me too - but in my defence only DS2 has gone to bed (demanded an early night when I wouldn't let him "nap" at 7pm) DS3 and 1 are still up.

I am avoiding the mess that I have made. Toys so much easier to pack away than unpaid bills and dirty dishes <sigh>

I'm usually good but today I just can't get motivated, I feel so tired, I havent even had my dinner yet (jacket potato that's been in the oven since 4.30) maybe if i eat that it will give me energy to tidy up then you can all join me (those who haven't already!) what do you think? 8.15 we'll all spend 15mins whizzing around?

Started to 'sort' playroom, problem is only started so looks liks bombs hit it.

In my defence though spent most of the day glossing the new nursery hmm

ok I now have no excuse - DS2 and 3 now in bed. DS1 sat on the sofa watching Celebrity Masterchef - no reason I can't be picking up the chips, toys, clothes and everything else from the floor and tidying up in general/........

LoveMyGirls Wed 16-Jul-08 20:18:59

ok but can you wait for me FAQ? I'm just eating my dinner then I will be running round like a blue arsed fly so I can sit back down again!

unfitmother Wed 16-Jul-08 20:19:11

ok LMG - sounds like a plan smile - I'll wait for you to eat your dinner - run round like a blue arsed fly with you, and then potter around doing general stuff once we've both finished the blue arsed fly bit grin

DS has festooned the living room carpet with many jigsaws which I will have to separate and then put in their boxes


paolosgirl Wed 16-Jul-08 20:25:04

Now that the kids are on their school holidays, I'm trying to decide whether it's actually worth tidying up every day - or just give in to the inevitable mess and chaos, and deal with it when they go back.

LoveMyGirls Wed 16-Jul-08 20:34:16

Right I'm ready!

Ready steady go...................................................... meet me back here at 8.50!

ok - lounge part of the lounge diner is tidy and hoovered, I've also made a start on the junk dining table and cleared/cleaned the computer desk (which is half way point)
