Ok so last year I bought a white gloss dining table with a mirrored base it's lovely.!unfortunatley having kids I can't show it's glory off I put a table cloth on and every table cloth I buy they draw on it or rip it I ended up getting vinyl leatherette material which they draw on I've tried nail polish to remove not working but now it just looks akki the things is I'm always replacing it and telling them not to draw on my table cloth but they still do how do people stop this it's not just my table they've drawn on my walls in past I've told them off but it keeps happening And it's costing money I've been through 3 high quality cloths since I bought this table to top it off one day my son stapled right through it leaving two little staples I can't get out unless I ripped it out or just tapped it into it is anyone else really house proud and struggled keeping on top of little things without it costing

As a child if I was to draw on anything other than paper the pens and crayons were took off me and I defo wouldn’t have had a stapler? (I was a very accident prone child 😂) tell them they can’t have the pens until they learn to use them properly

Haha it was my stapler he got hold of it lol

Use pink paste that should take it off or a magic rubber that you can buy from Poundland for a pound it does wonders

My table has acrylic nail stuff on it took the varnish off and I wasnt even my kid foaming we have the thick vinyl cover for when kids are painting or whatever crap but this friend didnt take notice of using and I wasnt in the room. I like a clean house too just a little ocd, my 14 yr old girl is a minger clothes towels crisp packets on the floor it take 5 seconds to tidy up and she hates me doing it but I wont have a dirty house. I've decorated my whole house this year during lock down I love it when its all new and done.

Same I hate mess it's hard being pregnant though cause I can't get what I want done hubby keeps telling me to sit down but things annoy me I really want to paint whole house again as it's griping me but I think he will go mad!my son usually helps paint and I give him pocket money .i go in my sons room and get rid of pots and pot noodle wrapper partner keeps saying I should leave it but it's the thought of that one room being messy my dad came round once it was messy and he mentioned I should go in I nearly died at the mess of leaving it so I try go in every other day I leave pots outside his room so he takes them down just so he realises mess I would take them to kitchen but hubby would tell me off.ive just had hubby bleach bathroom as don't want to risk using bleach being pregnant but I've bought zoflora cinnamon and a lovely ginger bread candle for bathroom and new bath mats .my house needs redoing in some places but hubby keeps explaining how we are locked down and shouldn't do it yet !❤️

Lol yep plates glasses just gross I go in every day I have too. I keep trying to pull the I’m pregnant card I can’t carry the washing basket but I’m only 14w there nothing stopping me doing anything atm and my kids don’t even know hopefully they’re abit nicer too me once they find out lol
