Hi PBQ - so are you moving out of your current rental place to a place you have purchased and are currently renovating. Are you doing the renos yourself or are you getting tradies in?

I am currently painting and boy-oh-by are my arms sore.

Today for me is a paint free day so...

Get kids up, morning chores (washing already in machine), off to school
go to work
come home
school pick-up
DS music lesson
DD ballet lesson
dinner
relax with a puzzle

Yes I have bought a place- we settle today original.gif  I will be doing a fair bit of the renos, with SIL helping, but mostly the prep, ripping up carpets, scrubing every wall inside (which are all very badly smoke stained), ripping out the old kitchen,  removing wall paper out of one room, (that all has to be done by Friday), then there are tradies coming in an out too-- shower screen goes in tomorrow, then BIL, electrician, plumber over the weekend, painters all of next week and carpet layers the week of the move (15th Dec)

Feeling in a really rotten mood today:

- ignore all housework
- try and sell / give away the children
- hide under the bed
- cry

That'll do for today.

Enjoy it while you can. Because nothing is as bad as a 15yo boys bedroom.

Well I have now spent way too much time on the Centrelink website and I can't finalise it because I need my son's student number and he has that at school with him. So I will have to start from scratch later  rant.gif
