It makes me CRAZZZZY!!!! I HATE having a messy kitchen. I can abide by untidiness in other areas but the kitchen just needs to be clean. Especially since we renovated! I can't enjoy the renovation if it's a mess!
It is the one thing that will send me over the top!.
I try so hard to keep it all under control.
Some days it just creeps up, and if I am running late well that is when it happens.
I feel like I spend a lot more time in the kitchen, than any other room.
This is a reminder, that maybe I can work better and more effective in the area.
I keep asking myself 'where' am I going wrong....I think the minute we use something we must put it back.
When just a few plates are there, wash them and put away.
That might be where we all 'mess up''?
OMG! Even that photo is driving me nuts!! I have just sat down in front of Answer Angels with a cup of tea after washing up and cleaning the sink etc, so this photo is not nice. . . I mean . . even the rubbish is in the sink and not the bin. Euww.
Sorry, my dear, but I have seen it. My neighbour; a friend (sadly); some on HIS side of the family and also a casual accquantance . . . . . I will not even have a cup of tea at these houses . . . . and I have two mud puppies! My ex S-I-L was chronic - dishes from one end of the sink to the other.
Oh! Rice, I wouldn't have a cuppa, or meal at the p/i/l's house, purely because of the way she cooked food. It was just foul, & had no nutritional value at all! No wonder my hubby used to eat bread & jam!
She kept house tidy, but used to 'show off' ironed shirts hanging in hallway, whenever I was there.
She didn't have a CLUE about cooking, & yet, the twice they ate at our house, in 25 years, 'turned up her nose' at my superbly prepared meals!
Hence, I stopped talking to her the last 15 years' of her life.
I'd had ENOUGH of her!
It would drive me mad, if it looked like the above photo, but I don't let it get to that stage! I wash up every night, if I haven't been out during the day. If I have been out, I'll tidy up the sink, & wash up in the morning! I also cook dinner on a 2 plate hot top, (1 of those hot plates doesn't work anymore either!) as our oven & stovetop don't work, but I use the microwave every evening, as well as for the afternoon cups of teas!
