As many regular readers will know, I’m a busy working Mummy and I struggle to juggle all the plates at the same time. Throughout the working week, I’ll try and tidy up as I move throughout the house, popping a load of washing in every other night and before bed I’ll always make sure the kitchen is tidy and the dishwasher is on.
The majority of the housework in our home gets done quickly and without thinking. I’ll always make sure the floors are mostly uncluttered, bins are regularly emptied and baby wipes are a god send. I’ll do the quick household chores regularly but the big stuff like vacuuming the stairs and wiping down the skirting boards and cleaning the windows get scheduled for a free evening or weekend. It’s just the way it’s always been. I’d love to say my hubby shares my stress levels for getting the housework done but he doesn’t at all.
When it comes to cleaning, there are two types of people; those who clean and tidy up and those who don’t.
Hassle.com, the easiest way to book domestic cleaning services online, have illustrated that there are two types of people. Those that are clean and tidy and those who aren’t preferring to live in chaos and clutter rather than have clean surfaces and neat piles.
One of my biggest bugbears is in the bathroom. Every time I go in, there’s always a towel on the floor (it’s not going to dry out if it’s screwed up on the floor) and you can bet your life that if the toilet roll is at an end, the cardboard tube will be on the toilet roll holder awaiting it’s exchange. It’s so frustrating and I’m sure my hubby and Olly do it on purpose to see how long it takes me to get wound up!
To be fair, my hubby isn’t that bad. He does his fair share around the house and if there’s someone important coming over he’ll clean the bathroom thoroughly (true story!) but I would love to be able to come home from work after a busy day and find out that the cleaner has been round and has helped out. I may have joked on numerous occasions about getting a cleaner but it’s quickly becoming a serious consideration. It would be rather lovely to have someone come in and do the bigger cleaning jobs that I don’t get time for, although I’d worry I would clean up before they come in, ha!
