My grandmother's generation ( and those before her) did a version of this unconsciously. If I remember it was
Monday - wash day
Tuesday - downstairs
Wednesday - upstairs
Thursday - washday
Friday - baking day
She also had a form of mealplan as Monday was always cold meat and veg left over from the Sunday Roast. Wednesday was a roast and Thursday was a repeat of Monday. Friday was either fish and chips or a freshly baked pie.
These routines were never written down but just taken as law. You didn't want to be around her if it was raining on a Monday or Thursday believe me.
Anyway back to the present. Last week I sat down with a notebook and worked out a routine and meal plan for the week.
Sunday will be be my day for shopping and baking
Monday - Living room, hall, front porch
Tuesday - bedrooms, bathroom, stairs and landing
Wednesday - Kitchen, fridge
Thursday - repeat Monday
Friday - repeat tuesday
Saturday - repeat wednesday
As I live in Wales, the land of rain, washing day will be when the weather allows.
It's not going well.
Sunday I decided to completely rearrange the kitchen and emptied all the cupboards. This left no time for baking, which I managed to do yesterday.
Apple, sultana and cinnamon cake
Vanilla Sponge topped with Turkish Delight Icing and choc chips
I didn't get a meal plan written down until yesterday either but here it is.
Monday - Peri Peri chicken and wedges
Tuesday - Gammon and chips
Wednesday - Cottage Pie and veg
Thursday - Chicken, Leek and Tarragon with baked potato
Saturday - Chicken curry and rice
Sunday - Roast Dinner
Well that's the plan anyway, but it never goes that way in this house. I can but try though. Hopefully next week will be a bit more organised. The plan is to do a List post every Monday. Perhaps that will help keep me in check.
