Hello my dear friends and followers!
I hope this blog finds you well, in good health and in a good mood as well. So… how are you?
I am well. Well… I am without a fixed job and put a pause to my studies from March because of this situation, as I explained to you on my first blog. But not complaining. Yes, it can be hard at times because we have three children. But hey… it could be worse. We do what we can. Let us stay on the positive side. We won’t die because of hunger…we are going on, let us put it this way.
Unfortunately, there are more people that are in a worse position. So, let us (let me), shut up and start my blog number two.
For whoever doesn’t know me; I am a very organised person. I like everything to be in order and in its place. I like my mind to be specifically trained for my daily schedule that is why I always plan my days, my weeks, my months… hehehe and even year. But I will come to that later 😊
I feel sometimes that I am robot – programmed to work very effectively. And you know what – I wouldn’t want me any other way. Because if I wasn’t the way I am – very efficient – nothing will be done around here!
So… let me explain to you a clear picture of my typical day..
I wake up at around 0500-0530. Yes.. everyone is still asleep and I can enjoy a few moments for me. As soon as I open my eyes, I go directly to the washing machine and put in the first load. Then I head to do myself a coffee. After I stay for around fifteen minutes sipping my coffee and strolling round through the various social media application on my mobile, I head to the sink. I see if there isn’t anything left from the previous evening and I put it in its place.
Then I clean the carpets, shake ‘em a bit and put them up.
Afterwards I head to the various bins around the house and empty them in the main trash.
After washing my hands for 20 seconds…hahaha…(got used to the timing now), I get a clean cloth and antibacterial spray and clean all the kitchen and lounge surfaces. Then I clean the rubbish bin from the outside start the next task.
Sweeping time baby. Obviously, I am very careful not to make any noise in order not to wake up anybody. So, I sweep everywhere. And if there is the need in washing the kitchen, I will do it too.
After I am done.. I prepare all the mugs ready to make teas, hot chocolates etc…
Then I go for a shower – some blissful me time again 😊
After having a shower, I go upstairs on the roof and I water all my plants. I sweep and wash the roof sometimes too – most of the days – because of the dog’s poop.
While I am there, I say hello and play a bit with the lovely cats that come and say miao from I do not know where :/ But I do not complaint. It is like that became ours now.
I prepare their bowls, and the dog’s bowls with food and water. And then I go and get the washing, pit the second load in and go and hand the clothes on the roof.
After I am done, I head downstairs and start cooking. Usually I am all done from the most important things that I need to do around 0830-0900.
Afterwards I come back upstairs and put the washing up again. If there is the need to do more I do them.. well I do what there is the need to.
But then I come up here, in my shed to check up with the orders.
I start working and doing other various things, like catching up with the clients messages and emails, buying supplies for my business etc..
At around 1100 my stomach starts grumbling and usually at that time I go and eat.
I take of the washing after eating and put them in their place. Mind you – I do them in a sequence accordingly to the rooms I will by first to last passing by so that I waste no time.
After that I usually try to rest for half an hour. Mind you – I try to close my eyes and maybe sleep?! But my brain is always active. So, every single day I give up – and get up and continue doing what I was doing prior this.
At around 1600 it is a BIG MUST in our house to have tea. I do not know how we got into this thing from since I can remember. But there isn’t a day that does go by that tea is served at 1600 sharp. Sometimes I prepare the ironing board and switch on the iron to heat up while I am having my tea, so when I am done, I go and iron some clothes up.
After this – it is usually shower time for me again – because my battery stars lowering at this time of the day. So I go have a shower and freshen up and afterwards see what I have got left to do regarding work.
Then when my hubby comes I usually go down so we can greet each other and stay downstairs with him and my youngest daughter – if not they will come up.
At around 1900/2000 we go on the sofa and watch something on tv. Its is usually something on YouTube or else Netflix.
At that point.. My battery goes down to maybe 10% …and my eyes start shutting down… I try the best I can to stay awake. And when I cannot take it anymore I come upstairs, in our bedroom; take off the million pillows that decorate the bed.. get comfy – watch something on my mobile which will help me sleep and goodnight my friend.
That is my daily routine mostly.
There are days which are non-stop for me; were I have to dust and wash the whole house from top to bottom.
There are days where I do not stop cooking.
There are days which I would like to stay and read a bit instead of watching tv.
Of course, there are days where we go and do our shopping.
And last but not least there are those days, where the weather just calls us to get up – dress up – and go and live the life!
P.S. Sorry I am going to mention my yearly planning episode in this blog! But I will surely do it in the next.
I will have some tips for you which will make your life easier – so make sure you do not miss it!
Until the next one…
Stay positive – stay safe – love you loads,
