A Sunny Day & A Spring Clean

Welcome to Undomestic Diva, what a wonderful name!  Lovely to meet you :)

Today has been wonderfully sunny and uplifting, still a cold wind, mind, but sunny.  I was in the mood for a bit of spring cleaning so I decided to start on the kitchen.  The worktops had everything moved and the surfaces sprayed with Dettol and items replaced in a tidy fashion.  I thought about doing a cupboard, not too taxing I think.....

Firstly, I needed to strip off a bit as cleaning is hard work for me now.  Don't get too excited though it was just

I removed everything from the cupboard then using just these gave it a jolly good spray and wipe down.....

I put a few things into the bag for the CS (if I haven't used them in 5 years then surely I never will?)but this little Susie Cooper cup and saucer, well, I do love it and use it for my mint sauce so it must stay......

I then re-lined the shelves with some gift wrap I had.  I feel it's a bit old fashioned to do this but the alternative is scratched shelves when OH drags stuff out instead of lifting it up so it's a necessary evil.  There is actually room now to store my electric steamer at the back and my slow cooker at the front so that I can reach it easily.  That's tidied my worktop up a bit too.....

Right, time for a nice salad lunch (it MUST be Spring!) then an hour of this.....

before I start again...

Tonight's dinner will be Quorn shepherd's pie with lots of steamed veg so not too much effort involved.  I do love a nice, quiet Sunday :)

What have you done with yourself today?  Are you in spring cleaning mode?  The clocks go forward next weekend so we can look forward to lighter evenings from then on.

Thanks everso for popping in x


  1. We spent most of the morning in our car, but arriving home in sun shine is lovely, and a wander around my garden, bliss. It feels so good when you have sorted when the sun is shinning.

    1. yes, A bit of sunshine really does you good. Glad you had a lovely day x

  2. Well done on starting the spring cleaning, I feel in spring cleaning mode, I did a little on Friday, today we were up 5.30 to have a look at a big carboot,we had a roast and a bottle of wine and will be spending today relaxing, bit tired x

  3. You have just reminded me that my mum always put shelf linings on. :) We have had a lovely day, lunch with a friend for her birthday followed by a walk on the beach and then home to wash out the greenhouse.

    1. My mum did too ( and my nan :) Oh how I envy the walk on the beach.....

  4. It looks like you have done a good job! You have been very methodical about it, going through the kitchen bit by bit, and taking out stuff from cupboards so you can spray it. That is the best way to go about it. Thanks for sharing!
