A Dutiful Housewife?
Below is a list of household jobs (I can't say chores, it sounds American to me).
Using the different colours, highlight each one to show how it fits into your routine.
Now I'm nervous, this could be embarrassing...here goes...
Jobs that are always done on time and are kept up to date (baring illness, injury or other unforseen events).
Jobs that are done fairly regularly, ones that you usually manage to keep on top of.
Jobs that are done only when you can't bear looking at the mess or filfth any longer.
Jobs that are only done when friends are coming over.
Jobs that are only done when your mother or mother-in-law is visiting.
Jobs that are as good as never done, or only done if you are selling or moving house.
Folding/putting away laundry
Cleaning the ceiling
Cleaning windows/glass doors
Washing window sills
Preparing meals for the family
Cleaning kitchen benches/cupboard doors
Cleaning fridge inside and out
Cleaning the oven/microwave
Putting everything in its place
Cleaning under beds
Culling old clothes/toys/things
Well, that's as pretty as a rainbow!
But not too many blues and purples, oh dear.
How does yours look?
I am sure I must have missed some. If so, they are jobs I am obviously oblivious to.
