    The crazy thing is is would absolutely LOVE a 3-4 hour block of uninterrupted time to clean! It is my idea of a real treat right now!

    With a 5 month old, there's no chance I get several hours uninterrupted! Ahaha. I wish. I make the most of when he's down for a sleep or happily distracted in his bouncer or something xD

    I wash dishes daily but a thorough clean of the fridge and cupboards probably twice a year!
    Carpets and floors when ever it needs a clean, change bed sheets and beddings monthly.
    Window sills....probably once a year.
    Outside the house, haven't cleaned it since we moved in 4 years ago.
    Everything else gets a wipe down weekly or fortnightly.
    Toys......only once in the last 4 years!

    I know I don't clean enough, but I don't know where to find the time to clean more
    I work pretty much full time from home with 2 kids under 3.5 both full time at home and 33 weeks pregnant and hubby is working at our shop 7 days a week at the moment.
    Thinking about hiring a cleaner but I don't know if there's a point since I will definitely be cleaning for the cleaner.

    Anyone else?
    That does sound like ALOT of cleaning
    TBH I don't have set times where I clean as it's constant with all my kids at home with me 24/7 next yr oldest starts school but I'll be due to have a baby. In saying that I clean constantly my house is still messy with bits and pieces they do constantly. That's how it is with kids you can clean the floors but in seconds they'll throw their toys and pillows there. You sound like your doing your best, maybe if you could get a cleaner to do your washing from washing hanging it out and folding it in baskets that's something you won't be cleaning for the cleaner'

    Lol after reading all the replies I definitely feel I don't clean enough!
    I tried to clean more today while at home with the kids and I just don't know how you guys do it!
    I would be constantly cleaning, all day everyday to keep the place clean!
