My house is a complete tip, so i'm making a start on sorting it out today.

Kids are still off school, but i'm looking after dd2's friend and her sister too so they are all happily playing and nicely occupied upstairs, so I am starting downstairs.

done : 1 load of washing, 2nd load in, breakfast stuff washed up, work tops cleaned and cleared.

to do : About 3 more loads of washing, get dry washing in, clean tops of kitchen cupboards. Tidy living room, clean living room, clean windows in living room and clean bathroom.

Right i'm off again.

Yep same here, always after school holidays or whenever dh has had a few days off from work. How is it that a 2 year old can understand the concept of a laundry basket but a grown man can't????? I've tried the 'if it's not in the basket it doesn't get washed' thing but I don't have the willpower!

LIZS · 04/06/2007 14:51

So far :
Washed bedding and put out on line to dry (debating if it is going to rain in which case I'll dash and fetch it in)
Unloaded /reloaded dishwasher
Wiped kitchen surfaces
Bleached sink
Tidied dd's room and sorted her cupboard/drawers
Made a mop cap for dd's school dressing up tomorrow

Iron last week's washing (one basket and drying rack's worth) and put away
