REALITY CHECK

Reality check...I get asked from time to time 'How do you manage to get so much stuff done' I smile sweetly and do not comment. I know the secret!!! I love blog land, its so lovely to see all the pictures of corners of peoples homes, and I admit I love some of my corners, BUT today I am showing you the picture that is the daily truth behind getting stuff done...you don't do other stuff!!! Like house work, well not until you can write your name in the dust! SO I was super busy again yesterday, In the morning I altered a skirt, seem to be taking in a lot of skirts in lately, is this good news or maybe I should not buy the ones that sit on you hips, no good after having a couple of children, not a good look! Then I sat and cut out the dinosaur patterns (more information on this to follow over next week). Ran out the door and left the above mess like this all day. My little helper and I spent the afternoon in the garden, mowing the lawns, sanding the wooden furniture and even started painting the children's picnic table before I had to leave that mid way for the school run... Early evening play outside (ignoring the painting of the table in the middle of the lawn) mostly playing in the sand pit. Then remembering we had an egg to decorate for my older child's school for an Easter Egg competition. Left the mess and then went inside to make more (creative) mess...
Introducing to you 'Chick and Bunny', their little hen house too. Now anyone know how to get superglue of your hands? the bits would not stick so in my wisdom I got my superglue out, not a good plan when working with two excited children, they were not allowed near it, I wish I wasn't!
So then it was bedtime, as the children chilled out with their bedtime milk and cookies I ran round the garden like a mad women clearing up the mess. Sadly I left the washing up, not like me I usually like to get this done first, now I know why. Children asleep, a quick tidy up of the dinosaur mess and a pleasant hour knitting whilst watching Desperate Housewife's, Ewww! Knitting with lumps of super glue on your skin is not a nice experience. Time for bed, OH NO NOT THE DISHES. I fell into bed just before midnight. Yippee my little one slept through and he was so pleased with himself (not as pleased as me!) 'Mommy I a good boy I stayed in my room'
Finally the Month of Moo picture, My friends know how much I love my Moos and this is a card I was sent a year ago and it takes pride of place in my stamping room. Have a good day...

WARNING WARNING WARNING
My spell checker is not working, I pressed it to go and it said 'DONE SPELLING' not a single spelling wrong, MMMMM!!!! This can not be right, I put in an incorrect word and you guessed it, it did not highlight it. SO I am a little nervous at posting this, I can not read my own spelling errors, cut me some slack today please, I apologise in advance.

I'm glad that I'm not the only one with dishes in and near to the sink. I think the big difference is, you washed yours. I look at mine and plead with them to be clean.

Looks just like my house, who wants to live in a show home?!

Oh Suzie what a nice post, your children will not remember the mess, they will remember the memories of you are giving them!! I really think messy art projects are the best memories kids have!!!

I just giggled at the kitchen photo, so similar to my own. Love it!!!

Oh, that makes me feel so much better. The mess in my house builds during the week, then I have to frantically tidy up last thing on a Thursday before the cleaner arrives in Friday morning. The cleaner is my one luxury as a working Mum....oh and the fact I live with a tidy freak.
