Clean enough?

The sun's shining, the birds are singing, and my conscience is telling me it's spring cleaning time. When I am Rich I'll be able to pay someone else to do all the hard work for me, although I'm not sure if that really would be such a good idea.

The room most in need of a thorough clean and tidy is the one I use as my office ...

       art studio ...

   ... and temporary potting shed.

Problem is, if I did allow a cleaner in there I'd have to watch them the whole time in case they messed up my mess. It might look disorganised but I know exactly where everything is.

Are you an enthusiastic or reluctant spring cleaner? Would you welcome or dread some help with this annual chore?

A question of wheels

Our poor, old car has reached the stage where it will probably cost less to replace it than to keep repairing it. So what sort of new car should we buy? Something small and economical for local trips? Something comfortable and roomy for longer journeys?

When we are Rich, we’ll have a fleet of vehicles to suit all occasions (plus a chauffeur/ mechanic to look after them all).

In the meantime …
he's looking longingly at sports cars …
and I’m thinking a little camper van would be nice …

I wonder if there’s a way we could compromise?

If money was no object, what would your ideal vehicle be like?
