This Week’s Cleaning Zone ★ The Bedrooms

Cleaning Zone - The Bedrooms - The Flying Drunken Monkey

My cleaning mojo did come back a bit last week – I got some of the laundry and bathroom cleaned. But then I got sick mid-week and am still trying to get my strength and energy back so it went a little downhill from there.

Today the landlord organised a tiler to come in and fix the tiles in the kitchen that were uneven and really unsafe. They were like that when we moved in and the landlord had been saying they were going to fix them.

The tiler pulled up the tiles to discover a huge hole underneath. Yup, that’s right, a hole. As you can see in the picture above (if you are reading via RSS you’ll have to click through to see the picture) he has put down a board so that we can at least walk across and get to the bathroom. The real estate sent out a flooring guy to have a look at it and he didn’t exactly fill me with hope – it’s a big job and the stove will have to be removed to be able to fix it. It’s likely the whole kitchen floor will have to be removed and re-done. So, I’m not really sure where that leaves us. If they have to re-do the floor we won’t have access to the bathroom or the backyard/laundry.

For the moment, I’m working on the assumption that we will still be here this week. Luckily this week’s cleaning zones are the bedrooms, upstairs and away from all of the craziness.

There is a lot of clean washing that needs to be put away and the bedside tables really need to be cleared off and dusted but otherwise it’s pretty good. Lily’s toys are actually fairly tidy at the moment so her room is pretty good. But I desperately need to sort through her clothes, put away the winter clothes and work out what she’ll need for summer.

The plan for this week’s cleaning zone;

♥ Clean balcony doors
♥ Clean mirror
♥ Clean wardrobe doors
♥ Clean window
♥ Clear bedside tables
♥ Dust
♥ Fold clothes
♥ Rotate Toys
♥ Tidy nappies
♥ Tidy under beds
♥ Vacuum

  1. Yikes!!!
    I would think that the landlords would either have to put you up in other accomodation while it’s being fixed or at the very least provide a portable bathroom that you can access.
    I still need to go through the boys clothes too. Too many winter pants in the drawer and I can’t fit all the shorts in!!
    You have inspired me to start zone cleaning again. Will wait until the new year and we’re back form hols to start though.

      Well, by the looks of it they’re not going to need to pull up the whole kitchen so we should fine to stay here while it’s being fixed. Thankfully we have another door to the bathroom from outside as the hole is right outside the bathroom door – it means going from the kitchen, outside and back in to the bathroom but it’s useable at least.

      Lily’s drawers have become a mess! I don’t even really know what’s in there anymore.

      yay! Let me know how you go with the zone cleaning.
