#14 Bring on the suds!

You’d think that doing the washing up before going to bed at night would be easy, right?

Like, why on earth am I even talking about it? And, where’s the challenge here?

Well, I’m generally quite a tidy person but I’m intrinsically quite lazy (I blame my Mum!) So, it’s something of a standing joke amongst my friends that I let the washing up build up, sometimes for days at a time…

Goodness! Did I really admit that on here? Eek!

Anyway, my good pal Louise (of 50 sit ups a day fame) chuckled as she set me a second challenge to, and I quote, “wash up every day for one week, leaving nothing to be washed up the following morning, not even a wine glass.” She knew that this would be more difficult for me to achieve than jumping out of a plane!

A false start

Just to prove the point, I actually had a false start a couple of weeks ago, where I managed three days in a row then fell off the wagon. But, this time, I’m delighted to claim victory.

She didn’t say anything about drying up, so I just left it to drip dry then put it away the next morning 🙂
