Spring Cleaning

I've decided not to wait any longer for good spring weather and to take Muse Swings' advice about spring cleaning. She'd asked several bloggers for cleaning suggestions. I hate to clean windows, as you remember from this post . Why should I when I can hire a cute team of facade fixers like these who just might be persuaded to do windows for me? Regular cleaning ladies charge about 300 dinars an hour (about $4.38), which isn't ruinous, but I think these guys are cuter, even if I have to pay a little more....

That looks like a very uncomfortable job.
I think the guy on the left was flirting with you. :-)

The photo is dreadful & funny at the same time.

Hi Bibi. Long time no see :)
Hope you're doing fine. I saw your comment on Virginia's blog and I missed you all of a sudden. Do you still have your plan to travel to the US in summer? Look forward to meet you.

$4.38 an hour?? Are you kidding? If I could get someone to clean my place for that price . . . my place would be a lot cleaner! I do my best, but work (and life in general) tend to get in the way.
My advice to you: Go ahead and hire these guys!

I don't mind doing laundry and scrubbing the bathtub but I absolutely HATE vacuuming and dusting.

Hee-hee! Why settle for one when you can have a whole Men-at-Work team. (looks like some major renovation on the building going on - should be nice when done.)
PS - ditto on Meead's comment - would really hope to meet you.

This is sensuos! Men who do windows..ahhh.. I wonder if any of them are single?

Mim said...

what an awesome thought. 4 cute guys hanging outside the window. Of course, they might not be cute...and might even show plumbers crack - how awful would that be! I think I'll stick with dirty windows in that case

MuseSwings said...

Perfect! I love it! I love the Men at Work theme here and yes, I think you should hire them to do your windows - at least the outsides while you have tea and enjoy the view. Make that wine.

One of our neighbor after having been laid off from his manager's job became a good window cleaner...
The man on the left seems to know he is under surveillance!!!

These guys have it right. If you're hanging around, you ought to keep yourself busy.

What a fabulous photograph. Just love the colours of the guys against that building. Great shot.
