So here i am about to start cleaning the oven so its cleab for xmas. I'm already regretting puttting it off for so long. It looks grim. This is the worst chore for me because it gets the whole kitchen filthy in the process.

So how are we on the housework front right now. Just for fun, when did you last?

Clean your oven?

Clean the oven....about 3 months ago I reckon (minging I know!!). I've hinted for DH to do it by 'gifting' him a box of oven pride the other week grin
DH did the others yesterday!

I've done all of them today except clean the oven . I don't really do a deep clean , just clean as I go sort of thing . Most of my dusting gets done when I'm on the phone .
