1 Thing

Who here likes housework?

Ok, so true confession time. I detest it.

Seriously, the only reason I do anything is because I hate wearing shoes inside…..

But some jobs are worse than others. For example, I would prefer to clean the toilet than vacuum. Why? Well because the job is never really done.

I turn around and the gremlins have put half a dozen tiny specs of fluff where I have just been. Or now that I have a new wizz bang vacuum (no that does NOT make the job any better Mr Sales Man), I pack it up after the equivalent of a 60 minute all sweaty and grumpy only to find that SOMEHOW I have missed that whole triangle of floor over there in the lounge.

AND vacuuming needs to be done sooooo often because we have a four year old who thinks eating is a contact sport- and the whole house is the field on which this is done.

In all seriousness though, as parents we all need to vacuum.
There will be one job that you put off and put off and make 1001 excuses not to do.

So what is yours? Because, (and you know you saw this coming) your job this fortnight is to tackle it. Head on.
Me? It’s getting my four year old to eat a wider variety of vegetables.

The little guy has a list of exactly five totally eclectic vegetables that he will eat without complaining and quite frankly, I am bored out of my brain with carrot, peas, edamame, cucumber and sorrel for every single meal.

So here it is. I’m going to try to expand him out to another two veggies in the next fortnight.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way! Even if I have to disguise them in puree.

Now over to you.

What are you putting off doing in your house? What are you going to do about it THIS FORTNIGHT. Tell us all and make yourself accountable to make that one positive change!
