Wash on Monday

In 2012, Home Making, November 2012 on November 11, 2012 at 10:24 pm

I seem to be in a constant battle with the house regarding general tidiness. (I suspect, at heart, I was designed to be surrounded by thousands of servants). I started ‘spring cleaning’ the house more than two years ago in an attempt to get it in some sort of order after we moved and only half heartedly unpacked.

Well, two years on all the rooms (bar my study) have been unpacked and sorted, and now it just remains to go back and tidy and put away in all the rooms before I begin the attempt to keep the house clean (which sounds like just as much work, to be honest).

As a result, I’ve decided to adapt the good old saying:
Wash on Monday
Iron on Tuesday
Mend on Wednesday
Shop on Thursday
Clean on Friday
Bake on Saturday
Rest on Sunday

Unfortunately, if we used Monday as washing day no one would have clean work/school clothes to start the week. So instead, I think my saying will go:

Wash on Sunday
Garden on Monday
Rest on Tuesday
Mend on Wednesday
Shop on Thursday
Clean on Friday
Bake on Saturday

Do you think I’ll have any luck doing it this way?
And how would you have to organise the poem to fit your life?
