At the moment putting washing away is right up there.

I've got piles to do and I DON'T WANT TO!

Ironing. Have let it build up so much that DH has agreed to an ironing lady. Yeah!

I loathe putting washing away too. And ironing. And getting it out of the tumble dryer and pairing up all the socks.

Laundry related stuff really.

in the manner of The Grinch "LOATHE entirely".

hate washing the milk cartons, tuna tins, coffee and jam jars etc etc.

hate them stacking up on the side until one of us cracks and takes them outside.

hate standing in the windtrap where they're kept and stamping on the cartons to make them flat and then the eye watering smell of the carrier bag holding the empty wine bottles <pure smelly wino>.

ironging - puting away.

so i dont do either - this means that clothes get piled into a crner until i shout at dh ( unfairly - tough shit)

Cloudhopper Wed 28-Feb-07 19:13:52

Tidying up toys. I just hate it - such a pointless waste of time when they all come out again the next day.

Groundhog day of toy removal.

Hope you don't mind me joining in either, but cleaning the bathroom is the worst. Don't mind ironing, and I now pay someone else to clean the oven every year, otherwise that would be the worst. When I can't see through the glass at what's cooking any more I know it is time to give them a call.

How much does an oven clean cost? Mine stinks every time I put it on.

KTeePee Wed 28-Feb-07 19:34:17

Definitely oven cleaning on the basis that it is the thing I put off the most....

DarrellRivers Wed 28-Feb-07 20:23:37
