PBQ - I think you must have the cleanest fridge in all of EB !!  It seems to be on your list all the time original.gif

Seriously - our fridge gets cleaned out once in a blue moon (very very infrequently).

I am at work today but there is still stuff waiting to be done at home:

Collect girls, go home and make tea - usual bath, dinner, bed routine
Washing / folding / putting away clothes
Clean kitchen benches
Try and find my MP3 player which is missing
Organise for tomorrow - work clothes / lunch

You did well to get as far as you did.

I'm reading a great get a job type of book that I do recommend...

"The 6 reasons you'll get the job: what employers look for whether they know it or not" by Debra Angel MacDougal. It give some really interesting insights and tips on how to land a job (not that I have one at the moment - still looking). I borrowed it from the local library as an ebook.

I did ask the library about that and was told they dont have it at all, but I am trying another library, failing that I will ask the TAFE library or check EBAY

Yes for real- I found several shoved under kids beds that were not brought out last time. I also had a build up from when it rained last week.

Fridge gets cleaned weekly- somtimes just a tidy, other times and wipe out and others a scrub, this way I can use up stuff before they go off and it make things easier when something is needed

I clean my fridge out once a week. I think it's unhygienic not too so I'm right there with you. At a minimum throwing out the food and wiping down the shelves and door. A bicarb and vinegar wash once a month too.

Do your children help with chores. It seems like you have a lot of housework to do.

They do some things, but seemingly I can't expect too much yet, considering the extra load of towels I found in their rooms (more under DD's bed than DS's)

I think inspections daily and consequences need to come back into force this afternoon.

I can't understand how you do not notice towels are missing.

Seriously when I look in the bathroom, I notice straight away who hasn't hung their towel up.

When they seem to get clean ones out of cupboard it is quite easy.

same. I do our food shop on thursday afternoons so I empty out the fridge and clean before the new shopping goes in. Helps me not miss things  from the list too original.gif

As for towels, I dont think we own enough towels to do 4 loads, we change towels twice a week (unless theres an 'accident') and if the towels dont dry in time, the cupboard is empty!
