MrsDamonSalvatore I am not sure you belong in this thread. Your progress is daunting!
I have done half of the hallway but ther is an increased chance that these items will now leave the house
I think I will get a cup of tea now and pay some bills.

Round one for this morning:
finished my freelance work (unfortunately an hour this morning not five minutes)
Hung out load of washing
Put another load on
Done the dishes
Cleaned the kitchen
sorted through a bunch of documents
Now bub is up from morning nap. Next on the list is bub's morning tea, clean highchair and then go down the street to do some chores (buy santa hats for husbands work and some dishwashing powder). Might treat myself to a coffee too. A large one.
