The Big Cleanup

One evening last week, mummy was shocked to find both my eyes red and swollen. We did not go anywhere and had spent the whole day at home. After just one hour of not seeing me (she went to cook dinner), she discovered that I had developed some eye irritation when she came out from the kitchen.

Itchy tiny bumps around both eyes

Luckily, the bumps and redness were cleared within 10 minutes without any medication. Mummy just lightly splashed both my eyes with water and patted them dry.

Unsure about what has caused this, clean-freak mummy decided to do what she does best... cleaning! Besides cleaning and sanitizing the floor and sofa (she does this every single day), she also made me wash my toys. The main suspects were the toys that I have been playing with that day...

We washed the alphabet foam mats (we wash this quite often)

We washed the MegaBloks (mummy used to wash this very often when I was younger)

We also dismantled all my Lego creations and washed them brick by brick... thousands of them (from 2 out of my 3 sets)!

Spread out for drying...

Mummy: Wah! So many Legos!
Me: It's so MUCH Lego, mummy. There's too much, it's uncountable.
Mummy: Yeah, you're probably right haha.

Since the cleaning mood was still on, mummy decided to wash my soft toys as well (although they were all kept away). This is actually Part 2 of the long-delayed Part 1 back in April 2009! My poor furry pals had a crazy spin in the washing machine today. Although some of them had labels stated "Surface wash only", mummy didn't care at all and dumped everything in.

These fellars were so big that they could only go in 2 or 3 at a time...

Wanna go for a spin? Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!


Hang them up and say thank you to the scorching sun and searing heat!

  1. wahh...really big wash.

    Chloe got eat anything out of the ordinary that day or not? Last time i took med and then my eyes grew puffy like that.

    Another time was I was eating something..twisties or O Ya..then didnt wash hand properly and rubbed my eyes. Become puffy like that too.

    It went away after a rest

    Hope Chloe is better now.

  2. Small kucing: She didn't eat anything new or unusual that day. The funny thing was, after washing, it just cleared on its own and never came back. I think it's caused by rubbing her eyes with her dirty hands.

  9. Shame to tell you, I hardly washed Shenny's toys, only one time when she had hand foot and mouth disease. Also, I remember that I didn't wash as thoroughly as you do. I really salute you and shame to myself for being such a 'dirty' and lazy mom.

  14. The hot weather is really helpful to dry all your stuffs. By the way, mummy Chloe and Chloe have done such a good job in cleaning up the toys. I am sure you feel the satisfaction at the end of the day. Cleaning up indeed is a very good holiday activity too.
