Today we have someone from a local bathroom fitting company coming to give us a quote for completely re-fitting our bathroom. I knew about this, obviously, and it's why I'm working from home today instead of being in the office for my colleague's last day at the company, but I forgot how embarrassed I am of our house.
I've mentioned before that I really struggle keeping up with things day to day. I'll read articles that say things like "it doesn't take effort to brush your teeth every day, you just do it" and think "wait, it doesn't take effort for some people!?" because almost every thing I do from getting out of bed takes effort. All this to say: our house is not clean.
And I don't mean that in the sense that there's clutter all over the place (there are a few hotspots but it's not too bad). I mean it in the sense that the kitchen counters are sticky and I've no idea why, the bathroom floor is edged with grime, the windowsills have a speckling of mould, the livingroom is littered with little plant bits that the dog brings in on his fur, the floor in the study is covered with clumps of dust and hair that have been formed by us moving around in there. It's disgusting.
James doesn't see it and I'm too tired and overwhelmed to tackle it. I'm seriously considering hiring a cleaning service to at least do the bathroom and kitchen every other week. It would work out to about £70 per month, so cheaper than both the dog and LARPing-while-boarding-the-dog, but more expensive than any of my other non-essential expenses.
I was going to find a good image and write more, but I'm kind of done for today.
