I look around and me and my house is a mess and yet I am sitting here on this computer looking at nothing in particular and putting off the inevitable.

I have to clean.

But not only that, I have to declutter and just basically get organised.

Now that I am getting used to the lack of sleep, I am getting around 4 1/2 hours a night, I think it's time I started to reorganise!

Day 1
Fold mountain of washing
Change linen on the beds
Go through linen closet (since I bought new sheets last week at a fantastic price!)

That should be enough for today. Luckily we are having leftovers for dinner tonight - I made to yummiest barbecue chicken in the slow cooker yesterday. I got the recipe from my mothers group friend
Rachel. So we are having it with some rice and vegies.

Anyway, since I have sat here, Luke has decided to make some more mess, not that you can really tell. So I better hightail it and go and start on my to do list.

I am SO not a domestic goddess.............


  1. Hi Beth! I'm a friend of Lusi's ( I teach at SP & T ,too )& she told me to pop in to your blog !! Nice to "meet " you! How cool is Lus?? When I read your Housework issues I thought "FLYlady". No, I'm not mad...maybe a bit...check out her website! She has seriously made the HUGEST differnce to my home & how I deal with keeping up with it!

  7. Oh Beth, you mean you actually need to FOLD washing once it's dry??????? PMSL! :)

  8. I'm not a fan of housework either, but heyt, the quicker it's done, the momre time you have to scrap!

  9. Hi Beth,

    I know where you are coming from with the housework. I'm looking around at a mess too :( I don't know how you function on just 4.5 hours of sleep a night!

    I'm glad you liked the Barbecued chicken, it's yummy isn't it :)

  10. Hey Beth, I have had the same issues as Kylie lately! Thanks for the update. Your LO (last post) is brilliant and all the best with your housework! I'm off to check out flylady now ... xxx

  11. *sigh* We have Mt Washmore in our house often too! Today I managed to get through a fair bit, mainly becuase our Em is going on camp tomorrow so I washed, dried, folded and ironed every piece of clothing she owned so that packing tonight would be easier. LOL

    Forgot to say in the previous post how CUTE you and Lus look in that piccy!! So sweet! :-)
