We have all experienced a very interesting period of our existence over the last few months, where we were all required to take residence in our homes for our own protection. As the airlines canceled flights and borders began to close many visitors made a last-minute attempt to cancel their vacation plans to be safe in their own countries of residence. However, a few choose to ride out the lockdown period here with us in Barbados!
The Parish of St. Philip or "St. Farlip" as it is affectionately known is the largest and most easterly parish in Barbados. Its main hub is known as Six Roads. This unique hub received its name because six roads extend from the roundabout, making it an easy connection point to Christ Church, St. George and St. John. Six Roads is a hive of activity offering many amenities such as restaurants, a gas station, a school, Emerald City shopping complex which includes a large supermarket, bank, credit union, post office and a few retail stores.
Every year, we clean our homes from top to bottom, change curtains and purchase new appliances and furniture, so how can we use these Christmas preparations or our Bajan ‘spring cleaning’ as a way of maintaining our homes yearly?
