    Default Re: What everyday tasks do you struggle with?

    Packing sufficiently when i take DS anywhere. I am always the sheepish mum in the parent's room scabbing wipes and nappies off more organised parents, or whose child is always inadequately dressed despite the 'cool change' forecast

    Default What everyday tasks do you struggle with?

    Definitely folding - I wash and dry but mostly that's the end of it. The basket then ends up on the floor of the wardrobe to rifle through.

    Me two! I hate vacuuming too. So now we have new rules. No shoes and food on carpeted areas so I don't have to do that daily.

    Going a day without injuring myself. I'm constantly covered in bruises, scratches and cuts and most of the time I have no idea what they're from as hurting myself is so common that is doesn't even register when I do it (unless it's a bad one). Kicking my toes, running into the lounge/table/bed/cot/bench, dropping things onto myself, falling over, walking into the wall, trying to walk through the gate before it's actually open etc.

    Massive klutz and at 27 I've given up hope that I may grow out of it.

    this is me too. I hate that its a mess, but i hate cleaning it more!

    Also vacuuming - I just don't like it. I can sweep every day, but the hassle of the vacuum....

    Default Re: What everyday tasks do you struggle with?

    Keeping up with school things ie: events, ice block days (50c) wet play days (pack wet play clothes) parent teacher interviews, etc etc etc..

    This was my first 'school age child year' as DS is in prep, and I was amazed at how much I have to remember! I have a calender in my ph but for some reason I work so much better with the little handbook calenders which I didnt have this year! Think I need to invest in one!!

    Cleaning washing and car Im finally very good at after buying a whiteboard and writing up a routine to follow dialy and on Sundays!
