10minute stints.
First job hoover and dust upstairs.

Ok - I cleaned kitchen/hall floor just before. Now will tidy up toys in lounge (MN is far more tempting...)

Meet back here in ten grin

i have been doing ten minutes blitz's all day but have come to the conclusion its going to take more than that! <nothing was done last week with>

my carpet looks like its growing things. ick!

main job(s) for today; vax carpet, wash up, sort out ironing, clean yard.

if i have time; tidy our bedroom.

with? with what? running backwards and fowards with dd all week

shinyshoes Mon 08-Sep-08 14:33:54

8 mins and done.

This is cool, I've seen these threads before, I've never taken part.

I prefer these 10 min blitz's , they are much easier to cope with

I have blitzed the boys's room and have 2 bin liners to hide in the recycle bin! blush they will never know! and a big box of stuff for the PTA at school to hide in the car!

I have hoovered, cleaned the kitchen floor, done 2 lots of washing and wiped down the surfaces in the kitchen

DS1 has swimming at 4pm, part done dinner and watched Doctors!

what a productive day!!

Ooh yes please! Although, have you all finished just as I'm starting, or does it just keep on running???

Oh well, I'm off to wash the floors downstairs, however it worksgrin

thesockmonsterofdoom Mon 08-Sep-08 14:40:54

Ok that took a bit longer than ten minutes, but upstairs and attic hoovered and my room tidied. next jobs are dust upstairs and put away clean clothes, will make a cuppa now and it should be about good to drink when I have done that. grin I don't know why but I find it a lot easier to do housework this way, kind of like a race.

shinyshoes Mon 08-Sep-08 14:43:35

I agree sockmonster, I feel it's like a race too. grin

Off to spend my next ten mins ironing 4 pairs of school trousers.

Back in ten grin

sherby Mon 08-Sep-08 14:44:34

off to do my bedroom, back in ten smile

jollydo Mon 08-Sep-08 14:46:44

Ds2 will be waking up any time now and then my tidying may be slowed considerably, but until then... tidy conservatory and sweep floor.

thesockmonsterofdoom Mon 08-Sep-08 14:53:14

sherby Mon 08-Sep-08 14:55:37

Katiekins83 Mon 08-Sep-08 14:55:43

shinyshoes Mon 08-Sep-08 15:02:48

it's for those that can't sew, I have to use this meshy like stuff to take up the trousers, it's an iron on alternative to taking up trousers
