DH has just left to take the DCs out for a few hours so I can get on with turning what currently looks like a tornado has been through, into a place ready to host Christmas for 11. My "to do" list is crazy ... Finish cleaning the oven (I put the oven pride stuff in last night); put away 2 baskets clean laundry; stick another load in; change beds; dust & Hoover upstairs and down; mop downstairs (laminate flooring throughout); clean downstairs loo & bathroom; clear all the general clutter; tidy spare room. Eeek.... Better get on with it I guess. We will be out most of the day tomorrow too so it needs to get done today..... Anyone else having a manic day......?

I need to have a manic day as I don't want to be rushing around tomorrow. My to do list looks like this:
Change our bed
Clean bathroom
Washload in and dried
Declutter and tidy living room, kitchen and conservatory.
Get dc to tidy their room.
Dust and hoover throughout.
MW appointment
Make rocky road cookies with dd
Take dc to see Christmas lights

At least by the end of the day most things will be done .... if I get motivated and make a start fblush

Just checking in - hoping it might keep me more motivated if I keep coming back to say what I've done! - beds are all stripped & dc's beds remade; wash load in; clean laundry sorted into piles to be put away; bathrooms/downstairs loo sprayed with cleaner so it can work its magic whilst I dust & Hoover upstairs (which is my next job) .... Back to it!

I managed to clean the carpets, mop the mappable floors and put away a ton of clean washing this morning.
