This was the last weekend of My slave tate’s holiday and I decided to make the most of it. I needed My slave to do some shopping for Me yesterday morning as I was having guest’s over for dinner. I had already prewarned My slave that his presence would be required at 10am. No point in wasting any time – the day goes quickly enough as it is.
I gave him My list of shopping requirements, most which he would find at the supermarket and the fish was only to be purchased at the Fish Market. Once the shopping part had been completed for Me, it was maid marian’s turn to do some more cleaning. Dusting was the main task on her agenda today as I have so many ornaments and other bits and pieces and they do tend to gather dust. Then there were dishes to be washed, clothes to be hung out to dry (a first for My maid), and a couple of indoor bins to wash inside and out as well as some vacuuming to finish up. I had to deal with another slave for a bit and left My maid behind with specific instructions to follow in My absence! It is most heartwarming to know that I can trust My maid to get on with things without slacking off or doing a poor job when I am not there to supervise in person. My maid knows full well what the consequences would be if she did any sloppy work or took longer to do a task than I felt was necessary! I returned to find everything done to My specifications and My slave was ready to depart.
My house was gleaming and just in time for My dinner guests. It was a fabulous night, even more so as I had made dessert the day before in preparation for last night and all I had to cook was the main meal. It was not a overly late evening and I was able to get up at a reasonable hour this morning (Sunday) to watch My recorded program from last night (The Bill). Then it was time to contact slave tate to let him know that maid marian was required once again at 2pm to complete her cleaning duties.
My slave arrived with plenty of enthusiasm and just as well as My maid would need it to get the shower cleaned which was her biggest task for today. The washing from yesterday had to be brought in and folded and more dishes had to be washed. For the consistent hard work My maid had put in over the weekend, I did leave her a little treat to enjoy: the last slice of My Passionfruit & Coconut Tart. Once that dish had been washed and put away, My maid was finally allowed to change and make her way home to cook her own dinner until I next require her services.
