At the start of my maternity leave I was really hands on with tidying. Everyday – empty dishwasher, reload dishwasher, empty washing machine/tumble dryer, reload them, tidy/clean bedroom, keep the lounge tidy (ish), cooking dinner, cooking my OH work lunches…. And well you get the picture. I had motivation. Determination. Maybe it was my nesting phase?! I actually began to …
