I’m not doing too badly with my new habits - the dishes, bins, bathroom, kitchen - so far. Which isn’t to say I manage them all every day but I am getting better.
Previously if I didn’t do them all in the evening I would just let everything slip. Now I just do them as soon as I’ve got a handy few minutes - and as none of them take more than a few minutes that gets me back on track.
But, this week’s habit is making the beds - which is something I really do want to get done first thing as I find it so depressing when they’re still unmade half way through the day or even worse at bedtime. Some research into insomnia claims people sleep better in a well-made bed and I really do buy that.
Not having been instructed in the art since the brownies - several centuries ago! - I have to say my bed making skills are pretty poor. I really would love to be able to make a bed really well - hotel standard - really quickly and I've found loads of fab tips on this bed making Pinterest board on how to master the art.
But back on planet earth where I am still baby stepping my way to the most basic domestic competence I will just aim everyday to:
- Straighten the sheets
- Puff up the pillows
- Shake out the duvet and put it back on and smooth it out
Whether you're a domestic dummy like me or a full blown domestic goddess do come and talk housework, babies, parenting and other stuff on Twitter and Google+.
