I had a soporific morning – woke up with some sinus pain, took some meds, then napped. Also it was too hot to do anything.
When I finally scraped myself off the couch, I set about cleaning the house and doing the laundry.
Society tells us that we should be hygienic and we should not live in a dirty house.
What hit me, though, is the pointlessness of it all – I mean, it will all get dirty again, right? Sigh.
Mum came over today, and did some ironing for us. Ironing is one of my less enjoyed domestic tasks. Personally, I like sweeping better. I sweep the floor every day, almost. Dust and dirt comes up a lot on our darkwood flooring. Sweeping is rewarding, and it does not take long.
And also – a bit of a poll – how often do you change your bed linen? Daily? Weekly? Fortnightly? When it smells? I do like to lie in freshly laundered bed linen. In Japan, some of our hotels changed the bed linen every day. Very eco-unfriendly. They also love plastic bags.
Thankyou for your comments on yesterday’s post. I do not doubt that I am very blessed, and remember this every day. I am normally motivated and brave (sassy, in fact), but just at the moment, these are at a low ebb. It is getting better, but it has been a struggle. I try not to give into the torpor, the mental fog and lassitude, and always try and get up and do something. This was what I was getting at in my post.
And I will give tomorrow my best shot! I am glad the weather will be better 🙂
