The housewifely duties

Today I washed down all skirting boards, vacuumed the tops of doors, architraves, edges of carpet along the skirting boards, pulled out furniture and vacuumed underneath.

The sweat was pouring off me, in spite of putting the air con on high, and along with a decent walk when R arrived home, I am feeling a bit stiff and my back is aching a bit because no one makes a long tube for vacuum cleaners, so tallish studs like me have to bend our backs too much.

The worst part of it, no one would notice any difference. Bah to housework. I want a cleaner. Perhaps Jah Teh may have some suggestion as to what he might look like?

  1. Don't ask Witchy. She'll suggest someone seventeen years old who spends all day in the gym and hoovers up in a thong.

    Hold on...I'm fighting fire with fire here, aren't I?

  3. You're feeling a bit stiff and you want a cleaner.

    (Tell us something we and your personal trainer, adviser and procurer, Jah Teh don't know!)

  8. If you can pierce through the bureaucratic rhetoric and claptrap you will see a monument commemorating the inane ticketing scheme that costs us taxpayers tons of money.

  11. That's debatable, Andrew. Unlike Metrosexuals, I couldn't give a toss about fashion (the most facultative notion ever), but I just care about cleanliness. Not all heterosexual men are "unhousewifely" and the Metrosexual term is a semantic jigsaw puzzle and is in no way scientific. lol

    By the way, my first comment was actually meant to be directed to your "Head banging on a wall" post. I just dislocated it.

  13. He would do very nicely thanks Cazzie. And no problem for him with a short vacuuming wand as he is not tall.

  14. I was being flippant Reuben, but I am pleased to hear that the crotch of your jeans is not hanging near your knees and you are not in a pretty pink V neck tee. I did pick up the misplaced comment, but I have learnt that more trouble can be had by trying to sort that out.
