When does anyone do housework? I seem to spend all day trying to clean my house!

I mop and sweep whilst they nap at midday and again after they are in bed at night.
Just about to head to the gym (creche for my two) so the kids are drawing whilst I do a quick tidy up. Well once I get off bh I will.

I take DD to school, come home and tidy up a bit then rest, go to the gym, run errands or some small freelance work if I have any, then pick DD up.
I see doctors twice a week at the moment, one full day forcibly leaving the house with a friend for groceries, etc, and 5 hours of volunteer work at the school.
People think I'm luck to be a SAHM with a kid at school but I'm not well so most of the time I am so zonked out it's not funny. I wish it felt more leisurely spending the day resting...I can't wait to get back to bring busy, having loads of clients and a life again!

A typical day for us is... Wake up, put a load of washing on, we all eat breakfast, I do breakfast dishes, then hang washing out, shower and dress and we go out. Usually out the the door by 9am, otherwise they are destructive and naughty.
Different activities every day, but they are things like, swimming lessons for the girls, toddler time at the library, playgrounds, play centre, long lazy picnics in the park, or I take them to the pool. I try to balance my week doing some free activities, some paid.
I hate spending the morning at home, it is a recipe for disaster and a trashed house. We are normally home for lunch and then dd2 has an afternoon nap. I do the lunch dishes, bring my washing in fold and put away. And do some housework, bathroom one day, floors another, windows, that kind of thing. Dd1 will usually just help me with whatever I'm doing.
Afternoons we spend outside riding bikes, visiting friends baking or going for a walk or to a playground or something.
Then I cook dinner, eat, do dishes, then bath, stories bed routine.
Should add, mine are 3 1/2 and 1 1/2

Not sure if this is off topic and sorry if it is but what age did you all start doing activities ie library reading/play group etc my dd is 10months and we do nothing outside of home. I play with her a lot but we don't actually go out and do certain things. There will be times in home 3-4 days in a row and that doesn't include sick times. And if we do go out its usually to the shops or lunch that's about it...

I found the guilt was attached to comparing myself with other mums. When I stopped doing that and looked at what my baby preferred to do I was happy then. I have people telling me my two year old should be "past that stage" when it comes to afternoon sleeps. But he gets them along with his younger brother and he's all the better for it (and so am I!). And it's when I get my ''me" time to read, study or sleep.
I asked my mum what she did when I was that age. Did she go out. She said back then there weren't many places to go, the local park was littered with drunks and women in pubs were frowned upon, not that she ever went to the pub anyway. So she stayed at home and invented things for us to do.
