The Vicarage Cleaner

“I have a new recruit with me tomorrow, is it ok to bring her?” That was the text message from our cleaner.  “Of course”! was my reply.

After a few false starts, we finally have an excellent cleaner who has been with us for about 6 months now so what could possibly go wrong with bringing a trainee???

How wrong I was!!!!!

Our regular cleaner and her new recruit came at the allotted time.  Instead of the usual two hours, all the cleaning was done in half the time and off they went.

The house usually smelled wonderful after the cleaner had been in.  On this particular day, there was no said freshness.

Just out of curiosity, I decided to do a quick check and started with the shower room.  The shower cubicle was looking just as tired as before the cleaner came.  There was obvious damage to the plug hole.   The wash hand basin had botches of blue liquid!

Oh dear!

I know for a fact that it was the trainee who was cleaning the shower room.  Usually the shower cubicle would be gleaming.

What can I do?  I just have to pray that the new recruit doesn’t tag along the next time!!!!
