Yes, I know. I’m not doing my zones in order. In fact, I (supposedly) did the Dining Room only a few weeks ago.
But really, I didn’t. In fact I’ve barely done any housework over the past few weeks while I’ve been sick. So it’s beyond time to get back into it.
I decided to start with the room that really needs work. The Dining Room needs decluttering more than it needs cleaning.
I still need to clear off the computer table so we can get rid of it. There’s also bags of clothes that both Lily and Chloe have grown out of that need to be stored properly. There’s boxes of Mr Monkey’s paperwork which he needs to go through. The bookshelves need a good organising and I need to find a better spot for the vacuum cleaner. There’s a lot of … stuff that has been shoved in a corner next to the dining table that needs to be put in the proper place. I’ve cleared off the dining table but the mantel above it needs to be cleared. I need to organise Lily’s scooter and bike so it’s not taking over most of the space.
As this is also the room where we hang washing when it’s raining it can look really, really messy at times. It’s the main thoroughfare room for downstairs so the messiness tends to affect the rest of the house as well.
I’ll also be focusing on my daily tasks this week. If I’m able to complete all of those each day then I should be back on track with getting the housework done.
