    Oh Mig, that was a sticky kitchen wash and no mistake. :( I expect the language was colourful :wink: and it's always easy to be wise after the event. More haste less speed is always true, I now try to stop myself from taking short cuts because they always seem to lead to more work. :? Take it easy today, you deserve the rest. DD

    Oh not a sugary, fizzy drink :o They're the worst. You keep sticking to the floor long after you think you've cleaned it - for the third time :roll:

    Mr SW is hopeless at door closing, including the fridge one. I could do with a little message that plays after it's been open for more than 1/2 minute or so. This summer's been a nightmare. And guess who has to keep defrosting the frozen food compartment?

    Would it be worth getting a small one just for the humira? I'm sure I'd have to if I were on injected meds.

    As for what to do for the rest of the week? (SW looks at her kitchen......and wonders :wink: )

    Ohhh Mig! Not Iron Bru!! Orange and sticky!! We have all dropped things due to Arther but I have to say I haven't dropped a can of pop yet!! I have dropped a plastic bottle of Cherry Cola but luckily no redecorating kitchen!! I do have 4 cans of Monster a week which I treat myself to one every other day. (I'm seriously addicted to Monster energy drink!!) And I keep my fingers and toes crossed I never drop one!!

    When this kind of thing happens in my house (regularly) I fantasise about a steam mop. Hope you have got those feet up and are doing nothing

    Was it you, mig? Have you secretly been in our kitchen?

    I ask because this afternoon Mr SW came home with a bottle of Schloer (He's decided to go on the wagon for a month but that sounds like a horrible wagon to me) and it promptly ended up in bits and drips on the kitchen floor. He's mopped and cleaned but it still feels tacky. I think beer is safer :wink:

    Hope you are ok after your ordeal mig , it has to be one of the stickiest sugeriest drinks around. When I worked in catering we used to use syrup for soft drinks which was dispensed through a machine with carbonated water. We had a wedding on and I went into the cellar to change a keg to be met by a sea of syrup :o a bag of coke syrup had burst :shock: I think it took us a month to get the stickiness off the floor and corridor. xx

    I have a steam mop for the kitchen and bathroom floors - it was half-price (£25) in the January sales, it's made for the orange supermarket chain. I wouldn't be without it, it makes a tricky job a work of moments. DD
