Hallo, which one of the following form would you preferably use?

"Today I should tidy up a little the flat, I dont think it was so bad at the beginning of the month."

or:

"Today I should tidy the flat a little up, I dont think it was so bad at the beginning of the month."



Thank you!

    Neither, I'm afraid. I would go for

    "I should tidy the flat a little" or "I should tidy the flat up a little"

    The term "a little" is short for "a little bit" as in doing a little bit of tidying.
