This is.....what I do with a spare 10 mins.

Well, a spare ten minutes is a bit of a luxury these days...... There is always something I should be doing. That's the thing about being a stay at home Mum. There is always some washing or cleaning/tidying that can be done. It's not like you can leave the office......
The month of October is a busy one with lots of birthdays and I set myself the challenge of making presents for all the little ones. This coming Saturday is my SIL's baby shower so I have to finish off the things I am making for her new baby too so I am not above spending 10 mins sewing at the moment. (Every minute counts!) I am also wrapping the presents and making and writing in the cards too so that on the day all I have to do is pick up my ready made package and run out the door. None of the usual last minute run to the shops and wrap the present before running out the door!
But, when I do get a spare 10 this is what I usually do:
* read my Google reader and catch up on all my favorite blogs
* write my own blog entry
* empty or load the dishwasher
* have a cup of tea

Thanks to Hoppo Bumpo for this weeks thought provoking 'This is...' To find out next week's theme visit bugandpop.

Mmm, I like your style.. Gosh, I have a pile of presents that need to be posted - the baby ones are the worst, considering by the time the baby gets them they will be too big for what I have bought - so then back to the drawing board.. I need to get organised!!

I'm right there with you about there being something that you should always be doing around the house. You sound very organised on the present-front. I need to take a leaf out of your book!
