Am I alone in doing as little house work as possible---usually only when we are expecting visitors? Toilets are obviously cleaned regularly, as are kitchen work surfaces /sinks and cooker. Regularly does mean when they need cleaning!!!
I just have far more interesting things to do with my life, as well as newly imposed Grandparent duties. Some of you may know why these duties are non negotiable .
Spotless is an aspiration here, accomplished once in a blue moon. It's rather like estate agent speak - one described my last house as 'immaculate' - I thought 'if only you knew' and hoped he would never encounter my 'stuff' lodged in the daughter's garage while he took the photos !!!
I'd like to do a lot less and spend more time on hobbies, but I have a husband who is very particular (probably has undiagnosed ADHD). He finds chores for me to do, as he doesn't believe in sitting around 'doing nothing' . Yesterday morning, I came downstairs to find the hoover waiting for me in the sitting room - a clear indication that he felt the carpet needed hoovering, lol! Fortunately, I don't mind housework once I get going.
