We've always had piles of papers lying around the house that accumulate and grow and get put into a tote bag and hidden in a cupboard whenever someone comes round. Bills, receipts and insurance documents get lost in these piles, sometimes for months.
It's a similar story with washing up, although since the dishwasher broke we've been a little better at keeping on top of it.
But now we're having a baby, and, Speaking as a Father, no child of mine will grow up in a messy house. I'm trying to make a regular weekly thing of looking at mail, paying bills and sorting out papers. I'm also on a mission to keep the kitchen clean, which means washing up after breakfast and after dinner and wiping down the cooker and the surfaces. It gets easier the more I do it. My plan is working. I'm de-valuing the washing up!
