the big clean

I freely admit that i'm a slob. I don't like to mop, i'm not a big fan of the dishes and i hate spring cleaning. The benefit to living at home is that you can let mum do most of that sort of stuff. Unfortunately, i don't live with my mother. I am the woman of the house, and thus, the duty falls to me to complete.

So today i bit the bullet and pulled everything out of the laundry room. I dismantled the dining room and began the horid chore of washing the floor. While the floor gets a fortnightly wash and a daily sweep, it rarely gets a proper scrub. Today it did. The water turned black as i got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed every inch of the floor.

Now it is all done. I have a shiny kitchen floor. And somehow i managed to do all this before i ate lunch. So now i'm trying to figure out how to get food without dirtying my beautiful floors.

sigh...maybe i should move my mum in here.

Why is it your job just because you are a woman? Surely you can get your hubby to do it for you. And get him to wear a french maid outfit too. That you can do because you are a woman.

Tis true, the man can do all these things...but i find the clean is done better when i do it...thus giving me more time between when it has to be done again.

Laziness is an art:P

but i like the outfit idea!:)
