    Ooh dear, Val. That was a silly thing to do, but it's easy to forget if you aren't in pain at the time. Thank goodness you managed to get up or you might have been sitting there all day :shock: My kneeling days are over as my knees can't take any pressure, so I've got it off to a fine art doing the cleaning with mops/ long-handled feather dusters etc. What I can't reach doesn't get done, I'm afraid. I read that you don't notice the dust after four years anyway. :grin:

    Knees are a no-no, Val, however temporarily good they may feel. (But you just worked that out, didn't you?) It was shoulders that I opted to knacker yesterday as the bathroom, loo & kitchen floors all needed a wash and Mr SW doesn't understand the concept of corners or awkward bits behind the loo and washbasin pedestals and towel rail. My floors look lovely: my shoulders feel less so.

    Joan - the 4 yr dust thing. My younger son was a great believer in this. I can tell you, you do when it gets up your nose.
