Husband, Car Parts & Cream Carpet . . .

Our house was brand new in early 2000s when  my family moved in, lovely and smart.  Like other families taking a new house for the first time ever, we took photos on the day when we were allowed in to measure up for curtains etc. Our son managed to  master the taking of videos and took lots of  pretty good videos of us wandering from room to room.  An amusing  running commentary was added and we did the trick of opening all the cupboard and room doors for her to make a grand entrance!  The carpets had yet to be fitted.  We had chosen a gorgeous pale honey colour.  Probably a big mistake, especially as we had a complete petrol head living in, his greatest joy was mooching about in garage and then coming into the house via the integral door.  .  .  It’s amazing how efficient a professional cleaning company can be when faced with half a engine of oil over the new honey carpet!
