lisapinke Thanks for all your comments on my last post. I'm feeling a bit more motivated this morning!! So tea & list making, only it's a list of not only the things I HAVE to do but also a list of the things I WANT to do, bit of a compromise but hopefully it works. Happy Saturday everyone!! 2w
  •   daphnerosaflowers Completely the same!! Painting my nails is on my wish list too, good luck with those fun jobs!! 2w
  •   nathan_cox25 Good morning hope you have a good day 2w
  •   lisapinke You too @nathan_cox25 xx 2w
  •   clarebear1209 I'm ok thank you my lovely. A bit of an emo mess at the moment....I'm blaming hormones!! 20 weeks now. Madness! How are you xxxx 2w
  •   heathlou Admittedly that looks more productive than my suggestion...xx 2w
  •   lisapinke You are allowed to be a mess, take advantage of it lol. 20 weeks already?! Wow! Are you finding out the sex or going for a surprise? All good here, trying to find the work/school/home balance, not easy!! @clarebear1209 xxx 2w
  •   lisapinke I still like your suggestion @heathlou !! Xx 2w
  •   clarebear1209 Thank you!! That's what I like to hear! It's all just very new and I'm an emo wreck! I think if we can find out we will, but if we can't then it's meant to be a surprise!! If you find an answer to the balance question can you let me know too please xxx 2w

lisapinke Treated myself to some flowers to hopefully motivate myself to sort the house out. I'm really struggling to find the motivation to make my house clean, tidy & pretty as everyone else just messes it up!! Any tips lovely people of IG? I know I will feel great when it's done but it's getting it done that's the problem! 2w
  •   lisapinke Love those ideas @alicej_t , we need more storage in this house!! Boxes would be a great answer, thanks!xx 2w
  •   jumbleandjelly Writing a list is a good idea but if you write down clean bedroom (forexample) it can still feel overwhelming. Try breaking it down into lots of different smaller jobs.which csn be tackled one st a time and ticked off. Nothing like ticking of a list to get you.motivated. I joined brocante home a while ago and over the last year it gas helped me form a regular housekeeping/housework Rota. Good.luck. X 2w
  •   lisapinke I think that is part of the problem @manicsundays , I want to do the whole house all at once & just end up failing. Tackling one area at a time makes much more sense!!xx 2w
  •   lisapinke Lol @theparrs , it's that bad that I look forward to going to work to get away from it!!xx 2w
  •   lisapinke Lists are the best @gillian_talesfromahappyhouse , I've just written one for today.xx 2w
  •   lisapinke Thank you @jumbleandjelly xx 2w
  •   cupcakejojo That is exactly how I feel. It seems a pointless task as everyone else just doesn't give a f**k and I get upset my mojo has naffed off completely and is rather sleep hugs xxxx 2w
  •   lisapinke Hugs right back to you @cupcakejojo , it drives me mad at how no one here seems to care, I think they think the bloody fairies do everything!!xxx 2w

lisapinke I might have gone on a small shopping spree in the new @cathkidston_ltd store in Milton Keynes today!! Lovely store but it seems my Stanley timer doesn't want to work so will have to go back. I think having a CK store so close to my work is going to be an issue 2w
  •   nullsie I am drooling 2w
  •   zoesknittingbag I thought my Stanley timer was broken but you have to turn it until it won't turn anymore then move the minutes to the correct time you need. 2w
  •   lisapinke Thank you @zoesknittingbag will give that a try!!xx 2w
  •   bet567 Ooooo didn't know there was a cath kidston in Milton Keynes ?!! I'm only 20 minutes away and MK is my town centre!!! 2w
  •   lisapinke It only opened this week @bet567 , it's a lovely shop! You can blame me for any purchases lol! It's my town centre too.xx 2w
  •   bet567 Right know where I'm going this afternoon ! Where do you live then? I'm in Flitwick. 2w
  •   lisapinke I'm about a 5 min drive from the centre of MK @bet567 . Enjoy your shopping, don't forget to show us what you brought!!xx 2w
  •   bet567 Found the shop and it's very nice but didn't buy anything apart from it bring my birthday today and I got very spoilt I also had my teenage daughters with me who kepted saying 'noooo mum' every time I looked at anything longer than a few seconds , I shall go back on my own soon !!! 2w

lisapinke Finally something crafty!! This is my Ireland blanket in progress. Started it on the ferry there & managed to find the time to make 30 squares whilst I was there. Haven't planned on how big it's going to be yet, going to continue making squares till I run out of the colours & decide what to do from there!! 2w
