    This week has been the major start of my nesting.

    I have always been a fairly clean, messy but clean person well this week I've gone mad. I was even scrubbing the OUTSIDE! of my house including my wheelie bin and my UPVC front door!

    I have started to compile a list of stuff to do tomorrow.


    Dishwasher after breakfast.
    Hoover and dust whole house
    Change bed
    Clean bath ect.
    clean windows


    Anyone got any more ideas.

    Its crazy the things that used to just sit and be fine just the way they were are now REALLY GETTING to me.

    I have 2 dogs and they walk across the kitchen floor with their muddy paws usualy I could leave it and only clean it once/twice a week now its EVERY day AT LEAST once.

    I am so impressed by you all! I wish I could achieve even half of what you are doing! I have the urge to clean everything and get everything tidy and ready, but then I seem to get quite dizzy/lightheaded, and my back/hips hurt after doing just a few mins - makes me quite cross with myself.
    I was going to suggest to you about brushing/cleaning floors (after your original list) - but sounds like everything has been covered already! -
    Amazed to hear about all the door-cleaning & outside-cleaning - this is a great idea (lets hope I have more energy/mobility during my last 5 weeks....). I would feel really good if I knew they were all clean and I'd 'achieved something' too.

    I went nuts today lol i cleaned the kitchen down to the tinyest detail ( used cotton buds to clean around draining board etc lol) cleaned the fridge inside and out. Unpacked all the new baby bottles, dummies, and steriliser and washed them all in hot soapy water, and rinsed them so they are ready to sterilise and use now. Washed all the cupboard fronts, on hands and knees cleaned floor, amd rearanged and cleaned the insides of the cupboards........i was knackered after pmsl but felt very satisfied :) xx

    P.S. even before i was pregnant, my friends would call me monica (friends) coz i am obsessive with my home, so imagine the degree of cleaning going on now lol xx
