We have had an extremely busy week, been on the go from the time we get up until the time we fall into bed (sometimes after midnight) so the housework has been given away until hopefully tomorrow afternoon, or maybe Sunday.

I have managed to keep up with the dishes and washing of clothes. But my floors need vacuuming and mopping, the bathroom needs a good clean, there is baskets of clean washing to fold, the ironing basket is overflowing, the spare bedroom has become a dumping ground, and we won't even talk about the dust!

Oh and the outside, well will not even go there.

So, fess up, who else is along for the ride?

Yes. I have had almost 11 weeks of morning sickness and this is dh's busy period at work. He called an emergency cleaner to come tomorrow morning  ddance.gif

Me. I just look at it and then tip some more cider down my throat.  

Too hot.  Too hard.  Can't be bothered.


I'm having a night off.

we haven't even got proper lighting (DH is away and i'm not getting up on step stool to change the globes, i get dizzy enough looking up when on the ground)

Although DH has just promised to put the tree up next weekend if the house is clean, so the kids are itching to get the place tidied up

God yeah.

Actually I just found the kitchen continental bench which makes a huge difference. It is DS's party tomorrow, not here, but everyone is dropping their children here and picking up, so we need to look somewhat responsible

Geez I hate cleaning

Yes. But more of a rats nest here. Still, I have cleared a small patch on the couch and am resting my weary a*se drinking a cup of tea and a beer.

I concur Coffeegirl. I am not moving until it cools down.

usually the answer would be yes, as we clean and tidy on saturdays, but atm i'm trying to get the house ready for christmas so it's actually much cleaner and tidier than usual (not clean and tidy mind you, but more than the usual friday wink.gif)

Yeah, shocker here, and won't get done tomorrow as I'm working all day and DH has to start moving a truckload (literally) of gravel from around the front of the house to the back of the house. With buckets.
s'OK, we've got Sunday free original.gif

Redkris, I think you can hire a wheelbarrow for the day from Bunnings, if there's one near you.  Might make your DH's day more bearable!

Cause I'm in the in-laws trying to track down a Christmas present for DD7.  

Home is another story though... ph34r.gif

I've only managed to keep up with dishes and washing because we have a very small kitchen and it doesn't take very long to have nowhere to prep food and we don't have THAT many clothes each so need to keep up in order to have clean ones to wear!



#18 ZECA

Posted 30 November 2012 - 07:19 PM

Yep!! Pigsty here too!!
My coffee table is covered with folded washing, the other lounge is still covered with unfolded washing, floors are grubby (mostly due to DD#3 finger food dropping...), bathrooms need cleaning, and of course once I've finished folding the washing there's probably another 4-5 loads that will need washing!!
My kids' rooms are total disasters so they've been told they need to be cleaned before the Xmas tree goes up this weekend. I'm so sick of their mess, not that I'm such a great example though!!!! blush.gif

It's been too hot here and our aircon broke last week. I have avoided spending as ugh time as I can at home but its still got messier and messier and I've done the bare minimum to keep it hygienic. :/

Exactly the same here OP.
Up at the crack of dawn with the young one, get everyone off to school and day care and me to work. Then it's home in the arvo just in time for a pre-dinner swim (much better than housework)  wink.gif  and relaxes everyone, well it should. Then off to make dinner, bathe kids, wash up, get load of washing on and on the line. By the time i sit down on my own i only get 30mins before i'm falling asleep. grrr

Same sh*t different day tomorrow. Can't wait till after Christmas and things relaaaax

I've decided the only solution to disgusting floors is to ignore them original.gif And make cinnamon rolls instead.

Our house is a pigsty as well, certainly not to a standard I want anyway.
Studying full time and currently 5 kids full time, plus 2 extras for the night. . . . .meh it can stay messy for all I care!
I have a sign on my door saying "this house is usually clean from between the hours of 9am-3pm Monday till Friday only. Over the weekend there is usually moments of sporadic cleanliness lasting anywhere between 5 seconds to 5 hours.  If you come at any other time then I am sorry you missed it!"
Most people miss it (the cleanliness that is lol) laugh.gif  blush.gif

Not me – I have seven 5 year olds coming (so 9 kids all up) for a fifth birthday party in the morning.  I still have heaps to do, and the 2 year old is snoring away but the 5 year old is too excited to go to bed.  It is quite nice to have the grot scrapped off the house, won’t last though.  I am just having a fortifying hot chocolate at the moment so I can listen to the whining about bed time.
