Nothing to boast about for anybody but me but I am in the process of hoovering the stairs.

Childhood abuse has made me afraid of the hoover and, with my total loss of plot, I have not been able to face doing a lot of things. I did have to take everything I did down to all it's component parts. Even had to cut my chips in three and eat my peas seperately for a while.

Today I have started to hoover the stairs so I am feeling quite proud. Have stopped in the middle because my back hurt and it is better to rest it than to push on and frighten myself out of doing anything else.

Well done!!
My stairs need hoovering.
...but I'm just too lazy - though, in my defence, I have a horrendous cough/cold.

Even I'm fed up with the sound of my constant coughing :-|
