I have been working hard on a project for which I have had to do a lot of sawing. A lot of sawdust and wood shavings had accumulated in my workshop. The only clean spot left was where I had taken some photographs in preparation for a commission for one of my chairs. Time for a good clean up.
After I had cleared away the bigger pieces I went after the sawdust with the vacuum cleaner. It gives me such a satisfactory feeling to see my worktops so clean after only a few quick sweeps!
As I was putting a chair back into my dolls house I noticed I was missing my little rabbit. My little scruffy rabbit which always sits on one of the chairs in the drawing room. It is a little beige rabbit with some black stitching on it, the colours are a bit like, well, like sawdust really. You get the picture, right?
I had to cut open the vacuum cleaner bag -which was completely full of course- and sort through all of the dust and scraps of wood etcetera. Finally, there it was, poor thing. All dirty and dusty. I gave it a little reprimand, but only because I had been so concerned you see. Then I gave it a good clean and put it back on the chair by the fire, nice and cosy.
