Where to Start?

It’s
official my house is a tip!

The dog does not like sitting on the laminated flooring,
so instead she drags her half chewed towels around the house so she has
somewhere comfy to lie down. She could
have prime position on the sofa but no it’s much more fun to make the house
look a complete shambles by dragging various sheets, towels and blankets from
room to room! Heaven forbid we have
unexpected visitors I think they would assume we had been ransacked between the
dogs efforts and the boys general chaos!

I
want to have a home I am proud to open the door to my friends, not one I
secretly hope no one visits! But it’s
hard keeping on top of it all. The
washing pile grows, the dog chews, the boys collect clutter (“oh look mum
another interesting shaped stone”, whilst I feign enthusiasm!) and the house
slowly and surely turns into an unmanageable mess.

So
I am going to make a few changes to hopefully improve the state of the
house! I don’t think the level of
disorganisation is good for my feng shui! 
I am going to get some rugs from the Rug Mountain so the dog stops moving
her belongings from room to room, she should settle down nicely on one of those
comfortable mats. It’s worth a try anyway.

I
am going take serious action and return ALL toys to the playroom; our family
living room will hopefully become a place of (relative) calm not one where you
have to walk the gauntlet of LEGO just to get to the safety of the sofa!!!

Then at least if someone comes around
unannounced I can at least sit him or her comfortably in one room!

I
will make a housework rota and give out the boys little jobs they can do to
help. Eldest mentioned last night he
was keen to try some hovering more regularly, let’s see how long that lasts
before the novelty wears off, but any help however short lived would be
appreciated. The review items pile up,
the dust gathers and it seems such an insurmountable task it feels easier not to
even try and just put the kettle on…
