We had a realy productive day. I was on my feet for almost 7 hours. Only managed about 6 cups of tea today, usualy we hit well over double that. We have two reasonably tidy rooms. I'd be happy for someone to drop by unannounced. I managed to fill about 3 recycleing bags and 2 bin bags just from the kitchen. No idea what OH managed to get rid of. Tomorrow it's the bedrooms. Oh is working tomorrow so will have to be fairly quick. I wish I could leave it till December, but sometimes I feel like I just can't do anything. So have to start ages before I want it done. It's nearly impossible to do anything when ds is off school. Both kids in the house at the same time, usualy ends with us trying to tidy but as soon as we get started they start arguing. Much easier with just one kid home. We can set them up with an activity, OH stays in the same room, and we can get something done.

Big clean needs to start for me soon....

Upstairs
Need to sort out my present stash, though not quite finished yet! Girls bedrooms need a toy sort out. Then dust, hoover etc as normal

Downstairs
Really want to decorate lounge before Christmas, we have the paint and paper but no time. May make a start this weekend.
In the meantime I'm doing a toy sort out, cleaning the bathroom and the kitchen. OH gave the bathroom a good clean recently so shouldn't have much to do. Kitchen will take a while although small as I want to have the oven cleaned plus all the units etc.

All in time for the tree going up 1st December!!!!

I swear, it's like my kids know I have plans. DD woke up at 11pm last night, and was up until about 3am. I was exhausted this morning. So was she. She has decided she no longer needs a nap, but had one today. So we didn't manage to get into the bedrooms. So decided to keep it simple by attacking the downstairs loo, upstairs bathroom, downstairs hallway and the stairs. Our black bin is so full my mum ended up taking 2 bin liners of rubbish with her to put in her bin. Oh is taking dd to playgroup tomorrow, so once we have dropped ds off I will come home for an hour before I leave for my appointment and put away some laundry and clear out the kids clothes.
It's a shame we don't ever have people come round because right now, I'd be happy for people to drop in. The downstairs is all nice and tidy.

Today I managed to start the toy sort out and my Christmas stash is sorted.
Wasn't going to do their clothes but I will as my mum buys them clothes bags too.

Myself and DD2 aren't feeling too great today so trying to have some quiet time together so we feel better.

I got absolutely nothing done today. I was going to deal with laundry but during the school run ds and his friends gave me a list of snacks they wanted after school, before their activity. So I decided to go buy them bits. Naturally they picked things we don't have in. I'm determined to get the clothes dealt with tomorrow. Tumble dryers broken and being fixed Friday so I want to have all this clean stuff put away before I work on washing and drying a weeks worth of clothes.

Our Big clean this year has been a bit crazy

I have taken some of ds's toys up and sorted through them. However.
. We are currently decorating the nursery and ds has a new single bed which we cant build till the floor is done as a big set of drawers is going from ds room to the nursery.

So it has started but..... it has made things much worse before better

Its amazing how fast it actually goes from November to Christmas. I started konmari this year so thankfully most of the tidying, sorting and general binning is done. I really need to go through the presents at some point this weekend as finishing shopping on Monday with dh.

This weekend I'm planning on sorting the present stash, taking all the boxes and packaging to the tip and sorting a collection for our old matress that ds currently has in his room. I'll blitz the upstairs cleaning sunday morning before the kids go to a party and the downstairs cleaning Sunday night. At some point Monday I'll need to drop a carload of donations to the zero waste scheme and toys to the nursery toy sale. I'm leaving next week free to really go through the kitchen as the medicine cupboard in particular seems to just multiply its contents!
