    Mini update, had a chat with nix and have a drink, had a bit of food, started laundry, emptied dishwasher, threw away some things, thought about a lot of stuff, and had a chat with my mom. At the farm a window broke with the storm, so that took me away from cleaning. anyway, made SOME progress, and more to come, i have a bit of an overview and a start in a room was made i never thought i would make a start in. so.. mental barrier broken. therapist would be happy

    I was going to have a cleaning day, but the weather was good this morning and I went and got the table and chairs from my mothers. Only to bring it back and realise that I don't have all the screws, the frame of the table is done but not the chairs. It does need a good clean though so I'll get that done before Sunday and pick up the rest then.

    I have done two loads of laundry that's now out on the airers, probably around half the washing up, I'll have to keep on top on the cleaning if she's going to help me with the table top on Sunday.

    Friday;

    Synced up the inf:wave:plans with my sister who takes care of the movers for 15th/17th. So .. done that.

    I really have to take another look at laundry and dishes, so I do not fall behind.

    There's a storm and my apartment is like "okay, you just hoovered, let's displace all the left over dust everywhere", so I guess I have to do that again.

    There's administration to do: eh, just take the money, skipping thinking about that.

    Woke up with a hefty headache, so super slow start today.

    The room that i feared the most has progress done to it and I will go through the pile of dvd/cd today.

    The TV closet that is going away finally, I have to go through that and find a place to put that stuff. I hope to make a start with that as well.

    If my eyes/headache allow it, I will throw out some stuff I have collected to thrown out. But there are enough days that I can do it now. So, be, it.

    First, coffee, pills, croissant with cheese, and some minecraft maintenance. Then offline life again.

    I have those mover dudes coming, and I have an old couch. I do not know if I wanna keep the couch or use this opportunity for them to take it with them and then get a new couch in the future.

    My todo list for today includes hoovering the floor, get some trash out, organize the living room and then walk through every room making sure I didn't forget things.

    Clothes are on a chair, but they are clean now, I just have to .. eh fold? .. yeah sure , i will fold them :D

    Yep, more washing up for me as well today, I have another load and then I have some old wool things that will be risky but I have to do it.

    A present for a friend? Is it someone's birthday soon? :D

    I have been cleaning the junk from the top of the white closet in the livingroom. I have put everything i need to keep in a box, and everything else i threw out.
    The box is now in another location with other family boxes.

    So I got bored of cleaning, as you do, and decided to take a bunch of online quizzes instead! The internet has told me that I should go see a doctor as I'm highly likely to have ADHD not sure how true that is, or how much I really dislike cleaning!

    I suppose I should get offline and finish the washing up!

    I've made progress, but I am not done, and it's almost midnight and I have to get up earrly... AAAH

    But I've worked on the kitchen, bathroom and toilet today. And I've made more room, and tidied the livingroom a bit, I got the trash together and I am ready for some more things. I will stay up and sleep short, and push through tomorrow and then when they're gone I just go sleep and repeat for the 17th, and then die in peace lol

    Monday:

    It is now almost 9am. I have texted my sister that I set my alarm to 10, so I have an extra hour of just waking up haha (and I need that lol)

    I have to first hover in the livingroom, there's so much dust collecting everywhere and from moving stuff around it is like 'oh hello i am dust, nice to meet you', I might as well do an extra hoovering.

    Then I have to move chairs into the back, so they're out of the way and it's easier to walk in and put boxes down.

    And I have trash to throw out, and I need to check my mailbox anyway downstairs.

    The entrance to the livingroom has things that on the 17th the other moves will have to take with them. But they're in the way for today, I have to move that to the side.

    And that's all I can do for today, besides a shower.

    Well I didn't get everything done yesterday, just closed the bedroom door when mum came over with the table top! So today's main job will be to finish putting the table and chairs together and giving that all a clean.
