A little while after my last post I got off my arse, set a timer for 10 minutes and did as much housework as I could within that time. After the 10 minutes was up I read 10 pages of one of my current books, then I did 10 minutes of housework again. I kept doing this (although the 10 minutes off I spent on varying things, play with kids, read, etc) until my house was looking ok. Rob was quite impressed with the neat & clean kitchen too!
It was so much easier doing housework like this… not certain if it would work with the bigger jobs – have to test it out!
