Weekend is over and we start a fresh new week … I love Mondays ..to me it signifies a new start and full of all good intentions…… so what if by Tuesday they have all gone out the window … I always start the week well.
Today I have a day off work and as usual a list as long as my arm of things I want to do and get done. It is also payday today so bills have been paid and later Maya (my daughter ) wants a lift to go and get some shopping of course I don’t mind at all as I get to spend some time with my gorgeous munchkin Ruby.
So as well as that I have already made a start on the household chores that didn’t get done yesterday and really want to get up into the sewing room at some point even if I only get some fabric and patterns sorted it would be a start.
Over the weekend Hubbs and I had a short conversation about how he’d put the rubbish bin out for me …. I normally say ”oh thank you ” but this time I replied … ”for me??” he then hastily reworded the statement to ”I put the bin out for the family ”.
This got me thinking about the chores that I do …some things are really chores, things I really don’t like doing…like sorting the recycling or clearing away dishes. There are also the chores I like to do like straightening up the front room, vacuuming, dusting and clearing the clutter that gathers from nowhere. I enjoy sorting washing and actually doing the ironing too but hate putting away those piles of fresh laundry. I get a great feeling of achievement when all the kitchen sides are decluttered and clear again. I’d like to think I keep a good house, I would like to think I’m house proud but not to the extreme. So today will be a mix of liked and disliked chores rewarded at the end of the day with some time in my sewing space.
Each Sunday or Monday I also like to do myself a plan of things to do for the week making sure I have a good mix. This week I’m working tues/wed/thur so normally pencil some nice things to do before or after my shift.
Looking at the weather forecast it doesn’t look like I need to pencil in any gardening time I’m desperate to get out a clear a carpet of vine weed that has appeared overnight but that won’t take more than an hour so will run out between showers.
Oh dear I’m starting to waffle so better get off ….. good timing 🙂 as the washer is on spin.
Have a good week peeps what ever your up to 🙂
