Well the school holidays have come to an end and what a busy one it was. Between being on my own for the majority of it and trying to keep three kids under 6 entertained at a level where all their interests were catered for, proved to be quite manageable but meant my ‘to do list’ wasn’t completely done!
I am happy to say that quite a bit was done and things that weren’t even on the list were achieved as well. It’s funny how we reach spring and suddenly we go into damage control and have this sudden urge for everything to be clean enough to eat food off. I guess the cycle is have fun in the summer, hibernate in the winter and then clean madly before the festive and fun season arrives again! And that is what I did! I cleaned windows, walls, my oven, sorted through our clothes and tackled the tupperware cupboard! I only have two rooms in the house left to organise, a bit of work outside and then finally after 10 years of living in our home I will feel the most organised I’ve been in this house!
Some people would be shocked that my house would be unorganised….yes I admit that I have a neat freak disorder lol, but there is a huge difference between being neat and organised!!! I guess somewhere between moving in all those years ago and having three kids, things built up and up to the point where I couldn’t stand it any longer! And I finally have taught myself to be brutal! I hoard too much stuff but as I’m getting older, I’m evolving and realising exactly what I want and being able to differentiate between needing and wanting is a must skill to have in an organised home!
Now that I will have one child back in school five days a week, it leaves me with my two girls and 10 weeks of three days a week to get my butt into gear!!! My original ‘to do list’ had jobs added to it that I wanted to get done by Christmas, so I decided to create a new ‘to do list’ – therefore two lists became one – which I am determined to go like a crazy lady to get it all done by the end of the year!
