I'll go first!

Replenishing my baby changing bag at the end of the day- ie. filling with new nappies, wipes, topping up my formula powder pot, fresh Muslin cloth & bib all ready for the next day

Tidying the living room, plumping pillows etc before I go to bed so it's nice and tidy in the morning

This one's got to be popular- emptying the washing basket 🧺 --for all of five minutes!!
Turning down the beds and shutting the curtains making the bedrooms all cosy for night time

I know I know- I'm very sad! Would love to hear other people's! ....

I like pegging out!

sleepstealer Wed 10-Apr-19 17:54:36

I love pegging washing out too.

AfterSchoolWorry Wed 10-Apr-19 17:56:54

I hate it all. All of it! blush

You're weird OP, no one likes emptying the washing basket, worst job ever grin

(I do love running the spray mop over the kitchen floor after the dog has run through on a wet, muddy day though - satisfying smile)

Hoovering. Nothing nice looking at a freshly hovered carpet whilst it stays like that for about 5 minutes.

Pegging washing out , seeing it on the line and when all dry and folded I get a sense of achievement.
I also get a bit of a thrill when my kitchen all clean .

*nothing like

MissPollyHadADolly19 Wed 10-Apr-19 17:58:27

Putting zoflora in the sink with boiling water before bed so when I wake up the house smells beautiful!

YouTheCat Wed 10-Apr-19 17:58:56

I agree with AfterSchoolWorry. Hate it with a passion.

Slicedpineapple Wed 10-Apr-19 17:59:42

And cleaning my loo!!!

DuggeesWoggle Wed 10-Apr-19 18:01:30

I'm with AfterSchool. It's all dull as shit. Genuinely trying to think of a single daily task that fills me with joy or thrills and nope can't think of anything.

They don't call them chores for nothing!

I like vacuuming. And I love buying new fabric conditioner and smelling them all before I pick one.

I wouldn’t say any of them thrill me confused Mild satisfaction maybe, but it really depends on mood and energy levels...

Bumble1830 Wed 10-Apr-19 18:12:08

Has to be hoovering and hanging the washing out 😁
I think I love hoovering because its the last thing to do after I've cleaned every where

SickOfThePig Wed 10-Apr-19 18:13:17

May be something random like hoovering up spilt flour.
Otherwise, nothing. At all.
However, I will happily go outside and spend hours doing horse related drudgery.

LetsDialDownTheIanPaisley Wed 10-Apr-19 18:22:41

Turning the dishwasher on. Heaven

BeerandBiscuits Wed 10-Apr-19 18:23:09

Nothing about housework gives me a thrill, bores me to tears. I do as little as I can get away with.
Love gardening though and would spend all day digging, weeding and generally pottering about if I could.

FriarTuck Wed 10-Apr-19 18:24:11

I do love running the spray mop over the kitchen floor
Is it wrong that I got a little thrill over the thought of a spray mop? blush (heads off to Amazon to look up spray mops)

HeathRobinson Wed 10-Apr-19 18:24:11

Absolutely none.

Plump82 Wed 10-Apr-19 18:25:26

Shining my bathroom taps!!

SuddenlyISee Wed 10-Apr-19 18:27:17

@MissPollyHadADolly19 does that really work? How much Zoflora/water?

CalamityJune Wed 10-Apr-19 18:33:03

Cleaning the sinks and making them all sparkly

twocats335 Wed 10-Apr-19 18:40:15

I'm trying the zoflora one - thanks Missdolly!

I do get a sense of satisfaction when all the breakfast stuff is cleared away and the kitchen is nice and tidy before we all leave for work/school.

PrivateIsles Wed 10-Apr-19 18:40:20

I once hoovered up some Weetabix crumbs from the back of a cupboard with one of those little cordless Hoovers. That was quite satisfying. But the rest of it, dull as dishwater and in no way thrilling!!

I like cooking, but only things you can choose nice ingredients for and take your time over, not treadmill, rushed midweek meals...
