Recently I came home to a filthy house. After months of traveling abroad, my house smelled dusty and dirty, and looked it too.
Although I had done a thorough housecleaning before I left to travel, a house sitting alone can go “stale” (for a lack of a better word).
It is disappointing to have to spend so much time cleaning when you first come home from a trip, and when all you really want to do is relax! However, I find it hard to rest properly in a dirty house, so it had to be done!
