I am Shiny Window Mum

Today, I cleaned the glass on the doors in my kitchen.

I have been looking at the fingerprints and handprints and food smudges and what-the-feck-else-I-do-not-know-smudges since the LAST time I washed them. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

“The last time I washed them” is a bit vague. It varies depending on who I am talking to: If I know you well, I won’t even excuse them, because you won’t even notice them, but you know yourself, there will always be those people who arrive or pop in or visit, to whom you feel compelled to lie about your cleaning.

“Would you BELIEVE I only washed those windows LAST weekend? Can’t keep them clean with these two rascals… hardeehardeehar”, you quaffle with extra hugh pitch in your voice, while you ignore the Him’s raised eyebrows because he knows that they POSSIBLY haven’t been WIPED in 3 months, never mind cleaned! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

It’s like confessions…”Bless me Mrs for I have sinned. It’s been 3 months since my last confession.” (Cue fires in hell sizzling in excitement that you’ve just LIED to the Priest, IN CONFESSION. ๐Ÿ˜‚)

So yes, today.

I DID clean the fecking glass AND THEN, I left my two minions eating their frozen frubes in front of Upsy Crazy and Macka Facka and scooted to my bedroom to leave a basket of clothes on the floor (where they shall rest and mature for up to 3 weeks…it’s the only way you know?) ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

Approximately 36 seconds later, I returned to this little shitster๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡, caught white handed clattering the fecking glass with the end of her Frube… I’m going to go ahead and think positively that she OBVIOUSLY saw me cleaning them earlier and so was imitating her Mary-of-the-poppins-esque Mammy Bear.

This theory has been further verified by the fact that she had ALREADY “cleaned” the Tellybox too… So here we are now, with the glass having not been cleaned in months, and now suddenly cleaned 3 times in one fecking day!

Wee monster this doll… ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡

How was your day? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I am Switching-around-the-furniture Mum

Today was a very productive day.
We spent the afternoon moving furniture around and rearranging rooms! ๐Ÿ˜†

I can’t tell you the joy this gives me. It makes me happy when The Him is home and actually gets to USE those muscles ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ชhe works so hard on at the Jim. (Yes, I refer to our gym as a person.๐Ÿ‘ค He is after all a member of the fricken family.)

The Him with the muscles however is not so keen on my biannual moving of the furniture. ๐Ÿ˜
He doesn’t GET that it makes S-Mumming much easier when there’s a certain amount of organisation and order in our very messy home.

He agreed to move the furniture today on condition that I don’t rearrange the kitchen (again.)
All this did was put that idea into my head and onto my to-do list for tomorrow. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
I’ll take pleasure reminding him it was his idea when he’s swearing tomorrow night because he can’t find the black pepper.๐Ÿ˜‚

Anyway, the BEST thing about the rearranging of the furniture was the moving of a double bed into Mini-Me’s bedroom.
S-Mum is being very clever and pre-empting such future events as sleepovers and “I need Mummy” nights of fever or whatever.ย  Instead of my arse hanging out the side of her tiny bed, I shall simply lie beside her. Clever mammy. ๐Ÿ˜—

But he BESTEST THING about the double bed is how ABSOLUTELY TINY my lanky, skinny 4 year old looks tonight as she sleeps in the huge bed.ย  She’s so small and tootsy and it’s a lovely feeling to see her so teeny, rather than looking at how big she’s getting and wishing time would stop.
Silly maybe.
But it makes me happy. ๐Ÿ˜‡
And after the mayhem of rearranging the rooms, The Him took us out for dinner. (I think it was to stop me from moving the coffee machine into the bedroom really.)
Mini-Me ate everything in front of her.
So did I. ๐Ÿฐ
Princess smiled at everyone and battered our Bloke.ย  (He loved this really.)

And then we had ice-cream.
So all is now right with the world.
I’m off to pour a glass of grapes.
I do need my 5 a day you know. Must keep the strength up for tomorrow’s kitchen rearranging!
Goodnight S-Folks xx
