    I've done a bit today, trying to catch up as I got NOTHING done last week due to becoming WYD pilgrims at the last minute..... & I mean at the very last minute, decided at 10:30am Tues & left at 11:30am Tues LOL so my house work didnt get touched

    Today I have:

    * vacuumed
    * mopped all floors including bathrooms (I hate this job!)
    * cleaned bathrooms (4 of them!)
    * Packed dishwasher & put that on, yet to empty it!
    * Took all rubbish & recycling out
    * 2 loads of washing (yet to fold/iron)
    * went through my shoes & threw out the ones I dont wear anymore... has been driving me nuts for ages!

    I have so much more to do but Braxton Hicks are getting the better of me, it's so frustrating having to stop all the time!



    Now about to have a nice hot shower while DD has her bath before DH comes home & we go to the IL's for dinner tonight!! (thank goodness I dont have to cook!)

    Today I:

    Put the washing up away and
    Put the load in the dryer away before going to work and...
    Came home from work and mowed the back lawn! (I'm so proud of myself - DH will be pleased because he hasn't got to do it all on Wednesday!)

    Okay. Today I did the following:

    • Vacuumed the whole house (except for the Boy's room You can't even set foot in the door), and to make things even better, Steph fell asleep in her high chair with the vac turned on! Got rid of 90% of the dust bunnies in the house (I think some were turning feral). Even did under the couch and its cushions!
    • Mopped the wooden floor and the laundry/bathroom, ensuite, and loo.
    • Cleared (sorted into sh*t boxes- recycling/rubbish, stuff for the Man to sort out, and urgent-bills/fines, filing, etc) just over half of the kitchen bench.
    • Got some chicken wings out of the freezer (they should be defrosted by tomorrow to go in the oven, our fridge is very cold).
    • Have dinner figured out for tonight (homemade fish and chips). (Just put the chips on, probably about 20 minutes too late, cos I was typing here!)
    • Tidied our bedroom (okay, I ended up stuffing a few things in our wardrobe, but I didn't do this anywhere else!), including making the bed super tidily (that never happens).
    • Tidied Steph's room.
    • Tidied the lounge.
    • Tidied the laundry/bathroom.
    • Had a shower and washed my hair (Sometimes I find it difficult to even have a shower! ).
    • Got the front lawn mowed (the only thing that I can think of that the Man says is definitely not a woman's job. Hey, that's fine with me!).
    • Washed the few dishes that were on the sink.


    AND survived rental inspection, that was between 3 and 5pm, instead of 5 and 6pm (that's what I thought the letter said, until I found it about 11.30 today as I cleaned up the kitchen bench! )

    SO, now I have a clean AND tidy house, which I had to do for the inspection, but more wanted to have happen for my birthday, which is this Saturday. Not that anything will probably happen here (or anywhere else, Man working until at least 3.30pm )

    YYYYYYYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (Can you tell that I'm just a little bit happy with myself? )

    CONGRATS NETIX for getting it all done for your rental inspection. What annoys me, is that you work work work so hard, then they wander about for like, 2 mins, and say, ok, seeya! No pats on the back... It's like, LADY! I"VE GOT A BABY AND I DONT CLEAN!!

    Punkin - LOL about the broom impersonating a mop. I think I have pulled that one of the closet pre-mop days too. Or, get a wet towel and do the 'shuffle shuffle slide'.

    I WAS supposed to have a HUGE DAY cleaning but I'm going shopping instead!!
