    I finally set up my nursery. With only 4-5 weeks it was just a little overdue. I'm very pleased with myself that we've finally done it.

    i will happily admit to having done NOTHING in the house today at all! didn't even make my bed. jumped out of bed, went shopping briefly, and spent all day in the garden! now, if we're talking DG roles in the garden, i'm WAY up there!

    Hhhmmm.. It seems I made lots of mess to add to my duties today!

    * Made pancakes for Luke's breakfast... cleaned that mess...
    * Made cookies for the jar at work (to serve with coffee's)... cleaned up that mess...
    * Made beef casserole & dumplings... cleaned up that mess..
    * 2 Loads of washing for home, 2 loads of washing for work (1 lot DH's work clothes.. ew.., 2nd lot tea towels for work... double ew...)
    * Tidied up the loungeroom about 4 times over as Luke & his friends came in and out all day playing MarioKart on the Wii....
    * Did the wages for work... (I know its not cleaning, but its a chore.. and annoying! )

    Now I'm looking at the massive pile of ironing that I need to do but am thinking that my new book and a glass of red after Luke goes to bed is MUCH more appealing

    So far I've:

    - put 2 loads of laundry in the machine
    - put 2 loads of laundry in the dryer (it's still raining)
    - put 3 buckets out in the rain to collect water to water my plants with (we have level 6 water restrictions here)
    - cleaned kitchen
    - made bed
    - decluttered knickers drawer and jewellery box
    - cooked playdoh
    - cleaned kitchen again
    - folded nappies and Jambin's clothesf

    Hopefully I will fit more in this afternoon. I have to go to the shops to buy my sister a birthday pressie, claim some medicare refunds, and get some socks for Jambin.

    I have vacuumed and mopped the majority of the house, been to the shops to get some food (not all of it healthy, haha).. done some washing, and I have some more to fold and put away. I also have a bathroom to clean but I probably won't do that till tomorrow if I can possibly help it..
    I also have a cake to bake this afternoon in preparation for a birthday tomorrow...

    Default Today I have

    had my first regular day of having both children at home - DS was in fulltime daycare until I was happy with my recovery from c-section.
    I have managed to do much more than I expected I would achieve having two kids at home all day:
    Swept and mopped floors
    Washed morning dishes
    Cleaned the stove
    Put dinner in slow cooker
    Had a shower
    Did a load of washing
    Made all the beds
    Cleaned up the mess DS made
    Went for a walk to shops with both kids
    Bought fruit and veg from Coles
    Made Icing and put on Milk Arrowroot Biscuits with DS
    Made lunch and had Lunch with DS
    Washed lunch dishes
    Re swept floors
    Hung out washing
    Emails to DH, Ebay check, Belly posts
    Re mopped the floors
    Folded and put away half the washing
    Went to the park
    Started chopping up vegies for dinner
    Finished the folding of the washing
    Finished cooking dinner
    Washed the dinner dishes
    I'm proud of myself

    Ok, I need to get motivated!! A fellow BB friend has been an absolute DG today and is putting me to shame really

    So what I have done so far today is:

    *Put a load of washing on
    *Made our bed
    *Tidied Oscar's room
    *Washed dishes & bottles
    *Started making Oscar's Treasure Chest "lolly bags"

    Ugh.. I need to still...

    *Put washing away
    *Vacuum
    *Clean up our bedroom
    *Tidy kitchen
    *Clean toilets

    That's about all I think. We have Oscar's birthday and baptism this weekend so I need to get cracking and get this house in order. It's much easier to think about it though
