Well now all the work is done! But guess what else? I have a new found pattern, whenever a dish gets dirty wash it immediately and not allow myself to procrastinate on it. Also I have put laundry baskets in all bedrooms and bathrooms so no more clutter on the floors and having to do 13 loads in 2 days. I know these things are what most already do but in this case we are starting as simple as possible to achieve the most. A life. So after all these new found activities and decluttered items I will be going onto the kitchen cabinets and bathroom cabinets for tomorrow. I hope some of this helps and lets you know it doesn't matter where you start as long as you keep going forward.
I live alone so I have nobody to please but myself, but I don't please myself, Untill I have cleared something like 3 days washing up I never have a moments relaxation because of the waiting time I need to attack these dishes with first washing them under the running tap then putting bleach into the cups before rinsing. My cutlery is soaking in a large jug of washing up liquid and again, bleach.
I stack my washes dishes waiting to be washed.
After all that I am happy to put the kettle on for a cup of tea.
I am half way to relaxed. but, beware of waiting too long to finalise as the next lot of dishes are on there way. (by now I dont have a single piece of cutlery to use )
So at last I fill a bowl full of lovely hot water and washing-up liquid, washing up is now a breeze.
I can sit back with a feeling of contentment.
I wonder is it worth putting off washing the dishes at lease once a day?
The satifaction at the end is so worth all the pain.
p.s. My daughters have bought me a dish washer for christmas, I am now waitingfor it to be plummed in. I just know I will love it.
