All I can say is Well Done, Topsy Turvy. I spent a full 2 hours in DS2 and DS3's room yesterday, just so it would be half presentable for grandparents to play with them in it tomorrow. It really was an awful tip.
Now I only have time for 5 mins for every other job.

Next clear dining and coffee tables and wipe over.

Haha taking 5 mind to reply to you!
PBQ alter ego. Ummm no
in fact may stop this just in case I get confused again. Who I am is someone who sometimes needs to feel accountable to get things done. So if I say it here and I don't get it done you will all heap ridicule on my head and I shall quiver in the corner feeling very sad
I keep the house pretty clean and tidy so it's mostly just surface mess which needs cleaning.
Lib knows the truth.. It's out there
Anyway as I was. I shall refrain from boring you all/wowing you all with my exceptional cleaning skills and leave you to enjoy your Christmas Eve.
Over and out!

Oh goodie! Thanks OP!
I will be joining in soon after I've finished this cool drink! Just got home from a quick trip to Woolies, but my goodness it's hot out there! (the supermarket was quiet!)
Posted 24 December 2012 - 06:36 PM
Ahhh bugger it. I'm still going. I know who I am and this helps motivate me
plus I am not asking for advice on how to do it and them finding excuses why it can't possibly work
Oh and Lib, do you really think D is old enough? Old enough to trash it maybe, but I think the bed making and clothes straightening is a bit beyond him yet
Put DS folded clothes away

Okay I'm in,
Take all the rubbish out to the bins.
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:00 PM
Ok, I'm off to remake 3 x beds with clean sheets!
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:09 PM
and I'm done,
Now to take all the misc items lying around the lounge and put them back in their place.
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:17 PM
This is fantastic by the way.
I'm going to vacuum the lounge and rug now.
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:23 PM
I'm back with another cold drink!
Hot here in WA.
Now going to get washing off the line, and clean out the chicken coop!
Will take me awhile I think!
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:23 PM
The Big D certainly is...maybe not so much the little one
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:31 PM
Nah she's doing this list
Posted 24 December 2012 - 07:36 PM
and I'm back.
I think I'm taking a little more than 5 minutes but I am 38 weeks pregnant and it is really hot here at the moment.
next up - wipe down and dust surfaces.
Then have a cold class of water before I plan my next attack.
Posted 24 December 2012 - 08:21 PM
Well back finally
Everything is done and dusted
tackling the vacuuming and mopping took more than 5 mins so there was no need to include them on the list.
Last chore for the evening:
Wrap the last of DS presents and put them all under the tree
Goodnight all and a very merry Christmas to you all x
Posted 24 December 2012 - 08:52 PM
Merry Christmas! I've just wrapped all pressies, and now to the cleaning. I'll still be round at, oh, 4am, judging by the destruction. And 14 people coming tomorrow. YAY.
Posted 24 December 2012 - 08:59 PM
We've built and wrapped a bike, I have eaten the cookies and milk, broken the carrot, now I just have to put out the presents...
Merry Christmas x
