Whistle Blower

MOTH's on notice today that the building site he's currently working on upstairs has failed inspection. I'm so over unnecessary junk everywhere, & if I trip over one more extension cord that's snaking its way up the stairs, then doing a couple of lazy laps along the hallway before making its way into the bathroom I'll SCREAM!!! So I'll be using this Public Holiday Monday not only to celebrate our Gracious Majesty's birthday, but also to enact the big clean-up not only for workplace safety, but my sanity.

  1. I too just HATE it when the boys get 'messy' with their projects, especially the indoor projects. I think that they feel entitled to create a mess since they are being 'productive'; I selfishly enjoy their pain when they can't find their tools amongst the clutter. Enjoy your tidy space once again Millie!

  2. If you make everyone entering the house wear a hard hat and steel capped boots, he might get the picture! Good luck with the clean up, then enjoy the rest of your day!

  3. I can only imagine what you are going through.I guess the end result will have made it all worthwhile.Cant wait for that post!Hope the week brings you smiles.

  4. Good luck Millie - hope MOTH gets the hint!!!

  5. Oh dear - I'm sensing that MOTH might indeed be taking heed. I feel as if I'm on notice! Good luck with the clean up Millie. xx

  6. I understand...when my husband is working on a project there is 'stuff' everywhere! He is leaving today for a 2 week fishing trip! He works hard and certainly deserves this- and I'm looking forward to a clean house...all to myself! Enjoy your day Millie-end it with a glass of good red!

  7. Sounds to me like he would be best to 'head for the hills' for a few days. I think Millie needs a break :)

    Extension cords aside...I hope you have a wonderful stress free week Millie..all great ladies deserve at least that:)

  8. What is it with men and mess....forget, 'Mad Men' ....what about, 'Messy Men'....xv

  9. Today must have been the day!!! I couldn't walk into our workshop without stumbling over something, so I got into it - Grrrrrrrrr!!!!! I must say it now looks fantastic and you can even see and walk on the floor - hoorah! I think it just got too overwhelming for someone...

  10. Oh oh,
    MOTH's in for it.
    He is probably thinking that he will use the holiday for the specific purpose of tidying up, Mill's. You wait. Your home will be spic and span before the day is out.
    I have faith in MOTH !! XXXX

  11. Hope your day is progressing nicely and that you are now in the
    "I can relax mode."

  12. this is why i stay single ... he he
    i just yell at myself


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
For who can bear to feel himself forgotten?
