This is partly because I had no idea what else to write for V, and partly because it is true. I hate cleaning. I really hate it. Even more though, I hate having a dirty, untidy house. My only option is to stop whining and get on with it. I don’t like dusting – it makes me sneeze; I don’t like washing dishes or mopping floors and tidying with a 4 year-old in the house is like walking in quicksand. Vacuuming, though I quite like. There’s something quite therapeutic about sucking up all that dirt- and trust me, with this particular four year-old there is a lot of dirt. A quick run around with the hoover can make a big difference. I vacuum everything – in between the cushions on the settee, curtains, I even cleaned the kid’s chalk board with the hoover the other day.
Plus, when the kid was a tiny, colicky baby the sound of the hoover was the only thing that would get him to settle.
