Steeleye Span and My Clean House
Well, Steeleye Span anyway. I know I promised House Pics, and Kitty Pics, and a Clean House. ( had Houseguests last week, MAN did they trash the place!!! ) ( I slay myself! ) But I thought I would hop on and do the first part of this post from work, because I am having the most wonderful time...
We acquired a bunch of New Steeleye Span. I had no idea, hadn't checked in with them since their album TIME in, ye gads, 1996 (Which I loved) and I've been listening to the new ones all day long. There is one album called PRESENT which is two cd's of their music from the previous 30 of so years, only re-recorded, completely, in 2002. Aside from the fact that recording technology has improved beyond belief in the last, say 30 years, I love all these songs from the past much, much better. They are now much closer to the way I always heard them in my head.
Way more Oyster Band than, well the early music was kind of Folk-y, but now they have TEETH. With FANGS. Now they are living on my side of the street. ( The one where all the lights are burnt out, to quote Steve Brust...)
I'm home now, and while I have not exactly achieved CLEAN in the Spooky House ( HEY! We LIKE Cobwebs!) I have, well, one room clean. It's the sunroom , and I have decided rather than clean the rest of the House, I shall simply just live in it. With the lights out no-one will see all the shredded cat toys and bits I missed. The room has computer, tv, ipod, violen, guitar and phone. What else does one need? ( yes, a piano, I know, but I am not exactly brilliant at piano and anyway there is no room. )
(tho someone did give me a piano, actually, but we have to wait until spring, as my Sherpa Guide, who gets me thru the snow into my House every night says No Way can we get a piano thruough..)
I have just, all for you my dears, bloodied my legs letting Madame Mim climb me and got a picture of it, (a LOT of her Softpaws have come off, as soon as I can have a couple people over, with safety gear on, this will be remidied) They will have to wait until tomorrow to show up here as I seem to have lost my Thingie that lets one put them on the computer.
As I seem to have lost half the bits of my vaccum. And I manage someone else's life for a living??????
I will go and take before pictures for you....
Here is the dinning room before..
And here it is after...
( I love this. Haven't actually TAKEN the pictures, and it is by no means certain I will stop playing on the computer and clean it up, nor certain I will be able to post the pictures, but hey, it's like virtual housework!)
Otherwise I would have to stopping blogging and get some work done.
Love, blood and Housework,
