What? Housework?

This is a photo of the party I did on Friday. Kids ages ranged from 6 to 12 and it was fun! I would rather do this than work in the corporate environment any day!

Yep it is official! As from 1 May (nogal Workers Day) I am officially the maid in the house. After having a full time domestic worker for the past 3 years, I now have to do it all myself. It is seriously going to cramp my social life! The only day this week that I will be home for the whole day is Thursday, and I am supposed to prepare for the weekend parties. But anyway, we will have to see how it goes. I already told the kids that they are responsible for cleaning their bedrooms and caravan (in Michael's case). So far I am finding just doing the washing a full time job!

We didn't have a very interesting weekend at all. Spent a lot of time organising my house the way I want it, sorting out cupboards etc. I can now see how half the maid really worked. We went to Rugby on Saturday and that at least was fun, although Colin actually got tickets to "entertain" one of his clients. The client didn't talk business at all, so that was fine. When Colin's section at work has a turn to get tickets they usually invite the clients with their wives, with the result that I also get to go.

That was it - boring, boring, boring!

Please let us know how Michael is doing now.
Glad you are getting the house organised the way you want it.
It is eye opening though when you see what should have been done and what you thought you were paying for... See you tomoro.
