I commend every person who manages to keep their house clean and tidy all the time .. or are you on drugs ? I find it impossible but am a perfectionist so am determined to see myself as a clean and tidy person and not a slob which is what I see when I look at the state it's got into ATM .😭😭😭I have let it slip again and am beating myself up about it so am on a mission to make it pristine today 😁😁(20 hours later 😭😭🤣🤣)

Thankyou. Just on a canal walk for a few drinks too. Great weather. You should try it instead of housework.

Lots of drugs! Prescription ones though wink

I have OCD which can be a blessing and a curse.
I do lots in the early morning before the kids get up, I'm a SAHM so have little excuse plus I actually love cleaning.

I find lists help a lot.

I used to clean all day, dashing about from room to room and not getting anywhere.

Now I make a list of what needs doing in each room and don't start another until it's done.

I'm having a major de clutter at the minute as things have slipped due to the dc being off school.
My routine is up the wall. My MH suffers terribly when I'm living in chaos.
