No, I didn't do the housework.
Posted 12:25 PM on Thu-13-Feb-2014
Every wondered what your house would look like after ignoring almost all house work for a week? Well, I just found out!Over this last week, I have had my nerd hat on, and have been studying every last minute of the day, except of course when working or sleeping. Yup! I can cook dinner, and walk on the treadmill whilst studying!Everything has pretty much been placed on the back burner. My exam was over and done with yesterday, and I now have more understanding of my children's frustration when they come home telling me their exams had questions in them with things they have never learned about. Mine was much the same, and to be honest I'm a little annoyed about that!Anywho, semester Read More...

Dishes are Dangerous
Posted 12:38 PM on Wed-30-Oct-2013
It can be rather hard getting teenagers to tidy up. Getting them to help out with household chores can be like pulling hens teeth!Miss 15, bless her, Seeing that I have had a rather hard time over the last few days, and been feeling a little down, has been helping out a little more. Last night when i asked her to unload the dishwasher, She jumped up, and instantly did it. Normally it would take her days to get there, with a lot of moaning and complaining in between.Just as she was finished however, she stood up, and whacked her head a beauty on the overhead cupboard door.A trip to the A & E later, she has a rather badly bruised skull, a day off school, and a whopping headache. The site is ex

Ooops spoke to soon!
Posted 3:44 PM on Mon-28-Oct-2013
So yesterday, in somewhat of a rant, I hastily spoke of how The Bloke, like many other Blokes around the place, seem to, for what ever reason feel rather chuffed with themselves and like everyone to know about any small household chore they may have carried out.I apologise though, as today I sit here, not just typing my words, but eating them too!The last few years (summer's in particular) I have been a novice vege gardener, and I've really enjoyed the fresh goodies we've eaten out of the garden. A couple of weekends ago though, as I was pulling weeds, the reality hit me that a) gardening & pregnancy was not the most comfortable hobby and b) that I really am not Read More...

DYC Vinegar
Posted 10:14 PM on Tue-20-Aug-2013
I have been following the new DYC group with great interest and some of the tips in there are pretty sweet!  http://social.kidspot.co.nz/917/0/Spring+Clean+with+DYC/$id4  Today I looked at my stove-top and thought, ummm...that's embarrassing- so I'll take a photo and share it on the internet (bah ha ha!)    And I wondered if some vinegar and maybe a little baking soda would have much effect.  I poured DYC White Vinegar onto the stovetop, and sprinkled some baking soda and then let it soak with paper-towels for about 30 minutes.  Hardly any effort and this is the result:   This is actually the cleanest I think I have e

Progress - Fly lady
Posted 7:36 AM on Wed-14-Aug-2013
I've been doing the fly lady cleaning for awhile now. I haven't stuck to it everyday but on the whole my house is cleaner. I end the day by shining up my sink and clearing the bench. Is so much nicer waking up to a clean kitchen. Also I have got a timer and put it on for 15 minutes and do as much as I can in that space of time. It's amazing how much you can get done. Feeling really crappy today with tonsillitis and a chest infection so have been slack. wishing I could spend the day in bed.

FLYlady day one
Posted 10:24 PM on Thu-8-Aug-2013
Well the first day is over and I feel very motivated and seriously positive about myself right now. I started today by putting on my running shoes and it really does work. I did more during the day and felt lazy sitting LOL. The sink is nice and shiny, I followed instructions and left it to soak before scrubbing until shining. The edges all got scraped with a sharp knife to get any gunk out. Will be way easier to keep that way now. I've identified my 'hot spots' - you know those areas that gather clutter. I have two - my bench in the corner and my bedside table, so I've cleared those and found new homes for the clutter (most of it into the bin)Next I did a 27 fling boogie Read More...

Starting my FLYlady journey
Posted 10:02 PM on Wed-7-Aug-2013
My house isn't particularly messy, in fact it's quite tidy but it isn't CLEAN. And I have horrible habits of stuffing everything into the nearest drawer or cupboard. Which is why I decided to start the flylady programme. Let's see how I go. Starting tomorrow I am wearing shoes... bye bye bare feet and hellloooo nice soft feet. (I hope) Also tomorrow I start by shining up my sink. It sure could do with a scrub. Will keep you up to date on how my house gets transformed LOL.
