I’m a housewife? Ok, technically I’m not at all. I’m a stay at home mum trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. I’m pleased to say though, I have a whole new outlook on this expat life and I am more content with my lot now than I have ever been.
My husband and I (sans Little Miss) had a fantastic 10 day trip at the end of May, which included the wedding of some awesome friends, a visit to Buckingham Palace to have tea with the Queen, a catch up with some great friends and visiting with my family. Anyway, whilst we were gone my in-laws stayed with Little Miss in our apartment in Lyon.
We returned to our wonderful daughter after our trip and to a spotless house, my mother-in-law is ‘a little’ obsessed with cleaning, she’ll admit it herself. I loved how clean the place was! Now, I tried to keep it just the way it was when we returned but needless to say after a week it is back to looking like our own place again; just not quite up to the same standards. I mean, it’s not dirty, it’s a little messy, and very lived in….
My question for you is, how often do you all clean your house? Like, really clean your house?
I hoover and dust once a week, I clean/wash the floors about once every few weeks, (maybe less) I clean the bathrooms when I feel like they need cleaned and I very rarely clean the windows. I tidy the house to make it presentable every day and I feel like I do laundry every single minute of my life! I DO NOT IRON….EVER. (have I missed anything out??)
I will be honest and tell you that I hate cleaning, it’s not something that makes me feel relaxed or happy, though I do love it when the place is clean. I am not a typical housewife and when my husband married me he knew that. I cook every day, sometimes twice a day and I bake….thats about it.
Confession time ladies, yes, ladies, (my husband does not clean at all. ever. Does yours?) I’m really interested to know your responses to this one?
