Is the glass half full?
I realised this morning that I haven't cleaned the dining room since Christmas.
Even by my standards three and half months is bad, and the result is that it's become a dumping ground, so cleaning mostly involved moving things into other rooms - which is fine until I come to clean those rooms. Ah well, that's another day. And not for a long time judging my record.
Now what do you see when you look at this picture?
I see an empty bottle so I put it for recycling. Husband saw what I'd done.
'What are you doing?!'
'Getting rid of an empty bottle.'
'That's not empty!'
'It's not. If you leave it for a day or two all the drips congregate at the bottom. You can't waste that'
