How long has the excuse worked for you?

    Something I have been thinking about recently,...when your baby is first born you are told to forget the housework and concentrate on your baby. But when does this excuse 'run out'? I'm still trying to get back into the swing of keeping on top of housework etc as well as looking after myself and Damien.

    How are you all doing?

    I am still using the excuse and will for a while yet I reckon.

    I do the housework etc but things are not like they were before, but with a bambino I can't expect them to be.

    Keep using the excuse until they leave home ;)

    LOL cheers glad it's not just me! I was feeling lazy because I'm not able to be as tidy as I like.

    I am a bit uptight about not being able to do much around the house because I know I tend to be lazy and untidy anyway. However, I asked OH if he thought I was trying it on a bit still asking him to do stuff, and he said no, he wanted me to keep taking it easy and when I felt I could do more to ease back into it. So that's what I'm doing - he still does all the heavy lifting. I'm lucky in that OH is self employed so he's at home with me most of the time, even if he's in the home office and I'm in the rest of the house. Naomi and I get coffee breaks :D

    Cuddles in the middle of the day are another perk :oops: :D :shock:

    LOL I have a basic 2up 2down house with no hidy holes except the store cupboard - Damien's room is currently a tip instead! I get really bugged for not doing housework, but I'm so knackered I end up just sitting here for half the day :shock:

    I always have the good intention, just don't do it!

    If visitors start wiping dust off the chairs before they sit down, you know you have a problem :wink: Until then, sod it.

    Think I still have my nesting hormones, so I'm still going stupid cleaning out cupboards, dusting cornices, polishing the front door and other daft jobs which I've NEVER done before :oops:

    Well to be honest with Amy being the age she is ALL the toys come out at the same time and if i try and tidy up she just messes up so during the day my house is like a jumble sale- i tidy up when she goes to bed. i have to hoover ever other day cos of all Amy's crumbs and squashed biscuit etc dusting is erm........... once a fortnight!! lol

    The only place i keep on top of is the bathroom especially the toilet (men don't aim very well!!)

    I don't do it unless i have to- Don't worry about it, if people don't like it then they don't come round simple as that :D
