Grateful for Friday night housework

Late Spring cleaning
So it's Saturday. Squee! My first day off in two full weeks. Well, I kind of get a day off, just because I planned it that way.

Friday night saw me cleaning like a demon - clean bathroom, clean kitchen, clean clothes... After attending uni lectures last weekend, followed by a full working week including study in the evenings, I was NOT going to spend my Saturday doing housework. So I did it Friday night instead. And then I collapsed on the lounge with my fave easy dinner and a glass of wine, or two.

This morning I've got a few hours to work on my very last uni assignment (see... I 'kind of' get the day off) and then the weekend begins!

Lunch and an afternoon movie with my homegirls ( aka my former work collegues whom I miss so much!), an evening with the {other} man in my life and Mother's Day coffee dates tomorrow.  That is what weekends are for.

Do you spend Friday nights doing housework, just to get it over with?

Linking up with Maxabella over at Kidspot Village Voices for 52 Weeks of Grateful... 


  1. If I was motivated, I would probably do housework on Fridays nights, but alas, most Friday nights see me collapsing in the chair. Good on you for being organised and motivated.

  2. No never!!!!! I always just collapse on a Friday night and do as little as possible, knowing there's such a full day on Saturdays. I am trying to get my teens to do the housework at the weekend. Not working brilliantly well, but still persevering with it.

    You sound so busy!! I am exhausted just reading it... work and study and family... you will so deserve that nice day on Sunday!!

  3. Yes, definitely. Except my 'big day' is Thursdayand I will kill myself all day just so I have an easier day on Friday and the weekend. It's always worth it, I think. Like a reset button. x

  4. I do anything necessary to ensure a day of every now and then, but usually that day off ends up running kids around everywhere :) I love that little window desk in your photo above. What a gorgeous spot to sit and write! xx
