    The little hand sink in the toilet room has been dealt with, it doesn't clog anymore. OMG, what a relief - 75% clean. I now have to rest my eyes and back so I can go back and finish that area up, making sure it's as clean as I can get it.

    Ive started collecting things to throw out, paper, glass, packaging, plastics, kitchen crap, etc. Just to tidy that up - next I need to walk back and forth a handful of times to get rid of all the trash. We will see, lol. My back hurts.

    I've also thrown laundry - and it just finished, so time for a break and then picking things up again.

    Yes, I still do not have a plan, but it's forming. One of two big hurdles (clogged sinks) is at least sorted.

    The good news is they are no longer coming in the test the alarms, the bad news is that I have loads of washing up to do again!

    Scrubbed the sink clean and most of that area in the toilet room, and bathroom is next - the sink needs a final scrub now, then it's onwards to the next task.

    I've done most of the kitchen in regards to dishes and things that need to be put away. I will soon be able to find the motivation to scrub the place down - giving room to do the cupboards, walls, stove, and "fix up" some flaws in the kitchen (since they're coming to inspect).

    Small progress, TOO SLOW, but, .. fighting depression, no sleep, family issues, legal crap with brother and i dunno what else .. it's progress.

    Sunday morning. I have completed scrubbing the corner in both the bathroom and toilet room. And I've done more dishes and I've cleaned the walls a bit, just to make a start. It's nice to have that stress no longer in my life for now. Onwards to the kitchen area. Before I return to these rooms and scrub the walls, clean the ceiling, floor .. I just need a 'break' from that area.

    The kitchen is going to fall behind if I don.t


    The dishes are done, I have to empty and re-fill the dish washer, and do some pans manually. Then do that sink, and stove. I made progress already but 25% - i need to get to 50% now. So it is easier to do the top of the cupboards and walls, stuff like that.

    Once visually the kitchen is to where i normally have it, I still need to go into the cupboards, remove things, throw things out, tidy it up, etc. And i have to get rid of the spider webs in the corners in the ceiling - the hard to reach places.

    I still need a whole apartment plan. but this sorta stuff is what their focus is on, so let's just work on that for now while i can.

    I made progress then I ate, and ate, and it's a mess again! I'm going to try to get as much done as possible this morning before I go out. Definitely need to empty the bin though.

    Welp, I worked on finding my motivation and then halfway through the scrubbing my mom called in tears about wanting to go home.. I am devastated and I have no answers for her. She hung up after a 10 minute call and now I just sit here numb.

    So done with life, to be honest.. every time 1% goes well, I get 99% push back.. and when I work towards making free time so I can work on "me" instead of just doing everything for everybody else (I am honestly only cleaning the apartment because i get inspection.. to just name an example) I just get more shit piled up on it.

    It literally is as if everything is a torture and I just have to endure and tolerate it. A one way street life, and I just wait until I am 75 or something and I can check out.

    I am done for today, I don't have anything left in my engine now.

    Sleep has helped. I had a good chat at the end of the day too to help fix a few thoughts.

    Now that I am awake again at 5 am, I can start making a plan for Monday.

    Today's agenda includes 10->12a, grocery delivery. And 6->7pm, online voice chat meeting.

    So I can wake up now, clean a thing, wait for groceries. Then until 6pm I can clean. And then take the evening off.

    Good to hear you've made progress. I am going to try and disconnect the washing machine and move it away from it's place and realise how dirty that area is now and try to clean it properly.

    Thumbsup, nice job on making progress. And oh no, a table clearing, don't remind me. The livingroom talbe is like a storage unit haha. I better start tidying it up as well.

    Best of luck everybody this week

    Mini update

    The right side of the kitchen area has been taken care of. It at least looks visually okay. But inside cupboards needs to get figured out. The outside has been wiped off etc. For both the top and bottom ones.

    I have ordered a fine steel wool to scrub some surface areas that i can't clean properly and they need a bit of a polish.

    The sink is all sorted out. And the walls are mainly done. I've done a first run of getting rid of spider webs in the ceiling area, but my eyes were too shaky so gave up. I will come back to that.

    I've cleaned some more things in the bathroom, just to keep up with stuff, laundry has been done. 99% of the dishes as well.

    I've let the doors open and let the place air out a bit.

    What I still need to do is go to the things in the kitchen they might inspect, and the same for the bathroom/toilet and then the other rooms. I might actually give them a call tomorrow and ask if that's all they need access to, or if I can expect them to go through bedroom and all the rooms (ugh).

    Yes I should probably open the windows at some point to let the place air out too.

    Today's plan:

    Finish the kitchen
    Change the bedding
    Vacuum

    I haven't done that yet, I have changed the bedding, done the first load of washing up and got the washing machine on. Oh and taken the rubbish out.

    Still to do:
    Washing up
    Vacuuming
    Recycling out
    Open windows! When the sun comes out

    Nice^^

    I am dizzy :/

    Groceries arrived, stove area is cleaned. Most stuff in the kitchen is done.

    My back and eyes and body are like 'go lie down'

    Once I know when the DHL deliveries arrive I will take a 2 hour nap probably.

    Just had lunch, next up it to get the last bit of washing up done.

    I did open the blinds in the bedroom, and met windows full of condensation, so put the dehumidifier on.
    Washing is on the airers.

    Need to clean the little shelf thing I use as an extra worktop, It's actually a 2x1 Ikea Kallax shelf that is next to the only free plug socket I have, so I frequently use it as an extra worktop. Hopefully then I'll get the dehydrator down from the top of the fridge and use that for the apples and pineapple I have here that really need eating!

    Woah, you've done lots !

    I got really dizzy at some point and had to make phone calls. I took an hour of rest in bed and made those calls. I think I am done cleaning for today. Kinda worried if I push things today that I will not have the motivation tomorrow.

    Hoovering tomorrow - maaaaybe tonight.

    Trash is all thrown out as well.
