I've spent the past 3 hours cleaning the inside of the caravan while PP, with her extra height and longer reach cleaned the outside.
A full 3 hours!
It wouldn't be so bad but it still isn't finished.
How can such a small space take so long to clean? OK so there are zillions of cupboards and lots of nooks and crannies but still.
Small Dog came out into the van with me to 'help' which consisted mainly of lying on her back with her legs up in the air in a patch of sunlight on the seat. I had to move her a few times otherwise I'd have had to clean round her, which elicited a deep sigh and rolling of her eyes.
I remained unmoved.
When we're camping, she likes to sit up on the back of the seat by the window to keep a close eye on any dog/rabbit/duck/bird incursions inside her perimeter. As a result there is usually a fairly even line of dried dog snot all along the inside of both the side windows. I pointed this out to Small Dog, as I laboriously cleaned and polished them, but she gave me the equivalent of a shrug and went back to her sunbathing.
I don't know if you've ever had to clean dog snot off the inside of a caravan window, but I can tell you it's not easy. It has a tendency to smear. I spent around 15 minutes on each window, but when I'd finished they were crystal clear.
I then made a start on the washroom which is at the rear of the caravan. 40 minutes later, I emerged, to find Small Dog sitting on the back of one of the seats with her snotty nose pressed right up against the window, intently watching a magpie on the lawn.
I honestly don't know why I even bother......
