You'd think I'd be able to cope with Sainsburys, wouldn't you? I was only going shopping after all. But even that turned into a minor traumatic experience.
I made a point of avoiding the dog food aisle but my eyes filled up when I saw - wait for it - air fresheners.
In the last year or so, the house smelled - not just old dog smells but other, even less pleasant, whiffs resulting from Harvey's 'little problem'. So I became something of a connoisseur when it came to air fresheners. And my conclusion: nothing works. (Except candles, which are an expensive way of dealing with the dilemma.)
Just last week I bought a fancy new perfume diffuser cum toilet cleanser; it's made the toilet smell like a public lavatory. The sort with the very distinctive and highly-artificial scent. The smell also lingers on the person who has just used the loo.
So I won't be buying that again.
