Through a process of trial and error over the last couple of years, I have realised that there are in fact, a series of activities that once undertaken, will improve the way that the day goes immeasurably. At the moment the undertaking of these few tasks seems to make an incredible difference. Weird really, perhaps I could employ hired help for 10 minutes, as that this all takes to complete these tasks. I am a bit silly and lazy after all:
- Empty the dishwasher. I have begun to gauge the day on whether I can complete this task or not. If I can, things will go well, work surfaces will remain clear and I will be able to cook something other than fish fingers and chips.
- Empty the bin. If I can do this, we don’t have a mountain of recycling to wade through. Making entry into the kitchen actually possible.
- Put a load of washing on. If this is done, I wont be spending all night waiting for it to finish.
So there you have it, domestic advice from the Being a Mummy household. You know you wanted it.
