Today I spent a few hours attempting to clean up some of the rubbish in the apartment. This generally consisted of a thick layer of red-to-dark grey dust and was covering absolutely everything. It must have been collecting up above the old ceilings for the past 70 years. You have no idea how much of this crap was up there.
Anyway, most of it is now being safely held in either a garbage bag, the bag of our poor vacuum cleaner or up my nose, I was wearing a mask - honest. Not a good sign when you wash your hair, look down and realise that the suds are dark-grey. Ugh.
It’s far from clean but it’s a start I guess.
