The Thing about Housework...
The thing about housework is that it never ends. Just lately I have been doing some extra jobs in the hope that when everything around me is kept tidy I will spend less time cleaning up and clearing up. So far it hasn’t worked, I’ve just been busier.
The thing about housework is that it is a vicious circle, I wash the floors and walk on them, in company with my husband and three cats. I wash the clothes and wear them after which they need washing again. I cook the dinner and we eat it. Five hours later everyone is feeling hungry again. Nothing ever stays clean for long. Even the windows cease to sparkle after even a gentle sprinkling of rain.
The thing about housework is that a housewife can never retire unless she can pay someone else to do the job for her.
