get my lazy arse off this chair, stop reading MN and playing a pointless computer game and DO something?

DH has taken the DC to MiL's for two days. Yesterday I worked like mad on the spring cleaning but today all I have done is sit here wasting my precious child-free time. For five whole hours. Blush

Sit there then, if that's what you choose to do....same as me Wink


Loonytoonie · 13/04/2011 13:58

Cleaned yesterday. Rest today. Seems reasonable to me Grin. So, YABU.


TheMonster · 13/04/2011 13:59

I'm MumsNetting today to avoid housework. Works for me. I only feel slight guilt.


Katiekatiekatekate · 13/04/2011 13:59

No Waltons, DO something!! Please, I beg you - and I will do the same. Maybe.


ApocalypseCheeseToastie · 13/04/2011 14:00

Katiekatiekatekate · 13/04/2011 14:00

Oh no, it's too late for me... he's waking up and I didn't even finish making a cup of tea.


goodbyemrschips · 13/04/2011 14:00

dh has took ds out for the day.........never get any time to myself always got someone in it.

So I have lost the knowledge to know what to do.

I have got a bit of housework I could do.

I am researching family tree....needs work on it.

I am studying ''the art of handwriting''

I am studying caligraphy.

But I am sat here watching neighbours .....surfing......

and the heating has clicked on so I wont be moving anytime soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!


TrinityIsABunnyMunchingRhino · 13/04/2011 14:00

hmm depends what game you're playing
if its bejeweled blitz or zuma blitz

then you are quite right to be sitting there playing it for hours and hours Grin

sorry, I'm no help, I cant be arsed either


TorcherQueenie · 13/04/2011 14:03

Nah, you don't deserve a flaming you deserve that bloody break though! Grin


YouaretooniceNOT · 13/04/2011 14:14

OMG!! I have sat here for days and done nothing... I was planning to do it today..flame me


amberleaf · 13/04/2011 14:20

Enjoy your break and dont feel guilty, you did housework yesterday you have earned your rest!

maybe put some washing on? or other things that you can do and then leave to it?


Waltons · 13/04/2011 14:20

Hmmm ... That didn't work, did it? Just made another Brew instead.

How about something along the lines of "I expect my 97 year old granny to babysit more often?" Does that help?

If not it might have to be "breast is best" or "all foreigners should be deported" ... or maybe a good teenage mums thread? Grin

saying that what i need to do is switch off the laptop and go and do my own a minute


minipie · 13/04/2011 14:22

Ok then here goes...

Get up woman! Go and do something fun that you can't usually. Go for a long walk at your own pace? Go out for tea with someone? Window shopping? Real shopping? Long bath and paint your nails?

MNing is fine but you'll regret it if you get to the end of the day and that's all you've done, you know you will.

Go on, up you get!


JollySergeantJackrum · 13/04/2011 14:23

Waltons I will get off my arse and do the dishes if you do something too. I should be doing housework rather than MNing so dishes are necessary, while you're having a childfree day so you should be reading a book or having a ridiculously long bath or something...


kreecherlivesupstairs · 13/04/2011 14:29

We've got visitors coming tomorrow so I've been doing 10 minutes housework then 20 on MN.


Waltons · 13/04/2011 15:22

I won the next level of the stupid game. Now I really am going to do something, so come on KatieKatiekatekate and JollySergeantJackrum - time to get moving. Grin

First stop the ironing.
