nirvana.. or close to it

As I type, we are a picture of domestic bliss. One boy is sweeping. The other is following with a mop. If I can just keep this up for the next 18 years I (and any future daughters-in-law) will be laughing.

The realistic chances of it lasting for much more than the next 5 minutes are close to zero but I'm enjoying the dream.

So whilst I have 5 minutes, I'm going to add a link for the Best of British Mummy Bloggers Carnival which publishes the best posts from British Mummys every two weeks. This week it includes me (small cheers and a bit of a jig performed from a seated position). And then I'm going to go and read the other blogs (more cheers, more jigs and a quick glance over my shoulder to make sure that the mopping is still going strong, ah yes, they are now tackling behind the sofa, I'm training them well).

I love the sweeping and mopping. If you were in London you could hire them out for cleaning.

Mine has taken to putting her toys back in their boxes. She thinks it is a game. I think it is the most impressive thing she has done since her first step and would favour the tidy gene over any other almost any day of the week.
