to find MN to be a much more appealling proposition than the pile of washing that I 'should' be doing?

Does what it says on the tin. Please provide me with justification for doing this rather than doing that.

did you know that stains come out easier if they are left ignored in favour of MN?

No other form of ignoring works though, only MN.

It's certainly more alluring than the washing up I didn't do last night as we were watching a film...

Alas, I can't provide justification - other than something lame like it's good for the soul to share, and the chores don't really matter...

doesn't REALLY work, does it.

Anyway - what other threads shall I look at now....

absolutely nbu. Tis half term, my kids are currently in sitting room, arguing over the bloody xbox.

Will get myself a coffee and toast in a min, and return to my comfy spot.

Having said that, Have got nappies in wash, and a load in the drier, [smug emoticon]

Put kettle on, stick washing in while it boils and come right back.

Oh, it is also saving me from teaching a 4yr old her alphabet- she is determined to do her 'paperwork'.

I did 3 lots of washing yesterday ffs. There must be more to life than this! Aargh

Oh, I don't 'do' ironing. No, no, no.

shoot, there must be some stuff you have to iron? No?

I try to iron at little as possible but still manage 2 baskets regularly.

Do you think it's the fact that i leave it in the tumble over night?

DH irons his own shirts and I occasionally iron an outfit for a night out. That's it. I don't really use the tumbledrier as it creases terribly- I have a pulley in my kitchen so it dries over night. Only takes one load at a time though. I have become proficient at hanging stuff on the radiatiors sans creases.

I have crinkly children wink

Boo. I wish I had a wee 'slave' (as a male friend of mine used to refer to his cleaner- wrong but funny) to give all the jobs I hate to.
