I'm looking around our house at all the toys and clutter. Ms2 is at daycare for 5.5 hours today. I've done 2 loads of laundry, tidied up the overflowing paperwork, unpacked the online shop, wiped down counters and vacuumed. Half an hour doing research into study ideas. Failed attempt at making bread (new aldi bread maker broke). I pick her up in 30mins so will have to wait to sort the laundry. I haven't done anything in the other rooms but even the kitchen / living is still not tidy. What's the point? We go on holidays to cabins and we haven't got all this stuff or space and it's great because we have time to relax and play together. I've got outdoor cushions that have been sat on a handful of times as we never have any time to relax at home as there are never ending jobs. It's so dull and pointless.
Why do we live in these big suburban houses? We should be living in tiny little apartments with great communal spaces!!?
Unfortunately with the crazy stamp duty and fees etc dp will not even entertain the idea of moving so I'm stuck. Can't go on strike as I'm the one here all the time sitting in the mess. We have to eat. I can't leave food crumbs as then we'll be sharing with ants. There must be a better way!!!!
