We're putting the decorations up this weekend and between now and the 23rd (when we leave for holiday) I'm so busy! This is my only day to have a really good tidy of the house. I've got until 1.15 to do as much as I can and I'm looking around the house wondering where to start. I've got a 3yr old and a Velcro 8 month old too.
I need to at a minimum,
Unload and reload the dishwasher Do 2/3 loads of washing/drying/putting away laundry Sort pressies into family piles to ship out to various siblings Go around and move all the clutter from the sides and either bin or return to its home Put dinner on for this evening (goodness knows what! Probably pasta) Hoover down and upstairs. Clean around both the bathrooms, Take all rubbish to the tip (because my outside bins are full)
Argh Velcro baby is extra sticky today, no naps for her so far. The 1 time I was able to put her down without her yelling l, I sat down on the floor to sort the washing basket and she rolled straight over to me with a look on her face as if to say, silly mother! You've forgotten to take me with you, don't worry I'm here to help now!
I've done the dishwasher, 2 loads of washing and called the HA to come and unblock my outside drain because it STINKS!
