Stuck at home during lockdown - with a dirty home...
Is it okay to shine and wine?
This is for all the heroes right now living in this Covid induced society...yep, these harsh times have resulted in living, working and playing in the same location...HOME.
By all means, everyone has their own way of their upkeep of their palace by either organising mess into a nice little pile, tucked away out of sight or fully in hype mode of ‘clean home, clean mind’.
Either one of you can admit, after a long day of home schooling or just conquering the 9-5 hours to then swivel that chair around and mentally transport into your front room for the evening, the tasks of life admin are not entirely done with for the day. Or ever, come to think of it.
The instructions and safety around reaching for the bottle in your marigolds works like this…
Write a list of what you want to achieve in your evening clean – everyone secretly buzzes off a list that gets ticked off.
Grab a ‘non glass’ glass. We certainly need to prepare for spillages with clumsy feet work and underestimated movements.
Set limits to your alcohol consumption…as you want to wake the next morning with a sense of pride and not confusion that someone broke in and cleaned up
Get your tunes lined up with the most inspiration beats to get that body jiving. This is so important. Ever attempted a workout in silence? Hmm not as fun right?
Definitely do not go overboard. In both regards, wining or shining. This is a hazard to yourself and the rest of the household. You certainly do not want to give the impression that you are good at cleaning for it to become your task solely. Also, you want to allow enough wine to sit back and enjoy your tremendous artwork after the list has been completed.
So, as it goes, there are little loopholes into efficiency and fun. As The Tams said, ‘Be young, be foolish but be happy’ and oh gosh don’t we need a bit of light heartedness now and then and more than ever during these times.
Conclusion. Shine and wine, yeh sure…if it’s not an ongoing cleaning ritual. And remember to drink and clean responsibly.
Just a little pick-me-up and is only meant to be read in jest guys! Stay safe lovelies and hopefully life can return to normal soon. x
