I bet lots of you were surprised by this title…. you must know me too well! I’ve always had a fairly loose relationship with housework… I go through DAYS of being tidy but it is usually followed by WEEKS/MONTHS of being untidy… but I think I’ve finally cracked it now :)
Last weekend Mikayla and I got stuck in and started to clean… not just tidy up but REALLY clean! We vacuumed, dusted, polished, wiped, scrubbed and de-cluttered for 7 hours! By the end of the day we felt ‘cleaned out’ but it was SO worth it!
Here’s the toilet… and yes I know it’s just like any other toilet LOL But this has been scrubbed from top to bottom (including the door) and the wall paper that Miss Leila picked has been re-glued: Then we moved onto the hall and then the lounge… how cool is this:We emptied the fire place of most of the ashes, dusted, vacuumed, did the window sills and skirting boards! Both of the sofas had their cushions removed and vacuumed, the table was polished to within an inch of its life and the bookshelf and corner table both got dusted! Next we got into the TV cabinet and sorted it out and then we moved the stereo off the kitchen bench and put it in a more useable place :)
We also cleaned up the dining room which is now my office…. it’s too cold to be in the craft room… especially when there’s a roaring fire in the lounge! There’s still things to sort out there but the majority of it is done… and working well :)
The next job was the KITCHEN! We have finally done away with the ‘stuff’ that was cluttering up the benches!!! If you’ve ever been to my house you’ll remember that we used to have very little bench space because most of it was covered with piles of things… junk basically…. but no more!
This bench looks so much better with no stereo on it! And no stereo means no clutter surrounding the stereo LOL I just love this photo with my new ‘best friend’ Jif! I’d forgotten just how amazing this stuff is… it certainly took a lot of the effort out of the cleaning!
We’ve been living in our newly cleaned house for a week now… and I’m very happy to report that those photos could have easily been taken today because it’s still SPOTLESS!!
So now I’m off to do some ‘fun things’ since the housework has all been done :) Hope you all have a fab weekend xx
