Hi smokering. I hope both your cleaning and writing were successful.


Hi *bejeweled*! I hope you were able to garden with your daughter. That's such a special thing to share.


I've been working in the boys' toy room and have gotten it mostly done. I'll be giving away several items. Beyond that, I've cooked breakfast and lunch and have washed one load of diapers, but nothing else. Still, the toy room has needed my attention for weeks.

post #894 of 1665

shined the sink

made tea for myself (drunk in the mug that reminds me that i'm not going to give in to MIL and her awful behavior = hoping to make it a daily habit and positive affirmation thing !!!)

did what little washing up there was

wiped the table completely (including the vertical sides of the plastified tablecloth, where sticky leaks tend to be ignored .... managed not to have meals on that table yesterday so that was needed ... the rest of my household has NO inckling that this can and must be cleaned too ....)


am off to clean the toilet

then wipe the inside of the sink and of the bath


hopefully the floors will get tackled today too ....


feeling a bit better about "more control over chaos" .... but could have done with a little more sleep .... why do kids forget to whisper when they get up before 6:30 am ??????? hope my bad mood will recede during the morning ....

post #895 of 1665

Whew - the wedding is over! All went well and I'm glad the stress and craziness is behind us... just in time for the stress and craziness of back-to-school. wink1.gif

Right; after mooching around for most of the day, I have decided to be productive; and if I can only do that 15 minutes at a time, well, so be it.


First 15:


-General tidying of desk, table and floor - threw out some old flowers


Second 15:


-Started planting out punnet of red onion seedlings


Third 15:


-Finished red onion seedlings, planted row of lettuces, unloaded dishwasher, loaded it back up, entered discount club thingy


Fourth 15:


-DD woke up; went on a walk with her around the orchard to get some lemons


Fifth 15:


-Made sultana loaf with DD, cleaned the kitchen a bit


Sixth 15:


-Copied out two recipes, then the baby woke up and it all went to heck. :p


Seventh 15:


-Started rolling out pizza dough


Right. Now I've rolled out eight pizzas, and should have just enough time to make the toppings, plait DD's hair and do some more cleaning before the in-laws arrive for dinner.


A good afternoon. Thank you all. :p
