Is, I’m sure, everyone’s favourite thing. Mine is finally clean and tidy for the first time since we moved I think (which is rather nice). I have resigned myself however, to the fact that I am never going to be an excellent housekeeper – for starters, I have much more interesting things I want to do. I also have too much clutter (apparently not compatible with a good housekeeper). When there are books on every available surface (hey, you never know where you’ll be hit with the urge to read something) and children in the house, I sincerely believe that there is little point in being a fanatic about the tidyness of the house. I do believe in cleanliness, that’s different. But tidyness needs a purpose (like visitors!).
As soon as I can afford it though, I’m getting a house cleaner. Floors and bathrooms, that’s all I’m asking for. The rest I’m fine with, but I hate floors and bathrooms.
