Now I'm nervous, this could be goes...

Jobs that are always done on time and are kept up to date (baring illness, injury or other unforseen events).

How does yours look?

I am sure I must have missed some. If so, they are jobs I am obviously oblivious to.


  1. Hahhah! Luckily, the yellow ones - I can't read them without my I still think of you as a domestic godddess!

  2. LOL my rainbow would change colours - depending on what mood I'm in. Ha funny :)

  3. LOL - there needs to be a colour for Uni semesters - because then practically nothing happens! I spend my uni holidays catching up on all of the housework that I couldn't do while I was at uni. It takes weeks to whip the house back into shape (a malformed and untidy shape, but a shape nonetheless). Then classes start and it's all downhill from there! Maybe we could just colour that black - for dark, dark days. Hehehe


Just one little comment will make my day.
