All I want for Christmas… Is a lovely clean home!
On the first day of December every year my internal alarm bell starts sounding, it’s time to start the big Christmas clean!
There’s nothing more warming than waking up Christmas day to a cosy, pristine and clean home.
I can see it now, presents under the tree, heating on full blast and the fresh smell of ! Bliss.
The problem is I never know where to start and feel totally overwhelmed. I am a complete and utter clean freak living inside a junk-yard. I spend most days not getting much done because I start one job and then move on to another because that needs doing first and then “crap” that needs doing before that, you get the picture!
My kids are grotty little creatures, and I definitely have my work cut out for me.
Where do I start with the big Christmas clean?
I refuse to spend this Christmas Day in a dump!
This year, I have decided to ditch my usual “technique” and get organised by doing a bit at a time. An untidy and dirty home is the one thing that gets me down, it sends my whole world into chaos. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone here.
Tidy house + Tidy mind!

It’s important not to forget yourself at this time of year either.
Most importantly, you mustn’t forget to look after yourself no matter what, apparently, needs doing.
In the very accurate words of Yvonne (my mother)! “The mess isn’t going anywhere, it will all still be there tomorrow, so take a break for now!
Be sure to take some time each day for self-care and look after yourself as well as the house.
