What Do You Do When You're Sick Of The Boring And Mundane Chores...?

You turn it into a game of course! I did two loads of laundry today and needed to take them in... Beth was pestering me to let her do some painting ... and seriously, she'd literally spent half of today painting or gluing or doing some kind of messy craft and I was a bit over it... so to distract her, I asked her to help me put some clothes in the laundry basket for me... which then turned into her doing repeated shuttle runs between the clothes horse and the laundry basket... I unpegged the clothes from the lines, and draped them over the clothes horse, she retrieved then and put them in the basket. She had a lot of fun... and burnt some energy... and I was happy that the laundry got taken in (although it took 10 times as long as if I'd just done it myself!)... Still, it was a nice way to spend half an hour this afternoon...
