i am the same - but I don't do any ------- I do the other stuf like the computer work and the banking - there is only the two of us now so its my dearest wife's job - as well as the chooks and veggies weeding - I give the technical help and the welding and mechanics - she gets to use the tools - lucky girl like the spade and digging fork and rack and things - I am not mechanically minded with the house hold things like mops and buckets and vacuum cleaners and for our first mothers day before we had kids I bought a dishwasher and the iron always just doesn't iron for me - I learnt to wear a jumper in summer or no shirt at all and now after Cohens I can do that again !!!! and as I say why wash a bathroom when its a wet area anyway - I just rub my foot about in the shampoo water and that gets rid of the lumpy bits of left over soap from the last bit of the old cake and it goes down the plug hole then !!!! and being a perfect aim and good shot with a rifle .....same applies for the toilet.

Better go and get dear wife to cook lunch .........!!!!!

Andy,
Sounds like you do housework like me!!
I do a bit of a turbo clean every now and again, so I am glad I only have a small house & only me to not mess it up!

I do a bit of yelling when I visit my sister's house with her messy, don't pick up after themselves, don't put dishes in the sink etc 3 little pigs!

Always seem to be standing at her sink doing dishes (hate dishes!) because when you want one of 20 drinks a day, you possibly couldn't use the same cup again!

Lucky me I don't even own an iron!

Definately doing the dishes! Which is a real pain in the behind when you have to cook 2 times a day lol. I'm not much of an ironer either, I do my best to buy clothes that dont need ironing lol, but dishes are definately my pet hate.

I really like doing the dishes. I know that's weird, but I'd rather clean every item in my kitchen than iron my work uniform for the day.

*Bump*
The bathroom is the one I hate the most - followed by ironing - i try to get to it before it ends up like Mt Everest...And next is cooking, but the good thing is, at least I get to choose what we eat...and that's a plus on Cohens!
