Do you tidy up in the evening?

  1. I do. I hate mess.

    Tidy up? Sorry, I don't know what you mean. It's not something that happens in my house.
     
  3. Oh how I wish there was a 'like' button!

    Nope, my living room is my office and always seems to look like a paper bomb has exploded. As much as I'd love the place to look super tidy I've got used to the fact it never will x
     
  5. Only so that there is enough room to put a coffee cup down first thing in the morning without fear of spillage!!
     
  6. Never. I like the idea of coming down in the morning to a tidy kitchen but I am too tired in the evenings to do anything other than cook and eat supper. I do get up very early though, around 5.30 ish, and tackle it all then.

    I have a quick tidy round in the morning before work. Unfortunately, my mum always told me to have clean underwear incase you were involved in an accident and that sort of stretched to tidy your house incase you never return.
    Before I go on holiday I have a mad clean and bleach everywhere incase we never come back - 'you don't want people thinking you're dirty' [ mum's little voice in my head]. I know that it wouldn't matter and that I wouldn't be there to suffer 'the shame', but I still do it.

    Ohhh...my first 100 posts!! Deserves a treat tonight I think.[​IMG]
     
  9. I always tidy up before I go to bed and clean up the kitchen. I find it profoundly depressing to start a new day in a load of mess and clutter. I always clear and tidy my office before I leave for the weekend too.

    I don't usually but our house is on the market and we keep having to tidy up for viewings. I am discovering that it doesn't take long and it is nicer than living in a pit. Perhaps I might keep this up.....

    I do too. I really hate it. It's wrong. A new day should be clean and sparkly, not filled with yesterday's to do list. Mind you in saying all that, if i lived alone I'd be pretty much on top of things . . . .. . but Mr K don't share this particular list of priorities.

    That's what I thought! Never managed it though.[​IMG]

    Snap. But in our case it's me, who, until the latest quiet, threatening words of doom, has done the house prep for viewings. This is all going to change of course . . . . yeah, right!
    Perhaps when my e-cig fails to deliver the goods I will become 'angry woman', and kick as$.
