Today I have done something I NEVER would have thought I would say. It is just not in my nature and I know you are all now dying to know what I have done.
This afternoon, I spent the afternoon gutting, cleaning, hoovering, steaming my Daughters bedroom, ok I know, I have done that many times before but the shock is that I enjoyed it.
Ok I did not enjoy the clearing all the rubbish (well what I call rubbish) and giving it a thorough clean, that really is not in my nature, but I had entertainment while I was doing it.
I even moved her room around a bit ,as well, and she has so much more space in there now.
So why did I enjoy it? As you all know my Daughter is not well and she is having a bad day today and is really down with the pain. So in I go all geared up with cloths and sprays, hoover and steamer and we chatted, and joked and when she went quiet I would get her chatting again.
I found an impossible puzzle ball, that her Nanny brought her for christmas and we sat there taking turns in trying to do it, it is so frustrating you have a plastic ball with a maze inside and you have to get the ball from one side to the other. I also found her bop it game and we played that also taking it in turns.
I am going to sit with her more often and play these as they will help with her concentration, she was having fun and laughing, which is something that has been missing lately. Although you could see her getting drained. So she we would have a break and I would do a bit more.
Yes it took me a lot longer to clean her room, but it was worth it.
We also sorted her tv out so she can now see it better, which I am now regretting but she is happy and that is all that matters.
Tomorrow I might do my mountain of ironing, as I do that upstairs and can talk to her or keep having a break and we can have another challenge on the puzzle or bop it.
Don’t worry though, you will never hear me mention these words again 🙂
