    Since the wife is away looking after our Son i've been stuck at home looking after our other boy who has got tonsillitis......

    Good excuse to give the little A a clean. Not quite sure why Some Women in my house anyway , tend to keep a immaculate house but trash there cars lol its was like a dumping ground

    Nice work !

    I was going to post a thread like this for my missus car but it was so dirty and took so long to clean that i really didn't get around to it lol

    It's amazing like you say how the house is kept in tip top condition but when it comes to the car it is just a dumping ground. I always leave a bag on the seat to hint at taken the rubbish out of the car and i always find the bag still empty with the kids rubbish around it lol.
