    since I'm home sick and slowly on the mend now, I've started actually doing stuff.

    Today I did ALL the dishes (I swear we had no clean dishes left in the house - I'd not washed for a week - and the boys wouldn't even think of washing dishes!)
    Swept the floors (need to do them again tonight - we have trees dropping flowers in back yard)
    2 loads of washing

    Have put in one load of washing to dry, another to actually wash (baby clothes) and currently tidying the study / Pip's room.

    Schaz - would they be the jacarandas falling? Ours don't have flowers down here until Jan / Feb!

    Well I finally did it. My mt washington (turned volcano) is no more. All the washing is folded and put away. I'm also doing a couple of loads which I will fold and put away as I go.

    I'm going to do a big tidy up this afternoon.

    Feeling really energetic today its great!

    Kaz - nope the tippuanas (sp?) - yellow flowers (2 shots in my gallery) - jacarandas are uni exam trees, when the jacarandas bloom it is final exam time!

    Today I've
    Done ALL the washing (last load about to be hung up)
    Done ALL the dishes
    Cleaned the stove
    Swept the floors (again!)
    Dusted the loungroom
    Sorted the piles of mail in the loungeroom (found bills that need to be paid - grrr at my DH)
    Changed the bed

    now I'm about to have lunch and a relax.

    More to do this afternoon, if I can stop coughing.
