Last week wasn’t a great week for housework. I seem to be saying that a lot, hey? Sigh, I really wish I wasn’t.
I had planned to do all of the housework on Friday after coming back from my parents’ house and on Saturday before we went out for dinner with Mr Monkey’s family. But the weather was horrible on Friday so I decided to stay another night at my parents’ house. I had then planned to come home early on Saturday but ended up sleeping in until midday and only doing a quick tidy up in the afternoon once I got home.
But this week I am home all week so I have no excuse. I am going to get this house in to order. I’m going to do all of my kitchen tasks, plus some of the tasks that I didn’t get done last week. I’m going to start my monthly de-cluttering task (more on that later). If I don’t get it done… well, I’m not sure what will happen but basically I won’t be very happy with myself.
So here’s what I’m going to do in the kitchen:
- ♥ Sweep floor
- ♥ Scrub stove top
- ♥ Clean cupboard doors
- ♥ Clean out fridge
- ♥ Clean small appliances
- ♥ Clean big appliances (outside fridge etc)
- ♥ Mop floor
- ♥ Clean microwave
What do you have planned for the week?

Not as much got done last week as I would’ve liked. I’m not sure what happened but I just seemed very slow in getting things done. Lily had been in a pretty horrible mood for most of the week and was very clingy so she probably slowed me down a bit.
However, by the end of the week I managed to get the house fairly under control. I got all of the Zone Tasks done in the Bedroom, as well as re-organised our nappy storage in to the new boxes. I vacuumed upstairs and downstairs and tried to get through all of the dishes. Not great, but much better than what it was at the beginning of the week.
So, here’s my plan for the Computer Room this week:
- ♥ Dust
- ♥ Tidy computer desk
- ♥ Tidy off top of drawers
- ♥ Tidy off top of bookshelves
- ♥ Vacuum
- ♥ De-clutter cupboard
- ♥ Sort Lily’s clothes
So there you have it, my plan for the week. I’ll let you know how I go at the end of the month.
What do you have planned for this week?
