Monday – Housework Day – Bleurgh!!

 I hate housework! You make the beds, you do the dishes and six months later you have to start all over again.

                                                                                                                             Joan Rivers

You and me both Joan!  I usually put ‘housework avoidance’ down as one of my interests.

I remember when my girls were at primary school and they came home one day clutching  a sheet of paper with their handprints on and this little poem alongside emphasising the need to play and have fun and make the most of your children and not keep worrying about everything being clean and tidy.  Sentimental?  Yes.  Something I took to my heart and have used as an excuse ever since?  Hell yes! 

The fact they are now 15 and 17 needn’t concern us. 

Now, where’s the number of that cleaning agency?

    Aw how sweet.
    I am envious. I must listen to the voices you see, and tidy.
    OCD type of thing.

    I want to be you!

    I always avoided housework whenever possible (every day), but always felt badf about it, so I am going to put your poem to use too now! Its very sweet 🙂

    So cute I have a couple of those handprints around and a couple extra pawprints and not all of them are neatly on paper. Good luck with the housecleaning
