I'm drowning in dirty stuff...

...and not in a good way!

No, I'm drowning in dirty washing, dirty dishes, dirty kitchen floors (well only one, so technically I couldn't possibly drown in that...).

This is all due to the stupidy stupid boiler breaking on Valentine's Day. Luckily we only had one sleepless night of getting up every two hours to empty the washing up bowl that was situated most precariously underneath said boiler to catch the drippety drip... Actually, my wonderful, gorgeous hubs did the getting up, but I was still rudely awakened every time he rose to do his duty.

So, I've been unable to do the dishes (must make room for that dishwasher I've had in the garage for nine months) without boiling the kettle three times for every bowl full, hubs has almost run out of undies and socks (and he gets grumpy if the underwear fairy isn't doing her job!) and my hands have gone on strike owing to the fact that I can only wash them in (and I kid you not) freezing cold water several times a day...

Ours is not a harmonious household of late!

But fear not, for a lovely fella from Gas Angel Heating has exited my abode, leaving me with a brand new, shiny (at least I think it is, can't see the blessed thing) and stupidly expensive new part which has stopped the dripping - hoozah, hoorah and jubilate!

Now, of course, I no longer have any excuse to leave the pile of washing, ignore the dirty dishes and sit at my computer all day - gah!

Time to press on with my wifely duties of the domestic kind... who has time to get pregnant these days!?

ack! what a nightmare, not bad enough that it stops you do anything for days and it all piles up but then you have to attack those huge piles!

And don't those wifely duties just never end! Know the feeling about the boiler, ours broke down just before Christmas.

My house is dirty full stop!

Luckily more times than not I get the kids to do the dishes! Pays to have the older ones first. LOL!

Ha! Terrible when things like that happen. Glad you got it fixed now, er, but not glad you have to deal with the piles!

It seems to take so much longer to get through the piles when you are playing catch up. I do the 'too tired, too lazy' routine but its not worth it really, not that I want a genuine excuse either. We had no water recently after the bad snow, nightmare!! Enjoy getting back to normal:) Jen.

Thanks everyone... I'm two loads of laundry down now and no more room to dry stuff so I have to stop - bummer! Still, more to do tomorrow, which will lead to the inevitable pile of ironing - argh!

Hey ho, I'll soon be clean again!

I don't know how you've managed for so long, I am all out of sorts when something like that is broken here at my house. Glad to hear things are getting back to normal for you now!
