It has been a perfect autumn day here in Melbourne – a magnificent blue sky as you only see in Australia, little white fluffy clouds – magic.
I was on sanitizing duty this morning at our Cairo flats complex. So I got my special collapsible green bucket, filled it with hot water, soap and bleach, put on my blue plastic gloves, grabbed a jay cloth and I went to wash down the 2 gates and 1 door and then I washed all of the hand railing – it felt so good when I finished.
I started sanitizing at about 9:00 this morning and walking around the property felt like a little village awakening – there was beautiful jazz being played in 2 flats, the ABC radio was being listened to in a few others and several were brewing coffee – so pretty magical – what a way to start the day.
