Maintenance Monday

I admit that I find these challenges great fun and I notice that Gina has started one called 'Maintenance Monday' on her blog, 'Arizona Mama's Musings'. This is about doing cleaning tasks on a Monday, the ones that never get done. I like her funny description of cleaning an air vent, eventually ending up with step ladders and a toothbrush!
When I was on Frances' blog tonight looking at her pictures of Cyprus she asked whether anyone could see a helicopter. I kept seeing many dark shapes in the sky all over the place until I looked more closely at my computer and noticed it was very smudgy, probably due to excessive Runescape use, pointing out fellow knights and plotting tactics and so on. It doesn't help there are usually chewies and chocolate to hand.
I never clean the computers as I am worried about damaging this very expensive equipment. I haven't really thought about it but I suppose at the back of my mind is the fact that the technology of the computers is so good that this sort of spills over onto the keyboard pads, that they are sort of self-cleaning, or at least made out of a everlastingly clean polymer. However, tonight I interrupted the game to give it a good clean.
Hey Gina, don't worry about your air vents. There looks like there's a fly on my table!

Yay! Good one, Bev! Now I'm eyeballing the smudges on my monitor. *grins*

I love the idea of Maintenance Mondays! And thank you Bev for pointing out Gina's excellent idea.

I missed this last Monday (and God forbid I should a maintenance item on any day but Monday). That's OK. That will give me six days to try to find something that needs maintenance. (HAR HAR HAR)

Does maintenance include all housework - I do hope so.
Unfortunately I didn't read this until today and I will be away next Monday - oh dear, suppose I can't do any maintenance at all for at least a fortnight. tee hee

Hi Beverly,

Great idea - but I will probably never do it - but more power to you!!
