Highs and Lows for the week of 26/6/11.

Lion's Head from Camps Bay Beach.

Highs:
- We got our new cottage as of the July 1st.
- We’ve figured out how to make the most of our new space.

- We started watching Prison Break from the beginning- never knew I was missing out!

- I started dancing Belly Dance on Saturdays at a dance.

- I finished a new crochet project- I’ll show you next week!



Can you guess what it is?


Lows:
- The previous tenant wasn’t completely moved out when we stopped to walk through. 

- The previous tenant did not clean at all. She had a maid and I wasn’t sure who to be madder at for the mess, her of the tenant! 

- Cleaning up other people’s messes (when they’re not family or when you’re  not getting paid) for it sucks!

- Hubby spent over 20 minutes cleaning a small dirty rug by whacking it with a stick and then vacuuming it.


- I basically “detailed” the cottage’s fridge and freezer today.

We will miss this park across from our house...
EWWW!!

- Worst of all I found MOLD growing on my favoriteflip flops!!! And on 6 of our back packs/ duffle bags/ purses!!! We had no idea that the rainy, humid weather here would do such things! They all got washed. I hope that fixes it- is there something I should do specifically? Any advice appreciated because mold creeps me out!

No longer my "dressy" flip flops.

I'm participating in Life, Crafts, and Whatever's Highs and Lows.

Yuck! Your right, nothings worse than cleaning up after someone else. Plus not getting paid for it. I look forward to seeing your crochet.

Arg! When we moved into our house last year it was disgusting! I spent ages cleaning it. Cleaning other people's dirt is so gross. And we were acquainted with the previous owners. Lets just say they went from people we liked to people we'd like to punch in the head!

Just found your blog through Highs and Lows!
