The 11 emotions of the big spring clean

It’s not gonna be easy.

IT’S OFFICIALLY STARTING to take up. We all know what that means… the big Spring Clean.

Here’s how it’s gonna go down.

1. Optimism

You bought a load of new cleaning products and cloths and you’ve set aside an afternoon to get stuck in. You GOT THIS.

The more dedicated of you may even have a playlist ready.

2. An overwhelming sense of anxiety

Your wardrobe looks like a charity shop’s donation room, pre-sort. Should have booked the week off.

3. Nostalgia

For the Winter gone by. Taking down the summer clothes is so bittersweet, and locking away the electric blanket is a fool’s errant. You’ll have it down again next week.

Parting is such sweet sorrow.

4. Hopelessness

You open the hot press, and despair falls out.

Oh that… that’s supposed to be in there.

5. Boredom

Time for a little break. Your social media needs a Spring Clean too.

The floors are WET, ok?

6. Nausea

… as a result of using up everything in your freezer to clear it all out.

Mmmmm… tastes like ice.

7. Disgust at your very being

You didn’t want to admit it, but there are still Christmas decorations lying around. Hey, you made it work for Easter, but it’s time to let it go.

To the attic.

8. Guilt

You’ve avoided going to the bottle bank for far too long. Now all of this belongs to you.

9. Distress

You think you’re doing well, then you look outside. The shed ain’t gonna clean itself.

You need a skip. How do you even get a skip?

10. Minor triumph

You’ve only been working 20 minutes and you already have two bags for the clothes bank.

Pat yourself on the back.

11. Abandonment

Listen, you tried.
