Long Lists and Gastro Bugs

Now that I have stopped for the day (well, stopped for this second, I still have folding to do) I can feel every muscle and joint and bone in my tired body.  Who need Pilate's when you are go-go-go all day long??!! I even got to kill squashed to a mooshy paste 3 red-back spiders along the way. Exciting.  


Pencil at hand! ready to go... This is where I have always put my pencil and yet 
I still look around for a minute before remembering where I put it. 

My list of things accomplished today:


- All bed linen washed, line dried and put back.
- Preschool Alphabet homework sheets
- All towels washed,  line dried and put back.
- Change the neighbour kid who has come over to play costume fifty billion times
- All clothes washed, line dried and... folding can wait.
- Sing some tunes with my little muso boy
- lunch all round
- Kitchen cleaned
- Sawed, sanded, drilled some more owls
- Upstairs vacuumed 
- Change a nappy or two
- One bathroom cleaned
- Jumped in some puddles and hosed down the kids feet
- 5 hedges trimmed right down and then I even pulled the 5 stumps out! (Wooohoo! Hear the crowd roar as I hold the final stump in the air with victory! I got that sucker out! Yes!!-- looks around for some applause-- none. oh well) 
- Clean up huge big mess I made, straighten up the garden and spread out some lawn feeder
Before/After


... got to about here in this eventful day, covered head to toe in sweat (ew!) and dirt and mud and a tag along spider-EEK!! Hit that off. Walked back inside to make sure Milla was watching a movie and resting still (cause she felt yuckier as the day went on) and... Hello vomit. Milla now has a gastro bug. OK!! Switch into awesome carpet-cleaning-spew-catching-dinner-cooking-baby-showering-reading-books-into-bed, still covered in dirt super-mum mode... few!


Phoenix thought it was a hide your head in a bucket kind of day... hehe 

But oh... I have fresh clean sheets on my bed!! How great is fresh clean sheets!
Cannot wait to crawl into bed and rest.
