I Welcome A Review
A good review is validation - it says, all your hard work was worth it, it demonstrates that you've been understood - heard.
In this world where so much competes for the attention of our audiences, a positive review is evidence of the fact that someone has taken a moment out of the hurly burly, and the rough and tumble to give attention to my labours - it's a recognition, person-to-person. It the communication of appreciation of the essence of one's being.
So when I turned on my computer this morning, and read a positive review, my spirits lifted. Usually, for the sake of modesty, I prefer the good news to filter through, and maybe to reach social media via someone else, but hey, what the heck, it's Christmas! - so here goes:
"Amazing guest! Very punctual neat and friendly It would be my pleasure to host them again :)"

All those years reaching into my soul and working at my housework techniques have at last paid off. I’m off to hire a carpet cleaner to celebrate.
