We are all ready for the week ahead. Homework completed, uniforms washed and ironed, baking done, house clean and semi-tidy.

We had a hot lunch today, just having a quick and early tea in about an hour, then off to Community Mass at DD school. Looking forward to it.

How about you?

Still got to cook dinner, bath kids, put them to bed, make lunch for tomorrow.

I've ironed uniforms though. biggrin.gif

Need coffee.

Nothing is done here. We just got home from spending the afternoon swimming.  Dh has to hit the supermarket to buy stuff for lunches tomorrow at some stage, and I have to wash DDs swimming things cause school swimming starts tomorrow.  Other than that not much else will get done.  I'm too tired to care

Today I...
Vacuumed, mopped, cleaned the bathroom, DS's room, toyroom, kitchen. Sterilised bottles. Did dishes, washing, folding. Organised my party menu and to do list for DS's 1st b'day. Baked lunches for the week. Made cottage pie (which took far too many hours) and is in the oven in the final stage now. Cleaned out both fridges thoroughly. Weeded for about an hour. Took care of a sulky 8yr old and miserable 1yr old in between.

Yeah...I'm just ready for bed lol.

Oh wait, still have uniforms to iron sad.gif

ETA: I'm now enjoying a wine while DH puts the little monster to bed wink.gif

I'm exhausted and looking forward to going back to work tomorrow for a break.

I've spent yesterday doing wedding planning/dress shopping and today shuttling my mum around the city looking at real estate.

Sounds like fun but it's all so draining!

I spent most of the day outside working my butt of in the yard. Managed a tip run with all the green waste in the middle of it all.

DD is showered and I have also melted away the grime from the yard in a stinking hot shower. We are fed and just watching Master Chef before bed. I will be laying out DDs uniform soon and having an early night after Master Chef.

Uniforms dry, no ironing here.  Snacks organized, I make the sandwich in the morning.

We had pizza for tea now the kids are splashing in the clam pool, I wash them in there when its hot!

Bedtime in 15 for the big one and my little one will tell me when he is good and ready to got to sleep!  1 year olds!

As for me, I'll be trying to watch The Block that I recorded.

Exhausted.  DD let me have about three hours sleep before the alarm clock dragged me out of bed at 5:30.  Now I'm just waiting for her to crash so I can, too!  Very grateful we had leftovers for dinner and that required zero thought or effort.

It's still like 38 degrees here at 7.30, so hot, we are just about to eat home made hamburgers, I'm still cleaning and washing after being out all weekend, still need to get school stuff ready, kids are still running around getting wet in the pool and sprinkler so we may just skip the bath tonight since it's late.
Yeah not very organised here tonight but it's been a huge, fun weekend, the house is clean since I just spent 3 hrs cleaning and the kids wouldn't be sleeping in this heat yet anyway so it's all good.

My body finally said enough after the past month t work and so I have been sleeping or lazing most of the day with swollen glands.
I packed a case too, as tomorrow I fly off to Sydney after work for a two day communication course at NIDA. It sounds great and I applied for the funding as part of work's professional development program. But I don't want to leave DH and the kids.  sad.gif  I am such a sook.
