I got a “fail” on the Susie Homemaker test.
As I surveyed my immaculately clean house last week, I turned to my husband and said “Even though I didn’t clean it, it makes me feel like a better (house)wife.”
I may also have uttered the words, “the house doesn’t clean itself you know! I had to pick up the phone.”
Does that make any sense to you because seriously, it seems perfectly sensible to me!!
This beautiful home that I am currently enjoying is courtesy of my darling sister and her boyfriend who arranged for a cleaner to come and restore some of my sanity.
I myself am also a bit in the present giving mode at the moment and the sheer joy I felt upon entering a clean home got me thinking about giving my husband a similar gift – for outside the home. Our garden is entirely the domain of my husband because truth be told, I am an even worse gardener than I am susie homemaker!
We have had very little success in the past with gardeners – they are either overpriced or unreliable – but I am determined that there must be someone out there who can do what we need them to do at the time we agree upon, without charging an arm an a leg. Surely it can be done!
The question is where are they?
Like most things these days it turns out there’s an app for it! Dum de dum, thank you yellow pages for getting it together with the year 2013 and developing a pretty cool app! Using it I have been able to come up with a handful of options and have been able to save them to my favourites and SMS the details to myself for ease of reference (if I find one I like then the app will let me save the details straight into my phone – VERY handy). Now, if I can just find the time to call them up and get a quote! Is there an app for that somewhere??
So while I still have no gardener (yet) at least I know where I can find one…and now I am off to search for “mobile beauticians” because frankly, that sounds awesome!
If you could choose between a gardener, cleaner, housekeeper or cook which would it be??
