I was never into any kind of routine before. It used to make me bored and uninterested. Starting with my work – I used to like changing my shifts from morning to evening and the other way around and finishing with my house – loved swapping furniture around, changing colour themes, etc. I thought I will never be a good housewife – cleaning and cooking was never my thing, I much preferred to go to work rather than stay home and do all house chores. My priorities have changed since I found myself settled with my current family and especially after I had Daniella and Harry, my two lovely children. (I had my first one, Luka, when I was quite young and far not settled yet).
I made some pictures of my morning cleaning routine – before and after. I normally start at around 9am (time could vary now, especially after our baby Harry was born) and it takes me about 2 hours to clean up (again, I might have to feed Harry in between now, so my cleaning time would also extend).
Another side of the kitchen and it’s mess.
Nice and tidy now.
Sink area is always the messiest one. Picture before cleaning (sometimes looks much worse).

I really could not ignore this. It is my best friend, my family member, my precious lovely dishwasher. In my honest opinion, dishwasher is the best invention ever! I love how shiny dishes come after washing and how much time it saves me! I love you, my wonderful dishwasher!
After I am done with the kitchen, living room will be next. It is normally full of Daniella’s toys and other clutter.
Our living room after cleaning.
I recently threw our green rug away that was in our living room. It was really worn, so I decided to finally get rid of it. I just need to get another one as soon as possible, as it does add a lot of cosiness to our living room. Hopefully will do that on the weekend.
Time for the bathroom.
I even like to wash the soap and other bottles when cleaning the bathroom, so all looking like new.
Daniella’s room will normally be the next to clean. It’s pretty much pointless though, as while I clean one side of the room, Daniella is already messing up another. Luka has to clean her side of the room herself.
I then put dirty clothes into the washing machine for washing and fold dried laundry.
And this is pretty much it about cleaning my home. This is what I do every single day with no exception. But I have to admit it, I did really learn to love it!
