After spending all day and much of the evening cleaning and scrubbing every surface and nook and cranny in the kitchen, and polishing the oven so it looked like new ready for the Environmental Health chappy to come round and assess my kitchen, I had a phone call an hour before his arrival -
'Sorry I can't make it'
Ho hum, at least I have a tidy kitchen and a spotless oven.
It is rescheduled for Wednesday morning.
I wonder if I can keep everyone out of the kitchen until then ;)
