How does this work...not sure what this thread is about...can someone explain...

wastingmyeducation Sat 30-May-09 12:51:01

Hello mulranno!

You write a list of what you want to do in a day, include things you've already done and things like getting up and drinking tea and then mark off when you've done it.
It's motivating, and noone expects you to get everything done.

CherryChoc Sat 30-May-09 13:14:04

Hello! Short new thread feels less daunting, I promise I will try to stick with it this time.

Am feeling very motivated today. DS slept for over an hour this morning and I cleaned the whole kitchen, and then somebody mentioned car boot sales on another thread and I decided to sort out the 1.5 binbags full of clothes which have been classified as outgrown or surplus to requirements (we got passed on lots of stuff)

So my list:
Clean the kitchen done
Sort out clothes doing

shock I have just realised what time it is, I must eat something...

PlumBumMum Sat 30-May-09 13:39:29

It must be the sun but I'm feeling very motivated, I'm going to stick some sausages in the oven for lunch and iron what needs ironing out of the clean washing and get it all put away
Took washing off line and its all away and just put ds fresh covers straight on

Yes Cherrychoc I read your other thread so sit down with something to eat NOW!

How do you do multiple loads of washing in a day, do you have to have a tumble dryer? Am VERY behind on washing, but can only do half a load at a time as our decent airer broke, and I don't own enough pegs to put a whole load outside. <keeps meaning to buy some>

Cleaned kitchen Done
Had lunch Done
DS Nap JustFallenAsleep (A bit late but never mind, he can go to bed after BGT instead)
Sort through clothes for car boot DoneSomeOf Just coming back to this now.

Then will have to:
Tidy living room
Clean up mess from lunch (will probably do this before/while cooking dinner)

cikecaka Sat 30-May-09 17:23:14

I got fed up with the washing this week, dread to think how many more washes I have to do, so I just bought a piece of rope and stretched across the garden. Not as high as it should be but I bought extra pegs and it is a relief to get so much dried. Now I just have to get round to putting them away. There is piles of clothes on any available space blush.

My name is CIKECAKA and I am a true slattern
