I am obviously completely incompetant as a good home maker as I refuse to make the beds (they only get unmade again during afternoon naps and night times).
Apart from that I have cooked,
washed up (breakfast, lunch and cooking dishes).
hoovered the playroom twice, put the toys away once (the toys are all out again as the girls are playing with them now).
bathed the girls, changed and washed nappies.
Put clothes in machine, hung out washed clothes on line.

things like mopping floors and cleaning cookers get done once a week or immediately if necessary.

I am now looking in despair at my garden which is covered in abandonded toys and food as dd ahs some friends to play!

have done washing up and tidied kitchen (I so miss my dishwasher)
dettoled cat litter tray
washed kitchen floor
hoovered bedroom and hall (we only have one bedroom long story)
will hoover living room after DD has had dinner throws half of it on the floor

and that is about it very lazy day today, I was a very tidy person but have had to let it go a bit as as soon as I tidy DD pulls everything out again shes only 1) and we have storage issues in this flat so it never looks tidy anyway

I am very untidy. Today I made some bread rolls for lunch (DH tidied up the mess) and then I decided to make a loaf of Pumpernickel bread with caraway seeds as I wanted to try out a new recipe. DH tidied up and loaded the dishwasher. I cooked dinner and DH is tidying up after me again! He can't wait for my "in a minute..."!
