I have stripped all the beds, tidied up all the bedrooms, dusted, hoovered everywhere, cleaned bathroom and toilets, cleaned kitchen, put bedding in washing machine, and now I'm here..... quite proud of myself, normally can't get my a*se in gear to do it....

Now I feel really guilty because my house is a mess and I have not done any housework. I have had my eyebrows waxed, had coffee and cookie in cafe, bought a pressie for a new baby, took ds to park and to feed the ducks and done a bit of shopping in waitrose.

I've stripped beds and redone beds, put washing in, tidied kitchen from last night's family gathering, taken ds1 to a party - just got back.

Now going to do more washing and sort out some old clothes that are piled up in the bedroom.

Dh is going out to buy black card to stick to the ds's windows!! Getting desperate for sleep past 6am!!

Tonight we are having friends over for tea (probably take away) and chat.

Took DS1 to the shops to buy a pressie for a birthday party
Attended birthday party
Took DS2 to the paediatrician
Went to the pharmacy to fill prescription

Went into town, bought sandals for DS1, and went out for a nice meal, as I will be living in Royston Vasey for the next week. (Ozer, which is a Lebanese place. Very nice, quite cheap.)

Failed to pack for week in Royston Vasey.

Made a smoothie for DS1 who is off-colour.

ooo I forgot I've cleaned the floors too..
The kids have had a bit of a fighting day so we have to separate them, DS is playing upstairs atm, DD1 is playing and DD2 is sitting having cuddles with me.....

Got up (always a good place to start)

Went to the gym

DH did the shopping

Met back here at 11.30 ish and have been preparing food for DS 4th birthday party tomorrow.

We are also feeding and watering the adults, so far we have made hummous, chilli bean dip, and baba ganoush.

For the kids we have made, buns, which I am about to ice.
I have done the tuna and sweetcorn mix for the kids sandwiches, when DH is finished with the food processer, I will grate the cheese for tomorrow for the sandwiches, I think we should do the ham at the last minute.

We are then giving them just plain crisps, no hula hoops, no chessy wotsits, no skips, nothing like that.

Fresh fruit and either juice or water.

Minimum amount of processed stuff, will be interesting to see what they are like after it

Oh and no sweets in the party bag,just a book and a small toy and some raisins.

I am so glad you asked as we are feeling rather smug at the moment

However DH is swearing that next year they are going to Mc Donalds

hmmmm - these are things I should have done today

Tidy Study it's a TIP
Sort coats out (got about 12 coats on the pegs downstairs.......4 of which get worn LOL).
Pop into church and sort some of the music out
Put some more stuff onto the business system ready for adding to the website once we've confirme details.

Things I've done today


And DH has gone to the office so I guess I should make some sort of effort to do something LOL

sparklymieow Sat 28-May-05 15:16:49

LGJ I am feeling smug too, Nice knowing I will only have to pick up the toys in the living room tonight and then I can relax.....

Gwenick Sat 28-May-05 15:17:34

having said that - my house is actually pretty tidy at the moment as I've mananged to do at least 1hr of housework a day this last week..........
