I don't seem to have any proper post material at the moment. I have no 49£ type opinions.
I was trying to come up with something, but all I have is where I'm at the moment.
My responsibilities are working from home, parenting, cleaning the house and cooking, in no particular order. And it's just too much for me. I can't summon the energy or organisational skills to do any of it properly - all the tasks seem to block out each other and I end up just avoiding the lot, sitting online all day and getting deeper and deeper in the mire.
No, no, people say, Jo, you should see my house - well, Ive seen your houses and you don't have rooms piled high with stuff so your children become lost in them, or a bedroom covered with dust and cobwebs and 90% of the families clothes. It's in dire straights, yet each day slips by without me doing anything about it.
I swear, I could happily just sit and read and write and eat porridge - perhaps I should grow a thorn forest around my house - oops, no, wait, there's one there already.
So what are the tricks? How do you housekeepers out there manage to motivate yourself? What should I do to change, or rather, become efficient.
This is really an Infantasia post but other than that, I've got nothin' for ya. I miss the 49£ posts, but as Milan says, it's hard to make the effort without any feedback or contributions.
What's going on? Should we all take an official holiday?
Speaking of which , that's the other think I've been thinking about - I would so so love to go to California and see my family - my beloved cousin is pregnant again and I still haven't seen her two year old! I'd be nice to go before my daughter starts school. Ideas on how I can get an extra 5 grand, please. I'm tempted to put a 'send Jo to California' paypal button on the blog. I wonder how far that would get me?
Right, that's yer lot. I'm not going to post again til there's at least six other personal posts up. Videos and links don't count.
