Putting clothes away, I'll iron, but they each have to put their ironing away... which means with a housefull of men that it usually lies around the house in piles until I get a sad on... at which point, I am apparently being unreasonable.... and 'its just sooooo unfair, I have to do absolutely everything'... can be heard. I was told that men grow up eventually, OH is now 52, and he's still not sure what he wants to be when he grows up.....Chaos, panic, disorder, my work here is done!

Please tell me FPD - that you're not still doing their ironing for them now that they have all departed the nest?!

Hate all housework years of watching my Mummy spending her whole day cleaning made me vow I'd never be that woman.
My house isn't dirty but is lived in, who cares if the dust has settled and if the stairs are full of dog hair?
I do like gardening.
WR I used a steam steriliser easiest thing in the world saved all that pishing about rinsing bottles, teats etc.Mimi: "I'm a fat f*ck. I'm a f*cking fat f*cker".

It's cleaning the bathroom for me (especially when the OH is home) and under furniture and behind the sofa - where I hide all my clutter and the spiders take up residence *shudder*Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough.

I'm lucky that I have a cleaner cos I hate all forms of it.
I hate ironing, mowing the weed patch and the poo patrol (for 3 squirts they sure make a lot of poo).When the going gets tough - drink wine!!

Boots - I vowed the sterilisation stops at Rosebud's first birthday... Three and a half months to go!
Fish tank, yes. Absolutely."Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own special laws."

Haha yes Heli I tried that and spraying diluted orange essential oil around neither worked. I did however manage to get my hands on a plug in electric deterrent device, it supposedly gives off sonic waves and puts something through the wiring in the walls. That seems to have got rid of the giant house spiders I was plagued with and has massively reduced but not completely put off the small-medium ones. (side note - it got rid of the woodlice in the bathroom too, bonus) I'm learning to live with the little ones and am in the seemingly never ending process of decluttering to get rid of places for them to hide. I'm getting better but the odd fast runner skittery ones still cause me to emit a strange squeaky noise while attempting to reach higher ground. I try not to react when the OH is home as he finds it hysterical and then I have to sit through the half hour lecture about how it's much more scared of me, which I quite frankly refuse to believeDistance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold.

Everything at the moment thanks to this bloody flu
In general I don't really mind housework, although ironing (OH's uniform in particular) and cleaning the bathroom do get on my nerves.....especially the toilet. Ew.The only thing neccessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing ~ Edmund Burke
