After hibernating for 12 years, the Snake will soon slither into our home with a big hiss. Have you started your spring cleaning?
In the old days, the family would pick a day or two and everyone would help out. From the floor to the ceiling, every space and corner would be cleaned. Every square cm of the floor would be scrubbed. Old and broken things would be discarded.
Nowadays I think it would probably be the job of the wife and/or maid with some help from the husband and children. It would also not be a big affair.
Well, I have already made a start - clearing and tidying things on my table and in the drawers and cupboards. Quite amazing that I had so many things to throw away.
I guess people are like that. They put things aside thinking they would need them in future or they are reluctant to throw away things they are nostalgic about and after 10 years the things are still there gathering dust. And so things accumulate.
