From the title...im really overwhelmed...my messy shambles of a house is really starting to get to me, its quite depressing. i feel silly posting but its actually making me angry and despondant. its that bad at the moment that im thinking i need to take a couple of annual leave days to tidy it up!!!!
i work three days....so nothing gets done on those days besides the general kitchen tidy up, dishes etc..come thursday i need to start doing the washing again...its not just toys etc its everything, nothing is in its place there is just $h!t on tables, floors, benches etc....mess everywhere, clothes on the floor mine & DH etc etc etc....every single room in a big 4 bedroom house. Usually i can manage to just pack stuff away but cupboards are overflowing with staff , its needs a proper overhaul....but the idea of taking days off work to do this is appalling and i find that if i DO try to spend the neccasary hours on it on days i dont work my DS ends up stuck on the ipad all day (which i hate) and DD follows me around crying for me to pay attention to her.....so its frustrating for me and them and i give up....DH often works 6 days a week so on his day off i like us to go out together or we tend to have something on.
what am i doing wrong? ive been back at work 3 months and its driving me crazy. please give me your tips. I was hoping to get a cleaner once a fortnight at some point as well....but day to day what do u do?
