I have a friend who describes her own housekeeping skills as "it looks like there has been a struggle". When visiting if you want to sit down you have to move something, her kitchen worktops are covered with dishes waiting to be put in the dishwasher "when I get round to it". I have never made comment because she is a good friend and we get on well.
Now I don't claim to be a great housekeeper but my kitchen worktops are clear and clean, my sitting room is tidy - although on busy days you wouldn't have to look too hard to find dust
Yesterday my friend dropped in for coffee and during our conversation asked if I had thought about getting a cleaner "to help you out"!
My reaction was to stare at her, laugh and say no - how would other GNs have reacted?
