Do you ever do household chores in the dark?

Apologies for sounding like a loon, but sometimes I wash up/wipe up in the dark to avoid seeing the enormity of the task. I find it way more relaxing, although the downside is I don't get to see the outcome.

You're stark raving bonkers, in a loveable-non-threatening kind of way! grin

I think you are as mad as a box of frogs.

You'd get on well with my DH, who is always reaching into the room and turning the light off on me as I quietly put away laundry.

How can you tell if the dishes are even clean?

Switch th light on when you're finished then!

I can see your point, but I don't do it.

I have been known to hide half the wahing up in the oven so it doesn't look so forbidding (ie on Chistmas Night!)

But how can you see what you are doing - which bits to wipe IYSWIM?

TBGP, did you used to be called ThatGreatBigGermanPerson, or have I always misread your name?

cadelaide Thu 14-Aug-08 22:48:42

Oh, of course, you're you.

And of course you've never been a great big german person.

Ah, the labyrinth that is MN.

I enjoy sewing in the dark, but have to unpick it all again in the morning. grin
