I left for the gym around 1300hrs. The cleaner was already in the house when I left and I said goodbye to her. She usually stays until around 1500hrs. I arrived home at 1530 to find a really wet mop in the middle of the kitchen floor on it's side, her gloves over the stair bannister and a bottle of pledge in the living room. The cleaning job is obviously not yet finished...in-fact it's far from it.
She hasen't taken her pay cheque either so she wouldn't have just done a runner. I've yet to search the other rooms of the house.
It IS quite eerie.
