Happy Australia Day to my fellows Aussies, and anyone else who wants to join in the celebrations!
So what am I doing to celebrate this fine day? Catching up on housework. Normally, I like to get out and about on public holidays (just like everyone else), but the state of the house has been getting me down since I got back from holidays. Bub is 3.5 months old now and the gradual decline of our standard of living since her arrival has finally hit breaking point.
Having hubby home to entertain the small folk is just what I needed to hit housework hard. Mt Wash-iuszko was conquered (I was going to call it Mt Washmore, but thought I’d go with an Aussie theme – three loads of washing done and folded away), clean sheets on all the beds, fresh towels in the bathrooms, upstairs mopped, kids’ bathroom cleaned and a bit of dusting done downstairs, plus general tidying as I go. I’m exhausted but happy that I’m back on track with the housework. Now just have to settle into a routine to stay on top of things.
Hubby is now doing his gardening chores. The plan is to head out and do something fun on the weekend. I’m going to enjoy it that much more without all that housework hanging over my head.
Do you ever use public holidays to catch up on housework? How did you celebrate Australia Day?
