On (almost) getting stuff done
One load sorted, one load on the line and one load in the machine.
Enjoying the faint light on the freshly dusted sideboard before it all settles again and disturbs the sheen.
Bedclothes drying on the line.
The past week has been very dull. Dull but busy! Filled with washing sheets, doing laundry, dusting, cleaning, feeding children and all the usual tasks that are part of keeping everyone well fed and clean. There hasn't been any time for extra things like reading books, chatting with friends, quilting, etc and I have missed it. I don't cope well when I feel constantly rushed just to get the basic stuff done. A few extra hours in each day would be very welcome right now. And, hearing friends discuss nannies and cleaners and ironing help over the weekend just about did me in!
I do love it though, despite the lack of adult conversation (you, dear reader, are a very welcome part of my day in that dept.), the mundaneness of the tasks I do each day and the distinct lack of a paycheck (oh, how I miss having a paycheck) but if I wasn't home I would miss JW taking my hand, leading me down to the bedroom, pulling me down onto the rug and saying 'play with me'. And I would hate to miss that.
So there are still dishes in the sink but at least Iggle Piggle, Upsy Daisy and Macca Pacca have somewhere to live.
