Had a bit of a lazy start today mainly due to the very late night last night! Sophiecat woke me just before 7am for food, I went downstairs fed her and came straight back to bed, I didn’t wake up again until about 8.40ish! This is very late for me but clearly my body and brain needed the rest. Eventually got out the door around 10.30 to do the food shop again much later than normal and I didn’t really like it! Too many people and by the time I got home half the day had gone.
The rest of the day was spent tidying and cleaning the house, I can’t believe how one person namely me can make such a mess especially at the moment when I’m out of the house for around 9-10 hours a day five days a week and sleep for another 7-8!!
Overall it took about 4 hours to clean the house and this wasn’t even a deep clean! Once I’d put all the food shopping away, I had loads of dishes put away before I could start washing all the dirty ones, I needed to hoover and wash the floors and clean the bathroom. I often feeling like I’m winging it when it comes to running a house, I left home when I was 16 so everything I do is self taught and really don’t know if what I do is right or the best way to do things, all I do know is what I do now isn’t really working as I feel like I’m never on top of it and like I never get a day off (last week was the exception) as there is always something that needs doing.
So my plan this week is to make a daily chart and do about 20-30 minutes each day and see if by Saturday it’s as clean as it is now – do you have any routine to keep on top of the housework?
