I have been trying to see our house privately for a little while now. It is somewhat of a burden because the house needs to be as spotless as I can make it each weekend. That is cleaner than I might have done had it not been an open home. It takes heaps of effort now that winter is nearly here. The leaves and things come inside on feet and with the wind when the door opens. The lawns now need mowing weekly and the leaf blower needs to be used weekly too. Of course now we have the fire on the dusting is more intense and the vacuum cleaning is needing attention daily (well it needed that anyway but did not always get it).
I am still cooking outside althought in the dark it is getting quite hard. I might just have to take up this challenge and use my crockpot everyday.
The only part of the house that needs more attention than the rest is my computer space. My gosh it gets out of control so easily and I have trouble prioritising it to remain contained as an organised space.
