Soooo, are you down to your last layer of skin after all the hand sanitising? How’s the isolation going for you?

Although practicing social distancing measures for a little while now, the work from home isolation period has only just started for me (lucky enough to even be working I say).  As I peer over my laptop and gaze into the kitchen area, my thoughts totally leave the spreadsheet that should have been completed an hour before.  We can all relate to some lack of concentration given the circumstances at the moment though, right? I’m noticing that in all the juggle of family v work life (I know you get it), there has been a downfall with strict attention to detail in the cleaning department.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like last week’s breakfast cereal is stuck to the bench top or anything, but 'Spray n Wipe' on the run is just not going to cut it anymore in this current Corona climate.

Knowing how much we all have to play our part in getting on top of this dreadful global virus - a case of the guilt’s sets in about the lack of attention to detail with those other household items.  You know the ones - they're in the background and always left out while you cater to the needs of the demanding ones - like the dishwasher, washing machine, bathrooms and floors.  I’m talking cupboard doors and handles, light switches, fridge handles, remote controls and the list goes on.  'Tomorrow' I tell myself, and back to that spreadsheet I go.

Tomorrow is now today *sigh*.  I know we’ve all got a bit of extra time at home at the moment, and we’ve got to find ways to entertain ourselves. However, spending almost an entire day disinfecting your house is not really on the ‘I'm so looking forward to this’ list though – agreed?!  Anyway, it must be done. Quick scroll through my news feed first though and see this……

…A 4+ day life span, it's a telling reminder that I have to stop procrastinating.  Five hours later and the calming fragrance coming from the diffuser has been overtaken by the strong smell of copious amount of cleaning products, and I'm reaching for the Panadol.  My old stainless steel kitchen sink has been scrubbed so much with Gumption there’s now scratches all over it.

Ok ok, so the latter may have been intentional…… We've got some beautiful new kitchen sinks that have just gone up on the website. The temptation to ensure the old sink looks even more worse for wear couldn't be resisted. The Abey Piazza colour range is amazing – in fact I’m tempted to do a whole kitchen reno just to accommodate a new sink colour!

See what having extra time around the house does.  I've gone from Coronavirus prevention cleaning, to a new kitchen. Off to tell my husband the good news about our next project – ‘Project Isolation Reno’!

Take care everyone, stay healthy and let’s all look forward to some social NON-distancing on the other side of this.
