The last two days have been mostly laundry. It turns out that if you have a mini washing machine (which I do, and I love) and haven’t done laundry for three months it will take you a LONG-ASS TIME to get caught up. Especially if the weather has just decided to become Autumn and therefore everything is taking f o r e v e r to dry.
I did also clear out all of the trash from my hallway, which I forgot to take a ‘before’ pic for, but suffice to say, it was only traversable by hopping between tiny islands of clear floor. There’s still a ton of crap hanging out in there, but it’s nothing that 5 minutes tomorrow won’t fix.Tags: cleaning, laundry, ufyh
After 5 mins:cleaning, mental health, ufyh
So right now the state of my flat can only be described as “Bad”. Like, so bad that none of the before & afters on ufyh Tumblr even come close. This is what three months of depression, anxiety and ASD without outside help ends up looking like. Mum is coming on Saturday to do the kitchen so I am going to do what ufyh recommends when you have physical and mental health limitations and set a timer for 5 minutes every time I finish a nin-cleaning thing. Watched an episode of leverage? 5 mins. Finished a 300-stitch round of shawl knitting? 5 mins! I plan to take more photos after each one so that I can see the progress.cleaning, mental health, ufyh
Saw a picture on facebook – it looks incredible! You guys are so lucky 😀 is it your permenant training space? x
Hopefully! There are some problems with the floor (unpolished concrete patches + falling roller girls = skin removal) but the people who own the warehouse have some ideas for how to fix it, so then we are moving in (I plan to leave only to sleep 😉
This picture gives you a better idea of how FREAKING HUGE this place is. Well excited 😀Tags: cleaning, italkderby, reply, roller derby, sport, warehouse
Some of the Rockers took up brooms, mops and scrubbing brushes this evening to clean the floor of our new warehouse – a warehouse that is the size of a mid-sized aircraft hangar. Less than a quarter of the way through the buffer failed and we had to do the rest scrubbing on our hands and knees!
It took five solid hours to do the whole thing, with only one 20 minute break – for pizza and beer. Lots of hard work, but fun. Hopefully the floor can get sorted properly and be skateable soon 🙂
