Is there anyone out there who feels compelled to do the housework etc. when it's really hot outside!!!

Only asking 'cos my house is a tip today and am so hot can only bring myself to do the bare minimum - i.e. cook dinner and hang a couple of lots of washing on the line!!

I feel really guilty but just can't be bothered 'cos of the heat. Am I the only one?????

not at all.... this place looks like a bomb has hit it, but i have made dh promise not to shout at me when he gets home!

We are BOTH going to blitz it tonight when jess is in bed.

I have a huge pile or ironing to do and I'm going on a hen weekend this Fri so need to do it before then as DD and DS will have nothing to wear. (Husband does not know how to find iron!!!!!)

And it's too hot!!!!!!!!!!

wear a thong and an apron in hot weather.
But I can't be bothered no matter what the weather.

I will not do anything tonight when I get home although DP has been at home all day and has done nothing not even washed his dishes.

I kind of have to forgive him as he has been out to buy ans airconditioning unit for the bedroom so i can sleep tonight.

Would love to leave it potty1 but the pile is so mountainous I will have nothing to take on my hen weekend at this rate!!!

I was ironing last night. Phew it was hot! - not angry but hot hot hot!!!

Perhaps my ironing will create sauna-effect in my bedroom and with any luck will sweat off a pound or two!!!!!

He house is in chaos too but i don't feel remotely guilty..dp will be cross when he gets home, but at least he gets to work in an air conditioned room!

I cant be arsed to do anything but have to other wise nothing will get done until November. We are in the mid 40s during the day now, late 20s early 30s at night.. so even loading the dishwasher or hanging the washing out breaks me out in a sweat. I really need to get my front room done tonight though as god knows what ds will be picking of the floor to put in his mouth.....

Suppose better go and get started.......

Where are you luckylady?

can't face it either but the flies are too accusing.

luckily, dh is on paternity leave + he is thin (unlike me ATM) so I make him do bits and pieces. while i feed baby and post on mn.

I just can't get motivated to do housework. I'm trying to relax about it because I know that it's so much easier to do if you wait til the motivation grabs you.

I have one thing to say. Naked Housework.

DH has just retorted with 'you lazy mares, all you have to do is stay at home and look after the baby, and you couldn't even be bothered to do the washing up. Disgraceful.'

This is as it's my day off again and as it was far too hot to move I didn't hoover, wash up or even move last night's dinner stuff from where we left it
