Spring is most definitely in the air. At last!
I don’t know anybody who doesn’t love Spring. In fact, it could be my favourite season, despite the best day of the year (my birthday) being in October. Maybe it’s the contrast to the cold, dark days of Winter – we’re all ready for bit of sunshine. Or maybe it’s the sense of renewed energy and vitality – and not only for plants and animals. As the shoots begin to appear, many people begin to think of new projects or fresh starts. Spring is a time for action. A time to start working on those plans that have been shelved during the winter hibernation.
And so it is with this burst of seasonal zest that I begin my first ever blog!
Ironically, though, Spring is the month most associated with cleaning. My blog, on the other hand, is intended as an antidote to the misery of housework. My mission is to help housework blues-sufferers everywhere and liberate them from any angst or anger they feel towards their role within the home.
While I know some will be merrily rolling up their sleeves in preparation for some good old-fashioned domestic labour, I have a feeling that there are one or two, out there, who are a bit more like me. Those who feel that the spring weather is far too enjoyable to be wasted by cleaning the house.
So, if that’s you – hello and welcome, Kindred Soul! I’m so happy that you’re here. And I hope to see you again because I have got some brilliant ideas that I want to share with anyone who will listen. Ideas that can truly change your life. And that’s not just a vague exaggeration. The insights I’ve stumbled across have transformed my life. I have gone from a ranting housework-hating, angry argument-waiting-to-happen zone of fury, to discover a more chilled, zen-like approach to domestic life. I’ve learned that it’s possible to change a few thought-patterns to get, (at the risk of sounding like those awful laundry ads) outstanding results!
So I hope you’ll return, for what may turn out to be a sort of spring clean after all – A Spring Clean for the Mind. Together we can dust off unhelpful mental cobwebs to find your inner shine.
I promise you, though – there won’t be a single rubber glove in sight.
As always, I’d love to hear what you think!
