In between the cleaning....

I managed to snap this quick picture for today's HS:MS prompt FOLD. After 2 weeks of having 3 males around the house and under my feet everyday the house was like a bomb site. It was that bad I only managed to do downstairs which means upstairs will have to be tackled tomorrow along with re-tidying the rooms I did today now that they have been in them again.


With all things considered I would have preferred them all to stay at home for a few more weeks until this sickness bug has finished doing the rounds. The boys are under strict instructions to wash their hands at every opportunity now they are back at school. I really do seem to be getting quite a stomach bug phobia going on here. Strange really as I don't mind having them that much but they can cause some serious problems for Pete who, in turn, isn't worried about getting it at all. Maybe I should just learn to chill.
I started my diet proper today and have done very well even with a chocolate orange sat on my desk calling out to me at every given opportunity. I have been strong, ignored it and eaten kiwi, apple, pear, melon and pineapple instead. Not sure I will be so good tomorrow so it is going to get sent to work with Pete.

Really love the redesign, and a new name too! The fold is great, it amazes me what you can do with an everyday object.

Good luck with the bugs, everyone seems to be getting it, so fingers crossed for the boys not getting it and passing it to Pete.

oh I am so with you with the 3 males. I still have the dog and monster child but the other 3 are back at work and school. My palace is mine again!
