    My home is a mess

    My home is a mess 10th Apr 11 at 10:11 AM
    Due to various reasons (ill health, work issues, family problems) over the past 6 months my home has become very messy and in certain places dirty

    I am so far behind with housework and so exhausted at the weekends that it is all I can do to keep up with the kitchen, bathroom and clothes, towels and bedding washing.

    OH has been great - helping with the tasks he is set but the house now needs

    1. A bloody good declutter
    2. A really deep clean
    3. Money spent on it

    The task is sooo over whelming that I would rather not start than start and get half way through and abandon it.

    Help!!!

    I have read the declutter thread and the old style daily cleaning plan - the problem is that as soon as health deteriorates I lose track and the mess starts again. OH has to look after me when I am not well so he cant do that and pick up the house slack too.

    Have been up since 7 and done 3 washings - that is the darks, lights, towels and now I am doing the bedding. 10am and I am pooped.
