    I recently moved out of home and have had a total shock at how hard housework can be!! My mum always cleaned up after me and nagged that I was messy, I just thought she was moaning for the sake of it but I now realize how easily my mess spreads now that I’m tidying up after myself! You just dont notice when somebody else is doing it for you. Its like the program wife swap, the men are always so much more grateful when they get their wives back for all the work they do to keep a tidy home
