Anyone else having a big clean/tidy today?

I am about to start having a big clean and tidy in our house! I work this week for half term and don't want to spend all.week doing housework so I'm having a blitz today.

It's got a bit out of hand lately due to a hugely busy few weeks at work blush

Anyone else on a marathon clean? I'll post back with progress in a bit smile

Me smile

I have diagnosed OCD but also fibromyalgia so I'm often battling between head telling me to clean and body telling me to rest!

I have let things slip lately and it's driving me crazy.
I've always been one of those somewhat annoying types that can find anything as everything has a home. Not anymore.

The catalyst was a few days back when I had stripped dd's bed and then she came in with me for a few nights and when I went to re-do her bed I couldn't find her favourite bedding.

So- today I'm going to make a good start.

Be nice to have a cleaning buddy, good luck smile

Glad I have company! I have made a start in the lounge and put anything that doesn't belong in there in a basket to take round and put away!

I am also about to have a cup of tea brew and then will carry on.

Already done. Hoovered and dusted upstairs and living. Did rest of the house in the week. I know it won't stay like this as it's half term but it looks good for now.

Me, but not until this afternoon. DD is at drama this morning, so I'm enjoying a little mooch around the shops and quiet cup of coffee. Then I'll pick her up and we'll blitz the house this afternoon. There is a lot to do...
