My focus has been on the real world rather than blogging over the past week.
We have had a long weekend here and a house-guest which was lovely.
Much of the time was spent chatting and being social so not too much housework was done. However it is interesting to look around and see that there was not too much that needed doing. I think that the trick is to do a little bit frequently.
It only takes a moment to get a few small jobs done. As you know, we do not arrive home from work until after 7pm. Last night I made salad while The Duke cooked the salmon on the BBQ. After dinner I hung out a load of washing that I had done before I went to work and brought in the dry clothes from the line and folded them. I also cleaned the vanity and mirror in the bathroom and re-made the guest bed.
This morning I unloaded the dishwasher and tonight will bring in the washing plus finish the ironing. There are only about 5 items as I did most of it on the weekend.
I simply do not have the time or inclination to spend huge chunks of time on housework so this method works best for me. It also means that my weekends are kept reasonably clear for spending time in the garden or more time-consuming jobs like preparing several meals.
