My DH and I are pretty rubbish at keeping the house tidy and clean. We seem to go round in circles. I'm on my second mat leave but when I go back to work in 5 weeks we won't be able to employ a cleaner (we did this the last time I worked).
I'm beginning to panic I'll get very stressed about how untidy the house is and become very shouty on a Saturday morning. The reason why we decided to get a cleaner when I went back to work after DD1.
This time, two kids, both working full-time, no cleaner (childcare costs are too high).
Any tips to keep our life in order so we can minimise stress and enjoy family weekends.
Agree with hairy fairy. And remember if you are out of the house all day it will not get too untidy. Also teach the children at an early age to tidy toys as they go along, I know a lot easier said than done
