Monday now is floor day. I tidy the toys in the lounge room and in the kids bedrooms then vacuum the house and wash the floors. I like doing it on Monday as I then get to enjoy it for the whole week basically on my own and once the weekend is finished it's well and truly due again.
Tuesday is bathroom day. This is one of my least favourite jobs as the main bathroom is the only unrenovated place left in our house. It is really uninspiring and I'm terribly guilty of just letting it slide as I can't face the dated and pokey space. But no longer! Every Tuesday it gets cleaned as well as the toilet and little powder room. Beautiful! And it doesn't look half as bad once it's clean.
Unfortunately there are always the jobs that need to be done every day - the washing up and the laundry. I don't mind washing clothes although (as my husband will confirm) I am hopeless at folding them up and putting them away.
The washing up however has become less of a chore since I was sent a bottle of Palmolive Divine Blends Vanilla & Berries to try out. Think of a lush, beautifully perfumed body wash you might buy for yourself - and then turn it into a dishwashing liquid. Dishwashing liquid was never something I'd given much thought to but this stuff is really yummy. A huge 700ml bottle costs just $4.99 RRP and you really only need a tiny squirt to ensure a huge sink full of scrummy bubbles. Don't do what I did the first time and slosh in a ton of it because you'll wind up with more bubbles than you know what to do with! You really only need a tiny squirt (as per the instructions on the bottle :) Not only does it smell delicious but it cuts through grease like nobodies business.
