If I could justify it, I'd pay a cleaner with money from my new job (but, I obviously can't, because I'm saving up for that holiday).
Anyway ... here's a couple of questions for you, my friends in blog land, to answer for me:
1. Do those of you who spend many hours a day doing housework, really enjoy doing it?
2. Would those of you who have very neat houses find coming to my less-than-perfect house stressful? Would you be quietly thinking to yourself, 'gee, if only she spent a bit less time on her blog, and more time on this house...'?
Just curious (and you can be anonymous - I won't make fun of you).
