During the holidays, our house tends to be clean, tidy, well-kept.
During termtime….it’s a different story.
I make lists, plans, schedules, but choosing chores rarely happens – there’s always other stuff to do!
My friend E posted this schedule on pinterest the other week, and I liked the simplicity. Just a few things to do each day.
My problem otherwise is that I get too ambitious.
Past Me always woefully overestimates how much Future Me will be willing and able to do.
It’s very easy to write in my planner that on a Wednesday night I’ll hoover the sitting room, iron a pile of shirts and cook up a batch of treats.
It’s very hard to do so on that Wednesday night after an extra long day at work, or an impromptu late night chat with the girls, or a date with Matthew!
Just called me a wannabe housewife. I love a good bit of homemaking, but it’s hard to fit it all in sometimes! So I try my best.
Don’t we all?
How do you get it all done, lovelies? Do you have a favourite chore? (Mine? Cooking and ironing) Or a most-hated chore? (Hoovering!).
