Thank you to reader Kay for sharing her thriving at home tips.
I am a grandmother now and have been married for almost 50 years.
When I was a young mother and literally struggling to cope with babies, husband, housework, shopping etc. My mother told me to be sure to try to do three things that will help to keep a tidy home:
- Make the bed
- Keep the sink free of dishes
- Fold the clothes as you take them off the line.
There was still quite a mess at times but having those three things done seemed to make the other chores less stressful.
My two daughters used this “plan” and I believe they still think it’s a good one, even though other things might be pretty chaos the essentials seemed to be done.
Please share your tips
Through the new series ‘Helping mums thrive at home‘ I will be sharing my stories and tips, but I would love to read and share yours as well, just like Kay’s. I am positive those who are feeling out of control at the moment will find some comfort and help reading how other mums have managed to get through these times, be it that you struggled too or you found one simple tip made a difference or you found a way to manage from the beginning. Your story and tips can make a big difference to another mum. Please email me your story or tips.
