Recently, because my house is in the middle of a bunch of repair works due to a leak from upstairs, I’ve been living like a sloth. A very GRUBBY sloth. But I follow UFYH so I do always have a clean, made, bed. ANYWAY.
20 minutes can lead to SUCH magicalness. My house is still a building site (and it is still depressing) but, thanks to a well timed 20-10 bathroom challenge it is now a CLEAN AND TIDY building site.
Because my bathroom is clean, I cleaned the kitchen (20-10. Just one. AMAZING and mostly a result of still unfucking tommorrow morning on a daily basis).
Because they were both clean I spent a few minutes in each of them (less 5 in the bathroom whilst my tea was in the microwave was enough for a quick wipe down and swiff and that’s all it needed to be gleaming) this evening before I sat down to eat.
Then, because I was excited by my clean kitchen whilst I was doing my dishes (well, who’d want to ruin a wiped and clean kitchen with a couple of dirty plates?) I cleaned the microwave (I nuked a cup of boiling water and vinegar with my kitchen sponge in it - result: clean sponge, de-tannined mug, easily wiped micro) and wacked on a quick load (in new spangly machine it takes 15 minutes. MAGICAL, and I had the microfibre cloths I’d been wiping round with to wash) of laundry and I’m just having a quick cup of decaff before I swiff around the rest place (it all looks clean, swiffing it will KEEP it that way).
Thank you for giving me the impetus to START UFYH, because THAT’s given me the impetus to keep going and I’m coping with my space being horribly, horribly disrupted by building works SO much better than I was. No pictures until the plaster (drywall) is back up on the walls, though ;).
