Chores, chores, chores . . .

Sometimes I wonder if my house will ever be truly clean. I do try and keep on top of things, but it seems that no sooner have I done one job, it needs doing again. I guess with three humans and two cats living in a terraced house, we're going to generate dust, but sometimes I'm really shocked at just how quickly the surfaces get covered again!

I think I may need to make myself a daily cleaning schedule and then at least if some of the jobs get done on it, it's better than nothing, right?

I found this handy one at www.housetohome.co.uk

Available to download here.

This calendar looks like it might be a good starting point, but there are some jobs like vacuuming the floors and the wiping of kitchen sides that really need doing daily in our house (sometimes even more frequently!).

It is hard to keep on top of everything and look after a toddler all day (and be pregnant!); however, it does feel sometimes that because I'm not working, there isn't really much of an excuse for washing up to be on the kitchen surface, or for weeds to be taking over the garden!

What about you? Do you have a set routine? How do you keep on top of your chores?

I feel sloth-ful looking at that calendar! Everything moves one column left in my house with an extra one on the right - "every 5 years"!
