thought i might like to jump in on your housekeeping thread..esp when i read mission, seems easy (like to have a tidyish house anyways) and tomorrow is bin day!

shouldbedoingthehousework · 01/03/2007 08:48

Dh has taken dd to school, I need to take ds in a minute and then pop into work for half an hour, but then I must ~

~wash-up by hand! dw has given up over night
~call dw repair man
~hoover upstairs
~dust upstairs
~put laundry away done
~clean bathroom
~empty kitchen compost
~washing x1
~water/feed house-plants
~clean cloakroom
~tidy utility room
~mission...will have to wait I think..

Hope to make as much progress upstairs as I did downstairs yesterday but am not feeling as energised today. Bit of a downer again after all yesterdays efforts...

don't usually join in this thread, but I just need to share!! I've done all the usual housekeeping things this morning. DD walking home from school on her own tonight, so I am as free as a bird all day. HOWEVER - I am supposed to be making a birthday card (I sell them) for tomorrow and all I can think about is the fact that the 11+ results come out tomorrow and I can't concentrate!!!! My hands are shaking and this horse in stable cake is going to look decidely UN stable!!

staceym11 · 01/03/2007 09:52

good luck on the 11+ results princesscc! well done on having all your housework done by now!!

All up washed dressed fed

staceym11 · 01/03/2007 09:52

other than saying morning to yaddah that is. (sorry have very little brain this morning)

princesscc · 01/03/2007 09:56

When I say I've done everything, I actually mean I've put the washing machine on and the dishwasher! Don't feel useless

staceym11 · 01/03/2007 10:07

oh ok, just as good as me then i feel better now!

laloop · 01/03/2007 10:09

Hi everyone

Satin, I can sympathise with you today as I am so tired this morningas well. Ds2 decided to have a 3 hour screaming match from 10.30pm onwards last night because he wanted "dowwwnnnstairssss, mama, waahh! wwwaaaaaahhhh!". Up at 5am too...

So this morning I am going to take it easy on the housework front, have loads of cups of tea and MN for a while. Then have to head out to buy a birthday present before school runs.

Hope everyone has a nice day today

staceym11 · 01/03/2007 10:11

oh laloop take it easy, tues night i had ds up at 11.30, 1, 3 and 5 (hes 16 weeks and was hugry) and dd up at 2 and then ready for the day at 7! i was exhausted yesterday!!!

princesscc · 01/03/2007 10:16

OK 10.30 is my cut off! I must make this darn cake! If you see me after that, please feel free to shout at me!

ludaloo · 01/03/2007 10:20

Morning Ladies

Welcome to skirmish

I have already wisked around the house in the vain attempt of making it look presentable to the delivery men (?? Don't ask why it should really matter what it looks like to delivery men!!!!!!??? My name should have been ParanoidAndroid!!!!)

Anyway, my friend has taken the kids to Ti a Fi, and I'm waiting for my tumble dryer. Between 8am and 12.30pm (it had better be before 12.30, as thats when I have to be at DD1's school)

Well will be back in a bit

Have a good day all xx

Morning ALL and HELLO *Newbies.

I love this thread, my home and sanity have improved no end. I realised my mindset had changed when I thought on Wednesday 'Got 45 mins before DH comes home...I'll clean out the oven' and I did!

And I love the people on it. They're all fab and supportive.

BTW I'm feeling a hell of a lot better now. Just taking it slowly and remembering my meds.

OK, sorry for gushing...DONE LIST
Up and washed
DS up and washed
Make DS bed and draw curtains
Draw bedroom curtains
Downstairs Put Fire On
Make pack up for DS lunch
Empty DW
Put away
Make breakfast
Eat it
Start to re load DW
Dress DS
Take to school
Attend PTA meeting
Home, cup of tea and MN time

I'm having to find stuff to do now!

To do
Clean out fridge. (I found that to do)
Maybe clean out cat litter (NOT MY TURN!!!!)
Check laundry drying status
Go and be a 'Reading Friend' at school
Bring DS home
Play.

Better get cracking...TTFN
