You may be interested at how R and I divide up the household tasks. No? Never mind. Read on if you will.
Coooking: R. I cook once in a blue moon and then only special things. If he is fed up with cooking, he has only to say so and we go out or get take away.
Cleaning up after cooking: Me mostly. Although if R has had a day off and I have worked, as well as cooking he usually cleans up too.
Washing: My department. I wash, dry and fold. R washes his own bedding though.
Ironing: We each do our own.
Dusting, bathroom cleaning and hard floor cleaning: R, however I do clean my own shower.
Window, mirror and picture cleaning: Me, I have a sharp eye for a smear.
Skirting boards and the rare cobweb: Me
Flowers and indoor plants: R
Outdoor plants: Me
Balcony, barbeque and gas bottle replacement, and exterior air con cleaning: Me
Light fitting cleaning, internal air con cleaning, lamp cleaning and lamp bulb replacement, range hood and dishwasher and washing machine cleaning: Me
Stove cleaning: Me
Fridge cleaning: R
Tech machine maintenance: Me
Finances: Now, entirely me, but it wasn't always so. Things changed and the role naturally fell to me.
Tattslotto: Same numbers for three decades have not been productive. R's job.
Shopping: R, although I help if I am not working on Saturday and I sometimes buy bits and pieces in between.
It works out fairly evenly and it is not something we have ever really discussed. Each task fell to the one who the task suited, had the time at the right time of the day or who did it best.
About the only thing we disagree on is who answers the phone, and we can do a right back and forth on that. In the meantime the phone rings out.
There was one time though about the oven. R said it needed cleaning. I said, I only just did it not long ago. He said, you are doubting what I am saying? I wasn't really, and it did need cleaning, but it wasn't long since I had cleaned the oven. But of course you never complain about anything that happens in the cooking process if you want the cooking to continue.
Late edit: I left out the loading and unloading the dishwasher. There are no rules. We both do it, as suits.
