that's the conclusion i have arrived at for why my house is constantly 'a work in progress'.
i was invited in to my neighbours' house yesterday after knocking to borrow something and i almost dropped down at how clean the entire place was. everything was in it's place, no clutter whatsoever. just spotless. then later visited my friend and was once again struck with a massive pang of jealousy at how perfect her home is. neither of these two have children or pets and both have partners.
so i have decided that it is my children, pets and lack of partner that is to blame for the state of my hovel home. it's not my fault at all. i'm happy with this conclusion. case closed.
It was a real eye opener for my little sister when she stayed for a while at how much cleaning and tidying was done to little effect! When the Dc are grown up and moved out you will have loads of time to have an immaculate house. Unless you get more dogs. etc
Well it is my plan, I am not allowed a dog yet, although I am always looking out for breeds, I may like when I can, and so far I have three breeds in mind.... I am currently having to settle for two cats and three guinea pigs
You know there is something when you aren't planning any more dc (providing this pg goes well) but are planning your dogs!
