Have a brew to fortify yourself, I need to dispatch DS to school, then we'll come up with a strategy smile

cece Mon 15-Apr-13 08:23:54

Me me me.

Got school run, a run and a bit of shopping to do... Then I will have to tackle something!

1) Floors downstairs
2) Put things away.

I think that will take most of the day! LOL

Ok so, we've dropped the bigger one at school, done the chemist and the shop ALDI. love ALDI and cbeebies has been installed to amuse the toddler blush [whatcanyoudo?]

I am going to get a washing basket to fill with crap to go upstairs, and then clean the kitchen.

My house is always a tip, but now it's actually really embarrassing. It's horrendous.

But, I'm too busy enjoying the peace and quiet just now to start cleaning. blush

cece Mon 15-Apr-13 10:41:35

I've half sorted out the bins and put them out the front.

Been for a run.

Unloaded and reloaded dishwasher

Dropped 2 DC at school/nursery

Hung some coats up .

Reloaded the washing machine with another load.

Now having a cup of tea and pondering going for a quiet mooch around the shops or should I do some cleaning?

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 10:45:25

I have DONE the kitchen.

Katy I pretended I was paying myself so I made myself see dirt I usually ignore grin

I cleaned my spice rack, kettle and toaster, and between the knobs on the cooker (wrapped knife handle in microfibre cloth).

So far today I have put a load of washing in in the hope I get it on the line and cleared the breakfast bar of the accumulated crap that comes from having my husband in the house.

I have also just washed the bathroom. I had forgotten our tiles are meant to be shiny blush

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 12:15:14

Living room tidied, dusted and hoovered, EVEN UNDER THE FURNITURE.

<puffs out chest for medal>

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 12:16:14

all the crap is on the dining table

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 12:17:25

Oh, and there was literally a crap on the telly unit after GooGirl had a nappy leakage incident while getting up close and personal with Mr Bloom <sigh>

whiteandyellowiris Mon 15-Apr-13 12:34:21

oh yeah i'm doing this, probably tomorrow now

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 12:50:54

I have SORTED OUT THE CRAP off the dining table and wiped down it and the chairs.

<stands waiting for telegram>

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 12:54:45

Ooh brew and biscuits and flowers! Yay!

I have stripped beds and put washing on.

Downstairs looks quite shiny, still got floors to do. I hate doing the floors even when I do them the lazy person's way [nobuckets]

I need to do an online food shop as well at some point today.

2nd load of laundry just beeped for drying (admittedly this can't slide during the holidays). My knees are crap, at the moment, so vacuuming (also daily, regardless) is DH's job, tonight.

I've tidied the boys' room after sorting out school uniform, and ordering new trousers for DS2, as out of the 3 handmedown pairs I had waiting, one pair is badly pilled, one needs hemming and the smartest pair, which DS1 only wore twice, has a stuck zip. He went to school in the pilled ones, plus a summer jacket 2 sizes too big because I hadn't ordered him a new one yet. So I've ordered him a new one of those, just the one size too big, instead.

And I need to attend to my cutlery drawer. It's been bugging me for the past week, as it's full of crumbs and dust. Off to set the dryer going, wash my lunch things and tip it all out and scrub!

Khaleese Mon 15-Apr-13 13:19:18

I've bleached the bathroom, my eyes now hurt, but god it looks good.

I've tidied and deep cleaned four beds and hall way. ( even done the woodwork)

Cup of tea.

Off to hoover stairs.

Still to do two reception rooms. Utility, kitchen, hall, porch...never going to do it all before 3.30.

TheCeejOfWinterfell Mon 15-Apr-13 13:41:05

I shall start this tomorrow when they finally go back. <cough> Easter holidays, Goo, not half-term <cough> <shoots self for being such a fucking twat>

You are all a bit efficient and scary, though [fearty]

I have a dog in the house for the next two weeks. Surely this means there's no point in hoovering??

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 14:03:29

cleaned the bathroom smile

cleaned GooGirl's room, changed the beds and sorted more washing. She has been peeling off her wallpaper near the window sad

Need to do the stairs and my room. Gah.

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 14:04:29

There's no such thing as half term now is there, five short terms. I don't care. Every holiday is half term unless it's summer holidays or Christmas.

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 14:06:07

Tomorrow I'm at work.

Wednesday I will wrap gifts, clean out fish and try to tap my mum up to borrow her steamer thingy (not for fish).

AppleCrumples Mon 15-Apr-13 14:16:25

Hello can i join?

First thing i did after droping dcs at school was attack the kitchen (oh the squalor) and then the living room followed by bathroom. I feel so much better the mess by the end of the hols is so stressful!

Would have done more but dc4 seems a bit surprised at the sudden lack of people poking her and fighting over her! Now shes fallen asleep on me after a bf so guess thats the cleaning done for now!

Nagoo Mon 15-Apr-13 14:18:34

I am going to go round the house taking photos of all the shit DIY jobs that aren't done so I can't forget about them.

I have cleaned everywhere and still can't find the corner of the laptop that snapped off when the cat knocked it off the sofa sad
