I haven't bleen blogging for a while because I've spent ages lately researching breeds of dogs. However, I'm pleased to say I'm not glued to the internet any more, because I've now got a dog!!! His name's Buster and his a 2yr old chocolate lab. He's huge, he weighs 48.5kilos, thats almost one of my friends, Sally! But, he is gorgeous. The boys love him too, although they are not keen on taking him on his long walks in minus weather! We've had him two days which means two lots of screaming filled afternoons when my children pittifully whine about their cold hands all the way home. It's not just my blogging that's suffered this last week or so, my washing pile is so high now that it's actually spilling over into my bathroom from behind it's hiding curtain. David, the other night was going to the pub and I had to pull out a jumper for him to wear from the washing pile because he hadn't got any clean, it's awful I know. So today that's what I've been doing this morning, catching up on all the housework I've neglected for more than a week, joy! Oh well, back off to tackle upstairs! I'll update soon x
I've put this page up so I can basically just rant about how badly I still struggle with being perfect!
Okay, so my day to day,
Well, last night my poor little man, Will was poorly. It meant that I had to go up to him and change his sheats because bless him, he'd been sick. (This meant i missed the first 20minutes of One Born Every Minute by the way...gutted!). Ofcourse, it also meant Jac, my youngest woke up too so they've both been overtired and therefore just joyous today! My attempts at getting Will outside in the fresh air today ended up in a very cold and grumpy child throwing a temper tantrum for quite some time!
My house does actually look like a bombzone today, mainly because I've been trying to console inconsolable children but also due to the fact that I've not actually got any cleaning products in at the moment. See, where I live is up on the side of a mountain. They don't really think to grit here and when the roads are bad but still passable everywhere else, they're not here. For most of December we were snowed in and then when the roads got better, we all got sick!! Needless to say, not much shopping got done in December and then this last week the roads have kept me at home again.
I do have a dishwasher which is grand but for the childrens beakers etc which need to be washed by hand, there's no washing up liquid...grand! So right now there's a stack of washing up still waiting to be done and being as we've just finished eating tea, I'm sitting here looking at the piles of egg noodles and mushed oranges on the floor where Jac's thrown them all (in fits of laughter) on the floor. Ofcourse, a perfect housewife would have already cleared it all up by now, but, like I said, I'm not perfect! Hense, I'm procrastinating by sitting at my computer blogging!
The day hasn't been a complete disaster though. I've finally got Jac taking 6 - 8 steps all by himself which he and I are very proud of him for and I got to spend a good hour or two on the sofa with my boys watching madagascar this afternoon, enjoying lovely cuddles.
Can't be all that bad!
