Well I've let everything slide this last week and need to find some mojo to get back to it and sort out this dump!!
I started with the washing up but then coffee happened!
Not feeling wonderful mentally at the moment but I'm sure that'll pass for a while soon!

Aim of tomorrow is to scrub the bathroom and change the bedding, including washing the duvet. It's meant to be a hot day so I want to take advantage of it and get my duvet washed.

Bedding is in the wash, and that's as far as I've got so far

Oh boy, here we go again.. Winter 2023, well, .. it is January 2024.

Picking up a fresh new thread with boring things like "I really have to clean / tidy this, .. " Feel free to participate.

Part 1, October 2020 (first thread)

Part 2, May 2021 (second thread)

Part 3, November 2021 (third thread)

Part 4, June 2022 (fourth thread)

Part 5, May 2023 (last thread)

Part 6, January 2024 (this thread)

Okay, this is more a personal entry than a 'hey look at this stuff' thread, sorry to bore you yet again. I just wanted a way to hold myself accountable and mainly to let me keep track of what I was trying to do today.

I once said: "Who knows, maybe this turns into a thing that we can keep going once or twice a year." And I cannot believe it's been yet another year. Since October 2020 we've started helping each other and doing daily tasks little and large. And I think it's clearly showing. We feel better about ourselves and our homes. It is crazy what we've achieved. Thumbs up to everybody who made any progress.

To all the lurkers, feel free to ask for an account or log in and participate. I see your DM msgs saying you've worked and read this thread, feel free to join in and say hi. Even if you do one thing a month, that's still 12 things a year. And I think twelve is a bigger number than zero. Don't feel shy to share your struggles with cleaning, ask questions. We're all here supporting each other and learning.

So, let's get started. Whattah we gonna tidy, clean, organize, prepare, and think about .. what are we going to achieve today?

POST BELOW what you might do today, cleaning a kitchen? Vacuum the hallway? Tidying up the bedroom? It sounds boring, but indulge me and leave a reply, please. And if you have any questions let's discuss it.

Also, please let me know if you listen to any music, videos, podcasts, have the tv on, or whatever. What's your cleaning routine or equipment preferences, or what do you like or hate to do?
I really have to clean my car windows properly. I lost my dog (14 yrs old) just over a month ago and he used to slober on the car windows in the back, and I haven't been able to bring myself to clean them just yet, so they are all cloudy and gross. But the grossness reminds me of my best friend and only family that I had for 14 years, so it's a tough one.....

I need to vaccuum all the spots my robot doesn't reach. Corners and under furniture. Will probably get this done in the next 2 days hopefully, because the Tour de France next two stages are sprints so can have it on in the background and still do other stuff for the first 3ish hours, rather than be glued to the TV like for a mountain stage :D
