    haven't achieved much physically - bit warm and feeling awful!

    fixed the broken bean bag AGAIN (six year olds REALLY need to learn not to jump on them)

    have sorted and catalogued lots though (nerd alert!)
    all PS2 games done
    all DVD's done (784 by the list!)
    kids books done
    adult books started (but too many of them to expect to finish too quickly!



    arranged a friend to do what i'm no longer able to in the garden - couple of hours a week - including hanging out washing for me. she had difficult pg's as well, and knows what i'm going through, plus she's a SAHM that to school aged kids that needs a change of scenery

    nothing too strenuous - but i feel like i'm achieving something - no more "have we got this" - will be a few little folders DH can put his hands on and look it up (or ask me to do it - much more likely!)

    I just brought a load of washing in off the line (it rained yesterday and got it all wet again so I've been waiting for it to dry)...
    That's all. Oh, did some dishes this morning.

    Very slack day today. But I got a lot done yesterday while DD was at daycare so I'm calling that my effort for the week hehehe. I'll have to do a bunch of stuff tonight once she's gone down, but until then I can't really get into mopping or anything important.

    i am sooo tired. At 11pm last night the veins on top of my hand were bulging. This Aussie day weekend, the max amount amount of time i sat would equate to not more than 1 hour (incl. meal times).
    I -
    --> cleaned both bathrooms (baths, showers, basins, toilets)
    --> mopped entire house floorboards and tiles
    --> dusted entire house (incl. window sills)
    --> took down drapes, and sheers on onside of the house (4 rooms), washed, hung, ironed, put up
    --> wiped kitchen cupboard surfaces as well as fridge, dishwasher
    --> prepared b''fasts, cooked dinners on all 3 nights, one of which was a bbq and had friends over (so extra special salads, desserts etc..)
    --> did the weekly shop
    --> iron two baskets of clothes
    --> clothes washing and hanging
    --> the regular dishwashing after meals etc
    --> attended to everybody's beck and call "mummy, i want this or i want to eat that"
    --> changed nappies every 1/2 hour due to Ela having the runs
    --> changed bed sheets

    I am soooooo exhausted. And now, i'm at work. I need a break! Why do i have to be a clean freak?
    Thanks for listening to me winge.

    ^ Amen, ladies. Just had five days of explaining to DH that yes, I felt like curling up in a ball and dying because I am really, really sick, but unfortunately I still have to take care of things around here while he's a miserable, snotty sack of useless.

    Anyway, I had to go shower a bit earlier because today I've done two loads of laundry, three lots of dishes (I swear I don't know where they come from, I haven't even had breakfast yet!), swept, vacuumed and mopped the floors, cleaned the pets' water and food bowls out, and still had time to get a couple of cigarettes in.
    Successful day for me

    Today I have:

    Done 3 loads of washing and have the 4th in the machine
    Done 2 loads of dishes in the dishwasher and have the 3rd going (there were a lot of big things which is why so many).
    Folded clothes
    Cleaned out my wardrobe and donated about 10 bags of clothes to charity (boy was that well overdue and didn't it just feel great!).
    I was going to clean the bathroom while DD slepted but then I got into the wardrobe and did that instead.
    It feels heaps later than it really is so I know I can get heaps more done today, maybe 2 or 3 more loads of washing.

    All my work for the day is done - yay!!

    *Wash dishes
    *Tidy living areas
    *Couple of loads of sheets/towels

    Bedroom needs doing but DH has foolishly offered to do it, so I'm gonna hold him to it! I actually get bored these days - it takes me all of 15 minutes to do my housework, and then I've got nothing to do!! So I've just measured up my windows and am going to attempt making curtains on Friday

    Is it just me, or is nothing getting done in BB land? Where have all our Goddess' gone? Consider this a mega bump, and kick in the pants (for me anyway) to get things moving.

    Today:
    Make beds - DONE
    Folding washing - two baskets, plus what dries later
    Fold and hang up two loads of washing (I fold when I take out of the machine, that way I don't iron later) - DONE
    A quick vac through the house - DONE
    Wash dishes - DONE
    Get dinner sorted
    Try to start a meal plan (Need some divine help with that!)
    Repack the trailer to go to the tip to fit more in
    Try to clear the kitchen bench a little (hey, a little is better than nothing)
    Oh yeah.... clean a plastic tub in the bathroom that had a bottle of oil spill in it....(and I have no paper towel!)
    Birthday Cake for The Boy..... - DOING IT

    Other things I also got done today:
    A little bit of tidying/rearranging outside
    Cleaned the stove (not that it was very dirty to start with)
    Cooking a big pot of creamed rice
    And an extra load of washing (wherever that came from )

    What do you need to do today. and what have you already got done???
