and before you say anything yes I know it's 5.30 in hte morning, I've been up for 1 1/2hrs and despite saying I'm going to do my housework (particuarly that which should have been done last night so far I've done nothing blush)

So today I must:

Put the recycling bin out so that it gets collected this morning
Empty the dishwasher
Reload it and put it on
Do my washing
Get it dried
Iron (and put away)
Sort kitchen worktops
During the day, take photos of, and jot down details of stuff I need to list on ebay
Tonight - list stuff on ebay
Go to town to get a postal order to pay for DS1's school photos
Address Christening invites (and hopefully post them!)
Tidy lounge/diner - and hoover
Cook dinner
Bath the boys

ermm think that's it for now.......I'm hoping to get a chunk of it done before the boys get up........

well done theirmum - I'm just having a coffee break/long lunch before embarking on the hoover and ironing - trying to decide which to do first though - possibly the ironing as I can always hoover when DS3 wakes up from his nap.....

Woohoo - nearly done having a coffee break and then going to do a quick zoot round in here, shouldn't take long - maybe 10-15 minutes (children depending).

Then I'll get upstairs and take some photos and jot notes for this stuff to go on ebay, then cook dinner, bathing them is just before bed, then after bed I can list stuff (and my housework will be already done bar a bit of tidying up from dinner) grin

And it's only taken 15.5 hours, who says housework takes up too much of your day you've still got 8.5 hours for a good sleep wink (sorry I am a regular lurker!)

chloemegjess Fri 31-Oct-08 10:41:37

Sorry I didn't realise the thread had moved as I was watching it in threads I am on. If it moves again, can somebody please let me know on here so I can still join in?

Today I am desperate to get my house looking better. My back room (which isn't really used but you have to walk through it to get anywhere in the house as it is in the centre and all the doors come off it.) (yes my house has a very stupid layout)is such a bomb site. Seriously, you have to climb over stuff everytime you walk through it! I always put stuff that needs to go upstairs there, often heavy stuff, thinking DH can do it but he is useless and never takes things up with him so it has all gathered up (I usually have DD when I am going up and I am pregnant so trying to avoid heavy lifting.)

Anyway, want to sort that out.
Job list for today:

Hoover floors downstairs
Mop kitchen and bathroom floors
Take everything upstairs that needs to go
Try not to turn upstairs into a mess in the process!
Put one washing load in
Hang up washing
Email Usborne about book order.
Make dinner

Will let you know how I get on!

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 10:44:42

sorry blush - the old thread had disappeared off my active conversations - so I started a new one as I couldn't find it grin

I haven't got too much to do but will join you anyhow

What I need to do

Have a shower and get dressed
Get the boys dressed
Pop to town to pay a bill and get a few bits at Morrisons
Empty the dishwasher
Take photos of more stuff to get listed on ebay
Get the breadmaker on just after lunch
Make dinner (soup)
Feed the boys dinner
Bath them
Hoover
Load of washing
Dry clothes
Iron and Put away

chloemegjess Fri 31-Oct-08 10:48:16

Off to go and put a wash on and make a start on t that awful back room!

FAQ Fri 31-Oct-08 10:49:26
