lol - can't really get the shoe rack doing DS2's pick-up/drop off - it's next door (literally)

Good luck!

I will encourage you - today I have:

cleaned the bathrooms
cleaned the kitchen
dusted living room and bedrooms
mopped the kitchen and bathroom floors
changed beds
changed towels

and am now marking before I go into work this afternoon.

So it CAN be done - just grit your teeth and power on through!

Of course, I haven't had any breakfast or a shower yet!

ok haven't got much more done yet - just picked DS2 up from school and put DS3 down for a nap (hopefully - he's just been crying - and is now chattering....)

Not going to do any more washing today, it was only the bedding I was going to do - and I think I'll get my mountain of clothes sorted before I tackle that.

About to make DS2 lunch then crack on.
