    More dishes, more trash, more of the same - but now I am also focussing on the plants. Some need extra water, and extra sunlight. I have to stop neglecting them.

    I got a bit done yesterday before I went out, around half the washing up and I hoovered the kitchen.

    Want to get the rest of the washing up done today if possible, see how I feel after work, then tomorrow I can move on tot he mountain of clothes that need putting away

    10am, i am up, and ready to get started. yikes. Let's see how far I get.

    Step 1, I can start the dish washer and the washing machine. just to stay on top of that.

    Maybe step 2 will be to clean the trash in the kitchen and throw the trash out.

    laundry, dishes, kitchen .. updated. I tried to tidy the bedroom a bit and organized boxes in a small room a little.

    I tried my best to sleep well, I think it went well enough. My arm does hurt today but not as bad as yesterday. I've instantly went and emptied the dryer, emptied the dishwasher, and moved things around. I've 75% cleaned the stove area (before it would have been worse and twice the effort). Sitting down now with a cup of coffee and installing security updates on the minecraft servers.

    It's kingsday today in the Netherlands.

    Gottah make a start :)

    Doing a little better today, most of the washing up is done, hoovering is done (just don't look behind the sofa!)

    Haven't yet made a start on the pile of stuff to put away, but washing machine is full and ready to go in the morning.

    I do not dare yet to vacuum the apartment, but I have to soon. I will try to move more things out of the way today and put things in their place. Make room for hovering, and see how much my arm can handle.

    Right, cuppa tea then get that washing up finished. If I can get that, and put the washing machine on before work then I'm happy

    Depending on how much time I have I might strip the bed too ready to change the bedding after work.

    The cover for the balcony showed up today, instead of next week. It's thin enough thankfully that some light comes through, but this helps me. And I like that I have some cover again. I used some zipties to hang it up to check the size in case I had to send it back. It is fine. I am content with it. I have to tidy up and clean things, before I decide the final setup. I have options I guess.

    Anyway, my arm needs rest now :/ so doing smaller stuff inside apartment now instead.

    I can't imagine this lasting longer than one winter storm though. So I will just assume I have to buy this every year. I wonder if it's smart to just buy this 3 more times and put it in storage.

    Every human in the world will regret this. We forget about it and want to go to bed, only to find 'crap, we will have to do the bedding'. haha. Best of luck! Might as well do it now.

    in face, going to my bedroom now and seeing what i can do.

    Fair enough xD

    DId a bit in the bedroom, and then went back to the balcony. I tried the rope method but didn't like it. I went with zipties, just have to pinch the ends off now.

    But, back to inside work, my arm hurts lol. Maybe more kitchen stuff, I also have a bunch of boxes on the floor that I need to tear into smaller bits and throw out.

    I only just got out of bed, not really feeling so great today. Dunno why.

    Will start to do motivation things soon.

    I had an offline project for months, and at least I finished that yesterday. I hope it doesn't backfire. We will see.

    More and more things have been slacking offline. Mainly because of stress and trying to avoid stressers. But it's time for the nice weather to say hello, move more, cycle more, fix more things, and work on me and my apartment. I Hope i can start scheduling towards that.
