The Tidying Up Battle

There are two distinct roles post-bedtime routine in our house.
Jobs I have to do after putting kids to bed:
  • Wash and sterilise bottle
  • Make up morning feed
  • Fill and put dishwasher on
  • Clean kitchen sides down
  • Prepare lunch for the following day – especially if I’m at work.                                       

Jobs my husband has to do after putting kids to bed:
  • FIFA
There’s one job we both hate: tidying up whatever toys have escaped the playroom. In essence this simply means throwing the toys from the living room back into the conservatory (playroom), shutting the door and pretending the house is pristine.

Even the dog looks on bewildered as to why these toys are STILL HERE!!

But after the ball-ache of all those jobs (or FIFA – “it’s so tense!”) neither of us can be arsed, so it becomes a bit of a stand-off. A battle of ‘Who will fling this plastic crap into the next room first?’

It’s usually me.
