There’s such a lot of work needs doing to keep the house and office clean any time of year ut in winter especially. Just trying to keep on top of the tasks seems daunting and I have to say that if I don’t step on it and make sure I clear away after meals promptly, the place soon takes on a shambolic air. I personally struggle with the little things . . . . So how best to tackle and beat this. I try to read post as it arrives – using the action / recycle / bin principle. I also try very hard to time my meal preparation so that I am not rushing to eat and get cleared up before either going out or wanting to catch a favourite programme. But the best thing I have done is book a cleaner – my own hired Mrs. Mop. Oh my word this has been such a fantastic improvement to my life. The calm and professional manner in which these cleaning services are delivered really helps me to achieve greater success with my own attempts in the intervening days!
