I’m proud to say I actually got a lot done last week! The computer room was a mess and I was able to get it looking pretty presentable by the end of the week. I cleared the top of the bookshelves and the top of the drawers! I sorted through the draw of electrical cords etc and while I still need Mr Monkey to look through them I’m feeling much more comfortable as they are all in one box. I vacuumed the floor and wiped down the cupboards and it’s all looking much more presentable. I actually feel much calmer when walking through the room.
I’m hoping to do the same downstairs this week. We went to the big new Ikea store today. It’s probably going to be deadly having one so close to home!! We picked up a few Christmas presents for Lily and my niece, a safety rail to go on the side of Lily’s toddler bed, a little step stool for Lily, hooks to go in the entryway to hang jackets etc on, some little cubes to go in our drawers to separate things, and some vases. We also had a look at some ideas for growing herbs in our kitchen and other kitchen supplies and had lunch in the restaurant. It was a fun day.
I should be doing a bit more work downstairs this week as we are really starting to sort out the spare room. A few things that we weren’t using have gone back to my parents and my friend will be taking the small stand/ drawer thing we have in there. Just trying to organise to get it to her! We gave the TV away using Freecycle as we were only going to get $5 for it from Cash Convertors and no one else would take it. Once the stands gone there will be much more room in there and Lily should be able to use it as a playroom. She’s getting a play kitchen for Christmas from my parents so that will go in there with all of her other toys. I need to sort out the bookshelf and the junk at the end of the bed but I’m happy with how it’s turning out.
Otherwise, there isn’t much different happening in this zone this week, just the usual. We need to borrow a drill to put the hooks up above the shoe rack and I’m really looking forward to the difference they should make.
So, anyway, here’s what I have planned for this week:
- ~ Dust
- ~ Vacuum
- ~ Clean couches
- ~ Clear off top of TV cabinet
- ~ Rotate Toys
- ~ Filing
- ~ Tidy shoes
- ~ Clean window
So there you have it, my plan for the week. I’ll let you know how I go at the end of the month.
