Bloggy Honesty

Soooo... it's been more than a week. I wish I could say that I've been super busy getting many things done here at Muriel but alas, that has not been the case!
Yep, just been slothing around

Let's rewind to last week, shall we? Here's the list that I proposed for our long weekend (that is, the weekend before last!):
  • Clean the kitchen It was so clean it sparkled! I've tried to keep it that clean since.
  • Clean the bathroom Done!
  • Vacuum/ mop the floors PK did this one all on his own :)
  • Tidy the other rooms as required Didn't really make a dent in the other rooms unfortunately!
  • Laundry We did two loads!
  • Dishes We ran the dishwasher twice and hand-washed a batch (of pots) too!
  • Finish painting the skirting boards in the great room Finally done!
  • Final coat of gloss on the garage entry door/ paint external face as well -We only managed one coat on the other side, hopefully we'll get that finished someday...
  • Paint walls and trim in the hallway -I only started this one today!
  • Purchase mosaics for above the kitchen sink We changed our minds about which ones we wanted, which means waiting until they are in stock. Doh!
  • Use those mosaics to tile the strip above the kitchen sink Er... nope.
  • Paint the front door (inside and out) The inside is started! The outside? Not yet.
  • Finally plant winter vegetables in the patch Didn't go anywhere near the vegie patch. Still haven't!
  • Take a stroll along the beach I don't think we did this, but I did suggest it!
  • Hang some frames in the great room PK put some up, but there are many more to go up before I show you! I'm thinking a gallery wall is in the making...
  • Make some curtains for the sliding door I still have the sewing machine from Mum's house, but no sewing happened
  • Visit some second hand stores/ antique shops Didn't happen!
  • Catch up with friends and family Yay! We saw both of our families and even had some friends over for dinner!! Hurrah for being social!
  • Take a road trip (to Lancelin maybe?) We did the opposite- we stayed in one night instead :)
So basically, we got all of the boring stuff out of the way and then spent the rest of the long weekend slothing! But really, isn't that what weekends should really be all about?

And since the long weekend? Well, let's just say the slothing continued after the holiday ended. ;)
