32 weeks - cleaning bug!

I think i freaked my husband out the other night. While he lovingly sat and typed up a transcript of an interview for me, I started tidying up the big surprises there, I do occasionally clean my kitchen ;)

But it didn't stop at loading the dishwasher, or hand washing the large dishes that didn't fit. It didn't stop at sweeping the floor, or wiping down the table. The bleach came out, and every surface of bench and sink got scrubbed!

Even when the clock ticked passed 10pm, I still thought it necessary to thoroughly clean the windows, and even take down the curtains to wash them! AND after 11pm, I just had to mop the floor!

I might have preluded this post with an explanation of how women in my family handle labour... we wash dishes, we mop floors, we make kids lunches, we fold washing. All the housework from the week, and all the spring cleaning for the year gets done in those few hours of early labour!

See why he was worrying?!

Its ok though. It was only a spot of early nesting... the real deal is still to come....I wonder what i might find to clean then?!


  1. I'm sure there'd be lots of people happy to volunteer their houses for your early labouring!
