Yeah, I could do with some I'll gotten gains too (cf building work)!

Still, at least I have clean light fittings to admire wink

i find listening and singing along to loud (though not too loud to disturb neighbours etc) music helps cleaning and boring tasks go by quicker. especially more uptempo songs

Did you notice me ignoring your lovely cleaners and building work through jealous gritted teeth ;) ?

You are right about the starting something and not finishing . My teachers were right , I am easily distracted .

I have wrapped some presents and am now depressed and need to rob a bank sad

Back to work tomorrow till Sunday , so mostly the bare minimum will get done .

I think the worst thing is starting a few things and only half doing them - somehow that feels worse, like you really are climbing a never ending hill

Anyway, I have found the solution.
As we speak, I have 2 cleaners doing a complete top to bottom clean grin

It is post building work, but
- they are doing things I would never dream of (cleaning Walls!)
- it forced me to tidy up
(let's not mention the carrier bags I filled with junk that I now have to sort through!)

Yes please Slattern (have changed name back to previous) I couldn't even be arsed to think of a new one wink

I have got to mop my floors , and make a start on my wrapping as well .

Any kicking required today? I am available if required smile

grin I've had this name since time began, sorry! Or at least the last 5 years or so anyway wink

Hope you managed to get some stuff done today.

TequilaMockingMagpie Mon 03-Dec-12 14:15:18

Thank you for the kick , will return the favour later .

It really is sodding boring isn't it ? I have sort of half done a few things and the house is still a tip .
Useless !

I have ordered Christmas presents though so that's something I suppose .

I'm at work now so you cant kick me back until I get home - feel free to do so then. The list is endless.

TequilaMockingMagpie Mon 03-Dec-12 13:31:26

Ooops how rude of me

Kick to you too startail .

TequilaMockingMagpie Mon 03-Dec-12 13:28:41

Well those two are now done , I am going to have lunch and then I am

Going to hang the washing up
Clean the bathroom sad

Think of a new name , or will probably just go back to my old one as too lazy to think of a new one .

Startail Mon 03-Dec-12 12:03:15

other, my kindle keyboard is too lazy to register letters.

I guess I'd better not kick it.

Startail Mon 03-Dec-12 12:01:45

kick and please kick me too.

School blouses are not going to transport themselves into the machine.

Nor will the 101 of jobs do themselves.

I have stuff to do but I am procrastinating while the baby eats raisins

I wrote a list out, but I'm buggerred if I can find it.

TequilaMockingMagpie Mon 03-Dec-12 11:57:54

So you are the bugger with the name I actually wanted ! I have even be too lazy to find another name .

An hour ? A whole hour at a time ?

I have done twenty mins,and that was boring .

Right I am off , and if you could all think of a new name for me too that would be handy ;)

Brycie Mon 03-Dec-12 11:54:11

Work for an hour. Stop for ten and tick off list! Make one room nice first. Do easy jobs first to feel sense of achievement. Wear apron with big pocket on front to pick up random crap that should be in a different room. I am doing the same. It's so very boring.

TequilaMockinBird Mon 03-Dec-12 11:52:29


No advice but had to post as I saw your name is very similar to mine wink

TequilaMockingMagpie Mon 03-Dec-12 11:51:04

Only me that needs a kick ?

Well bugger me backwards , I will have to actually be a grown up and stop procrastinating and do stuff .

Swines !

TequilaMockingMagpie Mon 03-Dec-12 11:20:09

I need to get off my arse and achieve stuff today .

I have had a long week and am feeling knackered , but my house is a tip and unless it is sorted out I won't relax .

So I am going to write a list on here and invite you all to come and kick me whenever you fancy . And if you want to do your own list then please do .

First off is the huge pile of washing up
Then I need to tidy the front room , it really is looking a bit grim .

There is a lot more but it will put me off so I am only posting two things at a time .
