I feel like I've not stopped today!

- tidy beds done
- dust bedrooms done
- Hoover bedrooms, stairs and landing done

I got drenched when I was shopping so I've had a shower and am now in my pjs which is how I intend to spend the rest of the day.

All I have left to do is dry my hair, tidy the baby's toys away when she goes to bed and fold and put away the washing when it's dry.

Takeaway for tea tonight for me, the kids and my sister (dh is going out) so I can relax now.

We have visitors tomorrow so we've vacuumed, tidied, done the bins (big deal as we missed recycling two weeks ago and we still have black sacks not a wheelie bin...) Now we're watching James Bond with a candle lit to make the place smell nice. Xmas decorations down on Saturday....

Good morning and Happy New Year. I don't have much to do today as I did most housework yesterday. All I need to do is:

- tidy beds
- wash breakfast dishes and wipe down worktops
- make lunch and clear up afterwards
- fold and put away clothes that are in the dryer
- tidy baby's toys when she goes to bed

I think that's it really. Nice lazy day here. I might strip and remake Ds' bed to get a head start for tomorrow as he is at his dad's tonight.

Happy new year all

Happy New Year everyone!
Glad to find new thread!

I have taken down all the Christmas decs and swept and cleaned the living room and lit the wood burner as living room was freezing this morning!
Tidied our bedroom.
Tidied up the kitchen and cleaned out the fridge.
Sorted the recycling.
Brought in more logs.

*To Do
Laundry
Menu planning
Get Ds to do thank you letters.
Wash ds's bedding and dust his room.*

But quite frankly too knackered to do much more than watch Dr No right now!!
