Finish unpacking the house from our interstate move, washing and a vacuum and mop of the floors. Other than that an attempt to stay cool....acclimatising sucks.

Clean clean clean! Now the kids have finished school, no rushing about makes it easier.

Oh and definitely need to clean out the fridge.

Pay bills

I have done a load of washing so far, (just about to hang it out) ironing, cleaned out youngest DD drawers and got a pile of clothes to give away, wrapped a Christmas present, made beds, emptied dishwasher.

Just finished cooked breakfast, so now back to it!

Don't be too hard on yourself Liz, you've only just moved house.

Give your Mum and brother some jobs to do.
