The Bub Hub forum needs upgrading and will be down for four hours in the morning!! But there is no need for you to panic! And there is certainly no need to do any housework!!
I've thought of a few things you could do without resorting to that ...
1. Like The Bub Hub on Facebook
We are still around ... in fact we are extra busy because of this upgrade thingy (can you tell I'm not the technical one in the office?). Chat to us or among yourselves on our Facebook page.
2. Do an early Spring clean!
Bor-ring!! Cleaning the house is something you do (or avoid doing) every day so why should you do it today? We've been over this already ...
But ... what I'm suggesting is a type of cleaning that you would actually LIKE to do but never get around to ... I'd love to sort through my clothes. I'd get a bag to give to a charity as well as hopefully rediscover some long lost gems! Hopefully I'd make enough room to justify a shopping trip for some new clothes as well!!
3. Get in touch with an IRL friend
Does your grandmother live in another town? Why don't you sit down and write her a letter and send her some recent photos! It will be just like the olden days! And she'd love it!!
Or, if you're like me, there is one or two long emails from a friend in your inbox that you just haven't gotten around to replying to! It feels like you have to write an equally long email to do justice to their original email. Now you have the time to ...
4. Pamper yourself!
If you're pregnant or a mum already you are probably sleep-deprived! Why not have a nap!
I'd love to have a nice long hot bath. Although now I'm preggers, I'm not supposed to have super hot baths and once I got in there I'm not sure I'd be able to get out!! But don't let that stop the rest of you!
Make a body scrub from kitchen ingredients: Try this one ... Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 4 tablespoons of sugar. If you've got some essential oils like lavender or something similar add that too! It will make you smell like a day spa, not a biscuit!
5. Play with the kids!
Build a fort. Drape an old sheet over the kitchen table or the couches and have morning tea in the 'house'!
Find a cool park nearby and take a picnic down there.
Make play dough: Mix 2 cups plain flour and 1 cup salt. Add 1 tablespoon of cooking oil, 1/2 to 1 cup cold water and 2 drops of food colouring. Combine until it is play dough-ey! Add more flour if it is too watery!
6. Do the thing you're supposed to be doing!!
Are you moving house this weekend but haven't started packing ? Maybe do that then ;) Are you normally on Bub Hub while you're working. Maybe do some work (just for today though ... )
7. Hire a DVD!
Then write a review for it on the Bub Hub film reviews page
