cleanliness is next to godliness....

...because the more housework you do, the more exhausted you get, the less energy you have for anything vaguely sinful and the faster life will pass you by! Ironic, innit, that now having three rather nice looking recently decorated rooms, I find myself impelled to clean up every few minutes. When the house was more tatty, I reasoned that no amount of dusting and hoovering would improve the look of the place, ergo - hardly ever did any. I am turning into a bit of monster though, husband will be regretting the days when he moaned about my sluttishness - now his ephemera gets shifted into cupboards or neat piles out of site as soon as he turns his back. That'll teach him hehehe.

Thing is, once I've cleaned and tidied something, I expect it to stay that way, but you have to do it again the next week.

I know! One of the reasons I intend working until forcibly retired is to stave off full-time housewifery. I blame my mother, she used to get me to dust and hoover at weekends then went round after me doing it again because it didn't meet her standards,leaving me with the subconscious belief that I'm no good at it.
