Cleaning made Easy - get a routine

January was all about decluttering.  February is all about getting a cleaning routine and making it a habit.  Now I am not saying that this is going to be the same for everyone, it needs to work for you, so that you follow it and it becomes second nature.

This is a lesson I learned from Flylady.  BY creating a routine that I follow, daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly and annually I am always pretty much on top of the cleaning and my house looks presentable most of the time.

To start I am going to make a note of all the jobs I carry out on a daily basis and would like you to do the same and also if they are morning, noon or night jobs.

Then I am going to move on to the weekly or bi-weekly jobs and monthly ones.

You might like to have a book for this.  I prefer a spreadsheet  which I can then print off and pop in a file.  Having this meant that when I was in hospital MadDad continued on doing the jobs that I did, maybe not everyday, but he did everything that was essential to keep the home ticking over.

I love this routine from  So today I want you to have a think about the jobs that you need to do on a daily basis to keep things ticking over


  1. I'm so intune with you at the minute! As you know January was about decluttering for me too and Feb is about getting the routines of cleaning down!

    I find that if I do a proper clean on a Monday (burn off the calories) and then do my Fly routines the rest of the week I'm a happy bunny... quick give me a clue what's March going to be?!

  2. Fancy coming to organise me Jen :-)

  4. It is known that clean environment protects from several type of disease. It is very necessary to clean the surrounding area, for that purpose, it is always best to hire commercial cleaning service providers. Professionals use proper cleaning mechanism as well as proper cleaning products and make cleaning very easy.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.

Don't feel pressured in to spending at Christmas and a giveaway

According to a recent survey by  Whyte & Mackay    46.2% of people confess to feeling pressured into spending £100-£200 more than they can afford.    I have to admit that this really shocked me, but them with the rising cost of things and also the unrealistic expectations of people it is often very hard to keep a lid on spending. Other irritations were: ·          Christmas dinner preparations (25%) . The most common complaint is when mum-in-laws unfavourably compare the way dinner is served to the ‘proper way’ (i.e. her way). ·          Cruel present choices (24%). The majority felt that parent-in-laws purposefully bought presents for them that they wouldn’t like, from terrible Christmas jumpers to regifting items already in their cupboards. ·          Fighting over board games (15%). The most frenetic choice is the team game of charades with 34% of those who have fought with their parent-in-laws coming to blows. Monopoly is the board game that seems to cause the least amoun
