I have just found the need to remove the lids from the tubs of butter and margarine etc in the fridge and soak them in warm soapy water. Someone help me put an end to this maddness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hee hee! Bless you. If you run out of things to do at home, feel free to come round to Casa Edam -there's plenty here to keep you busy

Today i am too exhausted to even think about nesting - house looks like a bomb has hit it!!! Except for a few key areas that are VERY clean!!

btw - a friend of mine found it necessary to clean out her plug sockets with cotton buds!!!

Lol !

Well, I had this really strong urge to clean the yukky portaloo I was using at a music festival last Saturday. I'm very glad I managed to control myself. I wish the same urge would kick in at home.

Have desperate need to spray starch and iron ALL clothing in my house, including my poor sons (4 and 2) clothes! - all our clothes look like cardboard cutouts hanging in the wardrobe!

Its a sign that it will happening soon i was scrubing the floor 2 days before i went into labour and then the day before as well because i had this big facination about the bubbles and the smell of citrus as well! (it was like a craving for the smell i suppose!)

Good Luck with labour and do all the cleaning you can now coz you'll soon loose the energy and urges to clean once LO arrives!
