Rewards system!.... UPDATE!


Hey if it works for the kids perhaps I should start doing it for myself!

So this is the plan....

If I get a fair chunk of chores done today I can go to the seaside tomorrow!

wish me luck!

Well as its nearly the end of the day and the children will be off to bed very soon...
I have a headache but I think that's down to the heavy weather and atmospherics than the amount of housework I accomplished, our black rubbish bins were emptied this morning and I have cleared almost enough to fill it... its stunning how much rubbish you can keep "just in case" it might come in handy... i have a stack of magazines ready for recycling... and I cleared the washing up but unfortunately refilled it with tonight's tea things... hey ho such is life.. lol

The lounge is definitely suffering from that syndrome where it looks ten times worse before its done but thankfully for me Mr P said " I would not stand in your way whether you have done the house or not" so with that in mind I am off on the train to ........

Dawlish Warren


its going to cost me £18.80 and take 1 and a half hours and I will have to change at Exeter.... I am off on an adventure and i am so excited!



I will tell you all how I fared on my little big adventure on Saturday...

now wheres my camera I had better pack my rucksack... and what crochet shall I take!

;D

The image you used in this post makes me smile. I hope that I enjoy life as much as these two ladies seem to in their older years. :-) Nice to "meet" you. I came from Snippety Gibbet's blog.

Wow, you go girl. Your clearing up skills are very impressive. I think rewarding yourself with a trip is inspiring. I'm not very close to the sea but i think the train to Brighton takes about two hours. Hmmmm, now there's an idea!

Have a wonderfull time at the seaside.

This is such a good idea for you Alex! I read a book once that said, every now and then you should take yourself out on a date, go and do something with yourself, and give yourself the special care that you give to others. So I am really chuffed that you are doing this! I wll be tuning in again soon to find out how you have gone on! :)))) Suzie xxx
