I know today I owe you a blog post, but I am just soo tired. I have been pondering what to write all day.. I feel I have so much to tell you about and fill you in on but I just can’t think of anything. My mind is drawing a blank. I can’t help but feel it has something to do with the fact I am just warn out.
I stayed up stupidly late last night trying to clean the house (spoiler alert: I did some but not all of what I needed to do) and I lazed in this morning to make up for the stupidly late night, meaning I need to go to mine and pack (again) before heading to my folks for the weekend. The weather forecast seems varied so I have no idea what to pack and I am just so sick of the packing and unpacking. Also, it plays havoc with the housekeeping. I never seem to manage to get everything away before I pack again… I used to have a bedroom floor now there is a pile of clothes.
I hate it.
It makes me ashamed of my beautiful little house and also it stops me from having people round to visit as I don’t want them to see the mess.
I have managed to (just about) get a grip on downstairs. In fact I dusted and polished last night. I washed up after dinner and cleaned the bathroom. But then I caught up on my viewing of the 100 rather than hoovering or mopping the floors.
Upstairs got dusted and I even did all above the doors and wafted my duster at the corners of the room while shouting “spiders, you need to not live here” – not that I have spiders, but I like to warn them away anyway!
Mum and Dad had Poppy last night which helped massively. It means she didn’t get out but it did mean that I didn’t need to spend two of the hours I was at home playing with her. Not that I mind, but since Poppy has started chewing wallpaper I will no longer leave her in the lounge alone which means I either spend time with her or time cleaning the upstairs (another spoiler alert: time with her always wins!)
I have downloaded cleaning hacks until my inbox over runneth with them, I promise myself that “tomorrow I will change” on a daily basis.
My counselor said something would have to give or I would drive myself insane… but the state of the house seems to be doing that anyway.
I just wish there were a few more hours in the day.
