My list is horrendously long but it isn't all for today, I've just written a list of all the things to do before we move house. Basically it involves sorting every drawer, cupboard, wardrobe, shelf etc in the entire house and (hopefully) several dump runs. So far in the last day and a bit I've done the dresser in the dinning room and all but one kitchen cupboard.

northstar · 11/10/2006 10:42

I have to :
Clean out the cupboard where the toaster goes because it went in upside down yesterday and spilt crumbs everywhere
Put lovely new white valance sheets on beds
Then :
Clean house from top to bottom because my mum has just phoned to say she is coming over to stay and will be arriving in the morning but

Why would you need to do a workout after all that? How many children do you have at home now? What is happening at 2.30? Is the Queen coming?

This is what you need.

I have 3 boxes of stuff for the charity shop and 4 bags for the dump. 10 mins for a cup of tea then onwards. Luckily ds is now down for a nap for a good 2.5-3 hours and dd has a playdate until 6pm so loads of time. I am feeling very virtuous. .

Judy1234 · 11/10/2006 18:08

Genuine question. How can anyone bear their day to be cleaning and washing etc? I have never understood it and I've been a mother for 22 years. I still don't understand it. Not criticising anyone's choices here but why does anyone want to do it?

Now I deserve a night of 'smug-bitch' telly,which is Kim & Aggi, harridan McKeith and brat camp or teen tamer. Mmmmmm... bottle of wine too

WigWamBam · 11/10/2006 19:22

I don't want to do cleaning and washing.

But if I don't do it the house is dirty and there aren't any no clothes to wear. And I can't stand not having clean clothes.

My "to do" list started with packing bloody boxes at my MIL's old house - the ones she couldn't be arsed to pack when she moved three months ago. Tomorrow's "to do" list will start the same way. And so will Friday's. Saturday's starts with picking up the hired transit van to pack the boxes in, and Sunday's starts with driving the effing things to MIL's and dumping them there.

That's me sorted for the next few days then
