I hurt my back a couple of weeks ago. Now it is on the mend I have been trying to avoid bending whenever possible. I devised a way to clean the hall and bathroom floors by applying a floor wipe and sliding it back and forth with my foot, made a great job of front hall and bathroom yesterday using this method.

Today I decided to apply the same technique to the toilet, back hallway (we call it the back passage) and kitchen floors. All was going well until the foot on the wipe slid away from me and I executed, perfectly, the full splits on the kitchen floor, something I have never achieved before in all my 70+ years. No lasting harm done, but I fear I have definitely lost my virginity wink

Have never done the splits ( thankfully) but often do what you did ( antibacterial wipes pushed about by foot!) when my back is playing up.Only in the kitchen, so far, now I may branch out into other rooms.grin
You must be very limber not to have been hurt.
