If for one week somebody came in and did a chore for you what would it be?

Mine would be somebody to put ALL the clean laundry away. It's neverending.

fussy I once was without my washing machine for 3 weeks. I was slightly traumatised. it was genuinely horrible. we do have 6 kids, baby was only 7 months old.

I couldn't function properly - but the silver lining was that in my rebellious hours of "If-I-can't-do-the-washing-&-can't -keep-up-I-might-as-well-do-fuck-all" I was fuffing about on the Internet and found Mumsnet.

so don't despair. something good will come out of it.wink

Washing up - how much longer will I have to wait to sort my kitchen out and go back to having a dishwasher again?

day four in Zombie land as baby DD is teething and has a virus. I'm so tired I want to cry, but I won't. I need to reserve my energy.

I'm so exhausted that I need a new word.

I'm Zombed.

I haven't had a full night sleep since DS1 was born almost 12 years ago, so my wish is a night nurse, on duty from 11pm till 7am so I can have a full night sleep.
every night

Sorting washing. Luckily dd does it whilst I sit and boss her about grin but not often enough only once a week it really needs to be 3 at least.

colditz sad so bad you had to tell us twice thanks

For me: cooking! Everything else I can do myself, most of it doesn't bother me. Sweeping and mopping is a necessary hasske, but laundry, ironing, cleaning the bathrom... nope, they don't phade me.

But, cooking, grrrrrrrrr hate it, hate it, hate it. It's just fuel. Chopped onions, peppers and garlic come frozen in bags, thanks. I make Christmas pudding but it bores the arse hairs off me, despite having a lovely friend who is my Christmas-pudding-cooking-buddy.

Picking things up off the floor.

I answered this question here about five years ago. Sadly, the answer hasn't changed.

Fix something! Everything is in varying states of decay, would be marvellous if week by week things started working again.

Proper deep clean of the carpets (with a washer thing). Its not so much the cleaning, as the moving of the furniture.

What is it with bathrooms, I wave a cloth at ours once in a blue moon and throw cleaner down the loo now and then.

It's the least troublesome room in the house.

Now if someone wants to clean my kitchen and mob the floor....

Clean the oven.

Put the bin bags out. I hate doing it

ironing if someone invented a machine with a big hole in the top that you throw a buddle of clothes in then they came out ironed and folded they be a millionaire

Laundry is obviously a big issue in most houses not just mine. DH seems to create as much washing as Dd1 and DD2hmm I of course create very little ahem

Just generally declutter and reorganise me!

Mintyy Sat 22-Jun-13 13:09:05

Clean the bathroom. Luckily, I have a wonderful person who does this and I always feel so grateful.

Lavenderloves Sat 22-Jun-13 13:05:16

Oh god oven i change my mind, its in need of a good clean.

Lavenderloves Sat 22-Jun-13 13:04:36

Bonzo, you need to starve him out cheeky monkey.

Floors, all 3000 square foot of them, never ending job.

FiftyshadesofYoni Sat 22-Jun-13 13:03:57

Locketjuice Sat 22-Jun-13 13:01:47

Wolfcub Sat 22-Jun-13 13:01:12

PipkinsPal Sat 22-Jun-13 13:00:58

Hoovering, mop the kitchen floor and clean the windows inside and out.

Feeding DS1. He's 3. Not fussy. But just won't feed himself. It's driving me crazy. 3 fucking years of feeding him.
