Sod’s Law

 |  Misc, Parenting

Pretty much every Friday, Karl’s mum pops in to see us on her way back from work. Because Karl and I both work all week, we tend to ‘save up’ housework for the weekend. This means that when she gets here, it’s normally an absolute tip… unwashed cups and plates stacked on the side, cat toys all over the place, clothes that need washing.

I do have some dignity and pride, and so today I left my mum’s a bit earlier to get back and do a bit of a tidy up before Karl’s mum got here. (To try and convince her that we’re not both pigs.) Done the washing up, tidied up snotty tissues and picked up the cat stuff.

Guess who’s away this weekend and thus wasn’t coming ’round anyway?

    That is always how it works out, especially when you go out of your way to get said task done as fast as possible. Although, I agree with Ben… At least it's done, and now you can sit around watching soap operas with a bowl of ice cream resting on your belly :P

    I just moved into my own place for the first time so I have been keeping up with the housework (what little there is – it's a small place) every day so far. I'm sure that won't last. We don't get much company besides a couple of my friends once in a while.

    LOL that's so me… only I have far less warning. My dad/mom usually just call me with "I'll be there in 5, you're home, right?".

    Eh, at least it's clean now? ;)

    Annoying but look on the bright side, now it's all done you won't have to worry about it over the weekend. Relax, spend time together and have fun :)

    Ohh! That sucks. I hate when that happens. It happened to me so many times before. One of my mom or dad's friends say they are coming over and the house is a mess. So, we clean up like crazy for hours, until we get a phone call an hour before they come, saying they can't come because of whatever reason. Well, on the bright side, at least you can enjoy your weekend in peace :)

    Spend the weekend in bed stroking the cats & pampering yourself. *hush Karl you already had "YOUR" fun*

    Oh BTW, when you have a moment pop over to my site & let me know if you like any of the baby designs I have shown on the current post, please. If you don't that is fine, I will just go looking again, lol. Thanks.
