Hope it's okay for me to start today's thread I have been up with DS2 since 6 and for once have a chance to contribute to thread:

So far:

  • Hung 2 loads of washing out [beam]
  • New load on
  • DS2 fed and asleep
  • Drank cup of tea in peace and quiet

Hi, I forgot to post a gain when I got back earlier. I've done all the basics, but not much more. I put the ladder away from going in the loft yesterday, and now find I need to go back up.
It will have to wait now, I'm not getting it back out today.

Olivebranch No idea at all what to suggest fro your dd. Mine are 6 and 7, share a room and I have exactly the same problem.
My mum used to just gather upeverything off the floor and put it in a bin bag. What I didn't put away by the end of the day went in the bin, It didn't change my tidiness (or lack of) at all though[hm]

tort I think it will be too far for me, too. I hope you do get to meet up though. I've met some lovely people through mumsnet. It gets less scary the more you do it, too.

Hi Everyone

To do
~ D/W ~ done
~ More Washing x 2 ~ done
~ Vacuum up/downstairs ~ done
~ Clean bathroom & downstairs loo ~ done
~ Make beds & tidy bedrooms ~ done

Except DD I have handed her a carrier bag and asked her to clean her room ... she just gave me one of her lovely smiles! No wonder she never cleans it she has mum to do it!

Jelley DS 7yrs is very good at tidying, sexist as this may appear I find it surprising as he's a boy. Maybe its a girl thing to be messy

Hi Simply. it must be really hard to work as well as coming home to house stuff.Hats off to you!

DD1 has her pre-school jabs tomorrow. She wasn't impressed when i explained to her about them .

SimplySparkling · 22/05/2007 22:27

Haha dc. Maybe tomorrow but I've got to sort the house out as we've got someone from work coming for tea and so I need to sort out the dining room, kitchen, sitting room, conservatory, hall, landing and bathroom out first. Aaagghh! Am working Thurs instead of tomorrow, though, so at least I'll have all day to do it. Am considering going swimming first thing, though only loons do that, of course. Whoops. Forgot. Silly me.

Thanks tort. Sometimes I feel that I'm doing everything after a fashion but nothing well. I'm currently going through a busy period in work (should last until about Sept) so there'll be no let up for a while. I hope the pre-school jabs go as well as they can for your dd1 tomorrow. It isn't nice as I well remember with my dd.
