i have a raging sore throat, cough and a splitting head. (have for days, slowly getting worse). ive felt exhausted for days.

house was a tip, no energy to clean it but forced myself to. have scrubbed the walls in the back porch where that effing cat keeps coming in and spraying. still a stench, dont know where its coming from. every day i scrub it, then he comes in and does it again.

someone split juice on my sofa. sofa is crap anyway but now its wet too.

ds accidentally threw milk up the wall. while i scrubbed it off, dd took a pencil and crayoned all over the table.

while i cleaned the table she went and crayoned all over the front porch wall.

when i went to clean that up i found ALL my clean washing that had been neatly piled up to go upstairs thrown on the floor. dd must have rooted through for a top and messed it up, so ds had come downstairs, mistaken it for dirty washing and threw it all down for me to put in the laundry basket. it was ALL mixed up with genuine dirty washing.

the door wont stop going, the phone wont stop ringing. my mum just phoned up drunk wanting my dad's telephone number (they've only been split up 24 years).

and the emoticon wont work.

if i was physically capable of shouting i'd go AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH.

thanks. is good to get it out.

OMG I can't beat that (even if my nose is streaming and tickling and dd2 is producing industrial quantities of green snot and ds1 has hit ds2 far too many times and my shoulder is aching and I have to use pliers to work the oven and a spanner to work the hot tap and we are skint and I have no tomatoes).

you very good mummy nightowl

snowwonder · 08/04/2007 19:14

have you tried diluted white vinegar in a sprayer to get rid of the smell i sprey it in my rabbit hutch before refilling with sawdust!!

hope you feel better soon

nightowl · 08/04/2007 19:23

ha monika, you wouldnt be saying that if you knew me!

does vinegar really work snowwonder? i bought some stuff from the pet shop but its like weak washing powder and does nothing. i used milton with hot water in a spray bottle today. (to clean the walls that is, not spray the cat!!) although......

it works by neutralising the odour, and is cheap and cheerful
