Pretty much what I did, I watched more of The Crown.

Today it's already 11:30 and I've still not started.

Let's goooooo :D Best of luck with getting all your tasks done for the day.
But at least make sure you post that letter. It seems like it's the one thing to at least get sorted out today.

That's the spirit, mini summer vacation

- did the dishes
- got my dhl delivery
- gathered up some laundry, but not enough to start the washing machine
- put paperwork that I can't throw out into a box, so it can't fall or whatever
- gathered up the trash, but not enough to throw it out yet

I have this too, so much stacked everywhere. However I have done the majority of the laundry now and there's not enough to do another load today.
Also have done half the washing up so far.

Is it just not having free time that laundry stacks up? Because when I have enough to run it, I just run it on some 15 to 25 minute eco setting, and throw it in the dryer. Which takes 45 to 60 minutes. I try to start laundry, do dishes or something else, then stop that and throw it in the dryer, then go watch a tv episode, or sort out something else in the apartment. Then 'kinda' fold my laundry.
Given, I am alone, so it's probably easier for me. But I try to not let it stack up, and I know when I have like 3 loads to do, it's because I was sick, or too busy with other offline stuff, or lazy/depression simply wins.

No judgy question!! Just honestly curious.

I couldn't afford to run a tumble dryer even if I had space for one! So I gave stuff hanging everywhere drying, and then it's the folding and putting away that I've not had time for. Or had timevto run the washing machine really lately, worked 7 days last week so having a big catch up with all the cleaning now.

yeah that can make it all last a lot longer. Thanks for the info! I got lucky, I had a broken dryer, and after my mom moved into the care home I got the old one. So I can tumble again :D

- Aired out the apartment
- gathered up the trash
- threw big bin liner out last night
- did some dishes again
- gathered up laundry again, almost time to do a load.
- updated all my devices to 15.7 and 16 where possible
- updated my computers to the latest security patches or latest operating systems
- updated the Minecraft servers to the latest builds of plugins and server engines while tidying up the balcony slightly
- went through some old documents on the computer with todo lists and removed stuff that I completely and kept stuff that keeps coming back as todo item, and put new-higher priority items near the top again.

edit

- tidied up in the kitchen
- tidied up the cup board thing a bit
- groceries showed up and I put them away
- might have enough laundry for a run, will start It later for 20 minutes, and ill take a 15 minute shower, then throw it in the dryer, which takes 45 minutes, meaning i can have a snack and watch another game of thrones episode.

time to call it a day after that though.

I still haven't done my dishes, I will start soon by just removing the rubbish out of the kitchen and then doing just some glasses or plates, and not stressing about it.

Best of luck nixxy !!

- aired out apartment for 15 minutes
- started on gathering up trash
- did 10 minutes of dishes and stopped due to pain in knee (will continue later)

A start has been made at least to have that motivation to make the best of it.

- more dishes done, another ten minutes.
- I've opened the balcony door and the curtains for an hour which helped heat up the apartment.
- did some documentation on zrips, and maintenance on 1mb.
