a day in the life of June

I really do not enjoy Fridays. I spend most of the day fielding the question, "What are we doing today?" to which I reply, "We're doing it."

Unfortunately, that answer does not exactly encourage enthusiasm.

And I must admit, the thought of cleaning my house all the way through does not instill much enthusiasm in me either. But what keeps me going is the feeling of achievement that evening, when at the end of the day I can light some candles and have a bubble bath all the while saying to myself, "The kids are in bed, all my jobs are done for the week, and I'm in a completely clean house."

Yep, it sure is worth it.

And here's something I recommend hightly. One of the benefits of writing it all down: Well, Fridays never seem to be the most productive of days for me. And yet, when it's all written down, a fair bit of constructive activity actually happens on a Friday. As well as some recreational activity (for the kids) too (including choosing what tshirt Mummy is going to wear that day).

Who would have thought?


  1. Well done Kymmie... writing it down may well be the key to a successful clean up! Must try that :o)
    Very cute T... Little Miss Sunshine looks ready for play. How could you not be inspired by wearing that funky outfit xo

  2. I'd say you did a lot! Wow! I love the T - very cute!

  3. Cute t shirt. Good for you ending the week in bubbles x

  4. Not sure what I hit but the anonymous is me x

  5. I'm seeing a trend in your June posts, washing clothes, folding clothes, etc etc.
    This task is a thorn in my side, every time I think I've tackled it, there's more, glad I'm not the only one.

  6. thank you for your beautiful comments off to have a read of your blog while I sip my cup of tea before school pick up time!! nice to 'meet' you XO

  7. Friday's my big clean-up day. I get to the evening and really appreciate sitting with a BIG glass of wine in my clean house. I don't put times on my list as I always underestimate how long it's going to take. Love to scratch through them with a thick, black pen!

  8. oh you are a little miss sunshine aren't you!! my daughter would LOVE that you have put your t-shirt over your long sleeve (as she has to do it too!). and since i;ve been reading your posts all week, i reckon you get aLOT done! writing it down does help that sense of achievement!


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
