

I also need to commit to doing the Pilates class on a Thursday. My sister benefits enormously, and I do have problems with my back and knees on occasion. I’m sure that building up ‘core’ strength would help to take the pressure off the weaker areas. I’ve got no excuse not to go – ‘it’s too cold to go out’ is a terrible excuse, and I feel shame :(.

Not to be missed this month is the Cheriton Bishop Primary School Community Fun Event from 2pm on Thursday 5th March – World Book Day. More info can be found on page 17.

And then… April showers are just around the corner… What with all the Spring Cleaning and wet weather, I really must put my mop bucket to full use…
