I need to have a mammoth clean up.
I have 5 rooms left to do in the house, Kitchen/diner, lounge, downstairs bathroom, stairs/landing and utility room( ita only little but is probably the worse out of the lot, its become a bit of a dumping ground and theres all sorts of *** in there)
also need to go food shopping , got quite alot in iceland the other day, but still need to go asda for some bits.
need to buy the last few stocking fillers for h, and wrap them, then just got pressies for I to wrap. so not loads.
I have today and tommorrow to do this, Monday im at work in the morning, However its a family fun day to so i wont be doing any work, im taking I with me, then need to pop to my mums to exhange pressies before going out for dinner with friends.
H is at work til about 6 both days, so im on my own with a toddler, its going to be hard work isnt it.

My list doesn't seem to be getting any shorter, I keep thinking of "important" tasks that I "need" to do..
I've a load of washing in that I need to get finished, spun and thrown into the dryer, then ironed and put away today if possible
I need to get the stairs and landing hoovered (in an ideal world, H would do this however, he has gone shooting for the whole day...)
I'd like to pull down the shower curtain and get that washed and back up, same for the bath mats etc
I STILL need to gut the bathroom, am losing hope that H is going to help me with this!
I then need to re-tidy the house, and re-hoover (Have done this at least 3 times this week - I think I need to just ban my H from coming home!)
I've also got some mail that has been redirected here from Hs uncle which we should pop round, but I don't have the car
I need to source or make some dessert for Xmas day as the supermarket has sold out of the lovely yule log I had my eye on!
H also needs to wrap my presents which are still sitting on the stairs, in my way!
And i've also realised, i've not got any kind of birth plan written, so that is on my list for tonight when I sit down.

I need to take the kids to get their hair cut, tidy pretty much every room in the house but no point doing this today as it'll be a tip again tomorrow, go to Morrisons to pick up food order, another load of washing, finish the ironing and wrap the last few presents. I am currently sat on the couch doing nothing!

I need to wrap the girls presents and presents for H
Write the cards for the above
H is going food shopping today so just need to email him my list
Buy some red wine to have mulled wine tonight with some mince pies
Buy some wine to take with us on Christmas Day and a present for the host
Just the general daily housework plus change the beds
Oh and move some money around our bank accounts
Not too bad as most of it can be done tonight while drinking mulled wine

I really wanted to do a sort out of some of C's toys before Christmas day as well, but I doubt we'll get round to doing that.

I use the foam Mr Muscle oven cleaner, or oven pride.
I've been ruthless in C's room. 2 black bags of recycling, 1 for charity, and 1 rubbish. Took ages, but it's done.
