I need to have a rant before I explode and go out for some cigs.
I'm going away tomorrow for a couple of nights with the kids - a treat with the money I've saved.
My 9 year old son has been packed and ready to go for 2 days - great, no problem there.
My 12 year old daughter is another story. I'm constantly asking/nagging/telling her to keep her room tidy so she can find things. Her gran even pays her £5 a week to encourage her to keep it tidy, not that it helps and she's only had her money once. It has got to the point where you can't see the carpet, clean and dirty clothes are all over the floor/surfaces. She's now asking me where her clothes are as she can't find the ones she wants to take away and expects me to start washing the dirty clothes that I just picked up after literally crawling round on my hands and knees to find!
Disorganised isn't the word and I'm at the end of my tether. :mad::mad:
This has just been the final straw today after having shit thrown at me from every angle.
