Today...I Was Awesome!


Everyone knows about my aversion to housework. As far as I'm concerned there are so many other things I would rather be doing....reading, drinking tea, eating chocolate, blogging, playing with the children....almost anything really.

But today something happened. Something highly unusual, something completely unprecedented. Today I cleaned. And I didn't just clean a little...I cleaned like crazy, I cleaned everything and anything...I was like a demented Doris Day.

From the moment I awoke this morning at 5:30 am until about 15 minutes ago I was a woman possessed.

I vacuumed, I scrubbed, I mopped, I wiped down surfaces, I washed couch cushions......I even attacked Mt Koziwashko. True, I was worried about tackling such a beast. There is always the possibility that I will be swallowed alive, but with sheer manpower (admittedly I bribed the children with sweets to help me) we overcame the monstrosity.

When Hubby returned from work I am quite sure he had wondered what on earth had happened to his little, lazy wifey. He was greeted by the smells of cleaning products and the sight of my rear end in the air while I scrubbed the floor...which he probably quite liked to be honest.

I dare any rodent of any description to set their filthy little paws in my abode now. If any of them so much place a whisker anywhere near this house they will hopefully die from the toxic fumes radiating from within (sorry children) or else they will die of starvation from the lack of crumbs in my carpet.

Tonight I gave myself a mental high-five, I danced a happy dance while alone (can you believe it...bliss) in the shower...sorry Hubby you probably would have quite liked that too......Tonight I'm happy that I had such a productive day. Let's just hope that it all doesn't become completely unravelled tomorrow!


  1. You're awesome everyday Lene! Oh, and it will unravel! LOL

    Anne xx

  2. It always unravels...but I LOVE those productive days! They are so hard to achieve with little people running around, but every once in a while we do and we have a right to high-five and dance! lol coincidentally, I was channeling June Cleaver just yesterday (see blog post) :)

  3. Very impressive. Can you send some of that motivation here, please?

  4. I have days like this occasionally too.
    I think that it's easier to keep clean once you've done a MASSIVE clean.
    The easiest way for me to keep the house clean is for my kids to not be in it ;)

  5. Well, it has well and truly unravelled today...damn and blast! Toys are everywhere, Mt Koziwashko has started to reclaim it's dominance and Miss 2 spilt milk on the clean couch this morning....I guess it was good while it lasted!

  6. Yay!! Congrats. Although the problem I have every time I have fits of cleanliness myself - is that I don't want the kids to touch anything, or eat anything haha! I'm thinking about placing the dining table outside to save me from my broom. Or perhaps putting the children outside would be a better idea ;-)
