This morning after I’d dropped the children off at nursery again, I came home determined. I hadn’t eaten breakfast yet, but I’d made the children packed lunches (photos), so I’d nibbled on some crusts, etc. while doing that..terrible habit. So I put out the laundry, stripped all the beds and hung the duvets on the balcony and gave them a good beating. Put the blankets in the washing machine and sheets in the basket ready for later. Then dusted my room and the children’s room, vacuumed and wet mopped all the floors upstairs. I’m not sure I have ever done that. I’ve just used those crappy sheet things in the past, but not as often as I should, and usually just hoover up there. Then back downstairs to hoover and wet mop down here too. I am still getting down on the floor with a cloth to dry them off. I hate that part, it makes me feel like a skivvy, but otherwise the hard dirt doesn’t come off..like when the children spill juice or milk and I don’t notice it…Or even just a drop of water on some dust. I know laminate is technically easy to clean, but it’s not as forgiving as carpet. So that done, then some more washing up, and I could relax, feeling as if I’d acheived something. I could’ve sat down and eaten breakfast, taken ages to get up after starting on watching crap on t.v., but I decided to approach the jobs like an actual job today as opposed to things that “should really get done”. Now I can enjoy my afternoon..all one hour of it before I have to pick up the children, ha ha.
L went to nursery a bit brighter today. There was no violence as I put on his uniform, and he was very well rested after his long day yesterday. He walked across the playground and waved goodbye and blew some kisses with a smile. I’m guessing he might be a bit crazy when I pick him up, but I’m hoping he remembers our chat from yesterday about being a good boy today. We’ll have to wait and see. I’m attaching some pics of our park trip yesterday, maybe we’ll go today too, or just play outside the house. I have some flowers to tend on this lovely sunny day!
