So DD3 is having a party on Friday! I need to have at least the downstairs tidy. My utility room and downstairs loo have to be decluttered.

To Do
Move Christmas Decs out of downstairs shower
DH's Dinner

That will do for starters

Thanks Squirrel, thought I was talking to myself. Love looking at other threads on this but often feel like I am intruding

Squirrelpatrol2174 Thu 01-Mar-18 19:19:28

Yeah there's on the housekeeping section and also one or two fb cleaning list groups.

cikecaka Sun 04-Mar-18 16:41:06

Tomorrow I want to sort my Hotpress (airing cupboard). Can't find anything in it or put anything into. It needs a major cull. Posting for accountability!

Coldhandscoldheart Mon 05-Mar-18 08:50:17

I love accountability threads smile how’s the hot press looking @cikecaka ?
I am using my sleeping baby for not getting going on the huge pile of Stuff that needs decluttering. Am going to photo before and after Ufyh style.

happytobemrsg Mon 05-Mar-18 08:51:53

Can I join you? I find it really hard sticking to chores so I've made a rota. I'd like to have some accountability to ensure I stick to it!

Coldhandscoldheart Mon 05-Mar-18 10:52:56

Well go on then happy, what’s on your list today?

cikecaka Mon 05-Mar-18 12:04:17

Welcome, welcome! It is looking quite empty, have 2 bags of covers and clothes that are too small for DD3 now, after being buried deep in it. Need to leave it now TIL 2pm cause I need to do DHs lunch and wash breakfast dishes

To Do
DH's Dinner

Coldhandscoldheart Mon 05-Mar-18 12:44:26

I have sorted through two carrier bags, which as made nary a dent in the Pile, but must be some sort of progress. Might do another one before I try to get little Miss Sleep-is-for-the-weak to have a nap.

Coldhandscoldheart Mon 05-Mar-18 13:50:51

Four. Admittedly one of them I emptied to find it’s mostly DH’s so I gave neatly piled it for him to deal with smile

That’s a good list. Toddler is at home tomorrow, so anything I get done is a bonus.

Well done @cikecake
I have ma aged next to nothing just one wash
Will do better tomorrow

cikecaka Tue 06-Mar-18 20:12:52

One wash is better than nothing. Have reached a full stop all afternoon.

Coldhandscoldheart Wed 07-Mar-18 09:00:55

Am going to further attack the Pile this morning after I have made a lasagne for tea. Unless we just have bog. Hm. Might be better -fewer pans.
I have noticed that Dh has not mentioned his newly tidied drawers.
I will wait and see if he deserves rage later.

Coldhandscoldheart Wed 07-Mar-18 12:45:29

Okay, well so far that has only consisted of phoning the charity shop to see if they can take empty cd cases. But there’s at least three bags of them, so not bad.
