Getting on top of the housework is just seemingly impossible at the moment. We gave up the cleaner when the missus left work to start maternity leave and we are still on one and a half incomes so don't really want to start employing other people again yet. And yet it is just driving me mad!! Almost the whole of the weekend has been taken up with cleaning, tidying and scrubbing and the place still looks like a tip! It doesn't help having a one year old about I guess who is far more efficient at making mess than I am at cleaning it up. Please tell me your place is worse!
