Last Sunday's ideal:
I worked an extra half day this week and it has destroyed what little control I have over the house. Am I the only one who is only just barely managing to do all the things I have to do, let alone get ready for that big holiday that's just around the corner? Don't get me wrong, I adore Christmas, but right now I feel like inhaling three bars of chocolates and half a bottle of Gordons.
Sorry, I must go, the washing machine is beeping at me .... arghhhhhhhhh!
