Its a beautiful sunny day.

I'm in complete "clear out" zone - did my 13yo's bedroom yesterday and I know I have the huge job to the 10yo and 7yo's room still to do.

I love laundry.

I want to strip beds and wash them and hang them out and clear out 7yo's knickers drawer...

BUT THEY ARE ALL STILL IN BED. I can't even do my own bed as DH is still in it...!! I have 1 washing load on the line, another will be out in 20 mins.....

I want to go around with a big gong, crashing it screaming GET UP....

(Mind you, if they were up I'd also want them out of the house because they would be in my way)...

Your DH clearly needs to take them out for the day!

Or you could come visit me 😀


Onhold · 14/07/2017 08:22

Leave them alone it's not even half 8 yet.


Brakebackcyclebot · 14/07/2017 08:23

Are you serious? You WANT to do all that? I can't decide if your post is a joke or not....

But if you're serious, yes yabu. Leave them alone! And then come to my house, you're more than welcome to do all that here.


HannahMontannaBeachTowel · 14/07/2017 08:23

Come do mine?

Oh god, maybe it is a "beautiful sunny day" but some people prefer their cosy bed.


BathshebaKnickerStickers · 14/07/2017 08:25

Oh my house is normally a complete tip - I just get in "the zone" sometimes and have the energy and the mind set for chucking out things...!

Definitely not a joke...I really do adore doing laundry - so satisfying...!!

I think I heard one of them moving around upstairs....

My poor 10yo has a uti and isn't feeling great - she is so inconsiderate...she won't want to go with Daddy to the beach all morning, and might want to even stay in bed....!!!

I want to go back to bed just reading this Confused


BathshebaKnickerStickers · 14/07/2017 08:55

Right - DH went to the loo so I've stripped our bed....I hope he wasn't planning on coming back to it - so my next load is on now....

I've reported this as obviously fake WinkGrin


Notsosureanymoors · 14/07/2017 09:21

You are definitely not in the UK op! I also agree with you with laundry though i love doing the washing!


MintyVixxxx · 14/07/2017 09:22

I'm with you OP! I LOVE doing the washing! ConfusedConfusedConfused I get pleasure from seeing it all on the same washing line. I really do wonder about myself sometimes!


LorLorr2 · 14/07/2017 09:28

You could pop all the duvet covers off and wash them I suppose, if they're sleepy they won't be too bothered ;)


BathshebaKnickerStickers · 14/07/2017 09:30

Now, fantastic =- the 2 wee ones are up so I can go and start on 7yo's knickers drawers....

The clothes will be reasonable, its the toys that will kill me...

Still 33 mins on this load until I can put the next one on...

Where are you that is so gorgeous?Envy
But if 10yo has a UTI, she's probably feeling rubbish and tired, poor thing- hope she's better soon Flowers for her.


CharlieB161 · 14/07/2017 09:36

You can come and clean my house!!!! :) I wish I had your passion for this!!!!!


ThroughThickAndThin01 · 14/07/2017 09:39

My answer depends on whether you are a sahm or not.

Yanbu if you work and are using your holiday time to do what you will i your house.

YABU, very, if you are a sahm and have all term time to sort out knicker drawers


Wilhelminaaa · 14/07/2017 09:43

You call your DD inconsiderate because she has a UTI and so may not want to go out today?

Totally fake.


FlandersRocks · 14/07/2017 09:44

Right - DH went to the loo so I've stripped our bed....I hope he wasn't planning on coming back to it

I'm chuckling at the thought of the poor bloke enjoying his lie in, nipping for a quick wee and coming back to find the bed has been stripped Grin


ComeLuckyApril · 14/07/2017 09:50

Are you actually my mum?


DataColour · 14/07/2017 09:52

Don't the kids have school today and what about going to work?


Fink · 14/07/2017 09:55

If that were my ex-h, he'd have got right back into the bed and wrapped himself up in the uncovered duvet on the sheetless mattress. Probably naked.


SandyDenny · 14/07/2017 09:57

Why is it wrong to enjoy washing and tidying?

I don't understand the menatlity of a lot of posters on MN who love to disparage anyone who likes ironing or washing or housework. Why are you bothered if the op wants to do some washing - it's very odd and she's obviously joking about being inconsiderate, do you seriously think she finds her dds illness inconsiderate

Loads of schools have broken up already, in fact I believe the whole of Scotland has been on holiday for weeks already

Sheesh, enjoy your day op.


Fink · 14/07/2017 09:58

Don't the kids have school today
Probably in Scotland, they've been off school for ages already, and have their own weather system. Grin


GoingSlightlyCrazy09 · 14/07/2017 10:16

I used to get mine up by hoovering the landing and into their rooms at 9am. Stopped them getting overly cranky from too much sleep Grin, not that they appreciated my efforts!!

Could be Dublin, could be my life, except my DC are teenagers
