This urge is familiar to me. Not so much anymore, but once upon a time, afterglow equalled cleaning frenzy.

I read some study (who thinks up this stuff? Obviously a woman in afterglow...) that men release some hormone that makes them sleep and women release a hormone that makes them more awake and alert.

I just want to know how it is that I've been in that kitchen at least 8 times and have never noticed the stenciling.

My urges to clean come when I am stressed. If you ever find my house truly clean, either I am stressed or my mother will be arriving within 24 hours. Oh wait. Same thing.

I immediately noticed the stenciling when I saw her house for the first time. Not that there's been a second time I've seen her house. Nope. Just the once. But I did notice the stenciling. I think I even asked, "Did you do the stenciling?" I don't remember the reply, but I do believe I did ask.

I'm a cleaner. For me, "afterglow" entails the GLOW left on the wood of the tables AFTER you use that awesome oily stuff to wipe them down. So shiny...

Caroline - The stencilling is dated AND no one ever notices it AND it means I can never paint the kitchen. But when you risk your life teetering on a ladder over the basement stairs to stencil the stairwell you are obliged to keep it.

Robin - You freak, no one ever notices the stencilling (I prefer the European spelling).

I noticed the stencilling. I love the stencilling. Your stencilling gave me the idea for my stencilling (although it was years ago I noticed it, I remembered it when the time came to decorate my own house). Agreed my stencilling doesn't look like yours, but the idea to use stencils I got directly from your kitchen.
PS-I like to cuddle for bit, then clean things.
