He probably thought we were a bit odd given that I had a bucket of mop heads in the kitchen sink but I really don’t care, they were sitting in a bucket of disinfectant solution to wipe over any mishaps with the toilet training. They are in the sink to keep them away from Mischief and Mayhem, because while they may not drown each other they absolutely will spread the water over every surface imaginable.

But the thing is the house is clean, tidy, put together and organised. We had clean dishes for his lunch and the table, benches and chairs were clear.

This is a first for me, I like it! So worth the work to keep the house up to standard.
