This Week's Cleaning Zone - The Dining Room - The Flying Drunken Monkey

I really didn’t get much cleaning done last week. The tonsillitis was still kicking my butt – in fact, I’ve just finished my antibiotics yet my tonsils still feel swollen.

I’m also incredibly spacey after starting my antidepressants. I still have another week or so before they actually start working so I’m also still fighting the anxiety and depression.

Plus, there was the stress of my laptop not working and the stress that Mr Monkey is going through at work. Too much stress tends to leave me quite unable to cope at the moment.

So I’m not beating myself up about it. Yes, the house is a mess. But the dishes were washed, I was on top of the clothes washing (even if it wasn’t all put away) and everyone was fed.

But this week I’m hoping to make more of an effort. I need to start writing my lists again and forcing myself to work through them. I’ll stick to the basics so I don’t overwhelm myself but I just need to do something.

I’m not going to attempt to declutter the dining room this week, unless something miraculous happens and I suddenly feel fantastic and motivated. But I will tidy it, as well as the rest of the house and get it all to a standard that I feel happier with.

    Some weeks are just so much more trying than others. Those are the weeks to kick the dust bunnies under the couch, heat up a tin of baked beans and let the kids skip a bath. All ok in the long run, sometimes even better than ok! Hope it all goes better next week for you. x
