    OMG! I know why is it so difficult!! I loathe it.
    Laundry dishes cooking blah blah!
    I feel I am always failing. I have never been dirty just cluttered.
    I find it very difficult to maintain neatness consistently
    It’s wxjausting. I work full time no kids and I dig.
    My hubby is amazing and helps a lot but he gets frustrated at my lack of motivation when it comes to keeping up with the house.
    And duh! Yes it would be easier if I would clean as I go and I would if I could wrap my brain around that concept!

    I've been finding gathering everything that's out of place onto the lounge then sorting it and packing away helps, seems a bit less overwhelming and the house overall looks tidier more quickly. For washing up , hanging out etc I need to spend time sorting stuff first otherwise I feel like I don't get anywhere.

    I moved into a small caravan once and it was easy to just reach out and put things back without moving rather than just putting it down. My OCD friend was shocked by how tidy it was
    It takes me ages to think out a simplified system--I wonder if there is a list of dyspraxic household tips somewhere.I use a tumble drier as I can't keep track of washing drying and keep socks together. I tend to keep things in a pile,'box or Ikea bag.
    At the end of a tidy up miscellaneous things end up in a box together.

    I'm terrible and since I have been on my own and now covid-19 means no one is coming round it has got ridiculous . Put it this way I have a gas safety check next Monday and I just booked Friday off to give me 3 days to sort the kitchen floor out!
