Helping mum

Mum had a busy weekend this weekend as she had been studying hard for her exam which she sat last week (she's doing her accountancy training), so the housework had been a little neglected. Now her exam is out of the way, she thought she's better get back to it. Like any good son (especially one who knows Christmas is on the way & is hoping for some decent presents), I thought I'd do my bit & help out.

First, I thought I'd better do a bit of washing up. Normally I just try to lick clean any plates or glasses that are left around, but mum doesn't seem to think that's too hygenic for some weird reason, so I did it the "proper" way.

Once they were all squeaky clean I thought I'd better dry them up & put them away. Just thought I'd better make sure first that there were no bubbles left on anything.

They all looked fine, so I went in search of a tea towel. Unfortunately, I got a little bit distracted at this point & had to have a bit of a mess around with it. Well, all work & no play makes Oscar a dull boy.

Mum decided to put the dishes away herself, and we moved on to some dusting. Here I am checking that the polish smells good. Yep, that should make the house smell nice & fresh, atchoo!

I know I was supposed to be dusting the furniture, but it was so much more fun to toss the cloth around & wave it about (AKA shaking the dust out of it - still helping out ya see if you're reading Santa).

All that cleaning left me pretty tired. Aren't I a good boy being so helpful though? The only thing mum didn't want my help with was sorting out the washing. She doesn't trust me not to steal socks. Honestly mum, just because the one time I was left alone in a room with the washing on the airer & took every single sock off it (about 30 socks), & tossed them all over the room, doesn't mean I can't be trusted does it? Oh, it does. Ah well. Mum said it looked like it had been snowing socks when she came in as they were all over the floor, sofa, in my crate, EVERYWHERE! I'd had such fun though that it was totally worth the ticking off!!

Thanks for all your kind comments on my football skills. I did some more practice over the weekend, so watch out team England, I'll be joining you soon. Looks like I could be meeting Miss Sunshade in some international competition after seeing her soccer skills. Fantastic! Check out the cool dancing elf she made of me

I'm liking the dance moves!

Salut Oscar,
Moi aussi j'aime faire le ménage. Mais j'ai très peur de l'aspirateur et j'aboie tout le temps. Je préfère prendre la poussière avec le plumeau.... C'est vrai que maintenant on ressemble à des vrais airedales toi et moi. Ah le roi et la reine.... je rêve...bises
