Get Your Carpets Ready for Spring

It seems fair to say disaster has struck. Snowstorms and extreme weather have been the norm in Britain for several weeks now (though it seems like a lot longer), and the current earthquake crisis in Haiti gives us a lot to think about. Some would say too much. In lesser news, the indusrty professionals at “ End Tenancy Cleaning London ” suggests you get your carpets ready for spring, according to their advert in London Lite. So what are we to focus on during all this upheaval? Trivial details of course. I am taking initiative. I am ignoring the larger issues. I am redecorating my home. I will hire carpet cleaners like the advert tells me to do.
How, you might ask? Credit crunch aside, banks are beginning to offer loans again. In my case the loan was for “home renovation” which they feel will increase its value. For me it is just about finding something to do. That is, aside from worrying about the weather and laughing at politicians all over the telly politely deciding what to do about a major crisis in a third-world country.
Call me shallow, I won’t mind.
Rather than worrying, I am exercising control over one of the only areas of my life I still can: my house. The other thing about the credit crunch is that, for retailers, cash is hard to come by. This means that for carpet cleaning London retailers are offering hugely discounted prices. This is just what I am after. None of the messy details like donations to Haiti either, where your tax-deductible receipt may not arrive until after the tax season.
More seriously though...
If you feel things getting out of hand, it’s time to downsize. Focus on the little things and give in to your material demons and need for constant change. Movie theatres, builders, decorators, Neighbours (the show or the real thing), carpet cleaners, plumbers and maids all have one thing in common. They provide welcome distractions. Which of these distractions you choose will depend on which of them you can afford, but the distracting element is what’s important. My mantra lately has been “you cannot change the weather or stop earthquakes from happening but you can put some slap on and get on with your day.” I know that this is about as trivial as it gets. I am not being global minded, nor even British minded. Nor am I worry-minded, which is something money can’t buy in times and weather like these.

Even if you try to do it yourself it in order to save some money, you need to take a day off and spend the whole day cleaning. What an enjoyable break.

And not just awful. You are saving money, but you are wasting your time. And sometimes the time is money. So what's the conclusion?

There was some kind of equation that since women require time and time is money, than women are equal to money. There's no such thing. Am I right, girls?

A cleaner with a cleaner to do the cleaning for the cleaning's sake, that's a word.
