I've been tidying the house. Neither of us is any good at putting things away. We take an item out of a cupboard, use it, place it on the handiest surface- and there it'll stay for months. Most of the time I simply don't notice all the clutter. This morning I was decanting salt from a nearly empty container that has been hanging around the kitchen for ages and found it had weevils in it.
