Hi working mums!
I am an old hand at CoM but new to this community. I thought this would be the perfect place for the advice I'm looking for...
How do you work, spend time with your child, time with husband, run errands, have some small resemblence of a social life and do whatever else AND find time to keep a clean house????
I have discovered over the past few months that the only thing that seems to help a bit is to do a little bit each day. For example I haven't cleaned the entire bathroom for months - I clean the shower tiles one day, the screens another, the basin another etc. I have also found that if I run over the shower screens every other day then it keeps the bathroom LOOKING clean for longer. I have also started sweeping and mopping every couple of days so that I only ever have to run over it quickly and it takes 15 minutes instead of 2 hours. But, the problem with this way is that if I miss a couple of days it all goes to hell and the place turns into a dump pretty quick. BTW - it would not be helpful for you to suggest that my husband help out, that isn't going to happen so lets not go there LOL :)
Has anyone mastered the art of working and keeping house? Please share!
