I know that mess is an occupational hazard of having a toddler and a baby but I am so fed up of our house being a tip! Someone suggested that we get a cleaner.
This is something hubby has been thinking of for a while and something I’ve only just started considering. So as with anything else here’s a list of pros and cons.
- House would be tidier
- Free up spare time to spend with the girls
- Takes the pressure off by getting rid of the “I need to clean” feeling
- Costs money which is currently sparse!
- Stranger in my house makes me nervous
- Will people think I’m lazy?
I think the biggest reason I’ve said no to this idea is because I have serious trust issues leaving someone alone in my house. The only person I really trust alone in my house is my Mam. And even if she went snooping I don’t think I’d mind!
I’m starting to come around to the idea though after recent experiences of people turning up out of the blue to see MissMostyn. Thankfully when my boss turned up he rang 10mins beforehand which gave me just enough time to do a quick tidy up! The only thing I was very aware of was the fact that we have dog hair everywhere! And the day he turned up I hadn’t had time to hoover! I was just hoping that his suit hadn’t attracted too much dog hair!
That’s the main thing that bothers me is the dogs. Dog hair is everywhere – all the time! They live in the kitchen and Gemma (our Beagle) still can’t manage a “dry” night. So every morning I wake up to pee! And sometimes to dog poo as well! It’s bloody disgusting! No matter what we try she just can’t manage to keep it in. So every morning the kitchen floor is mopped but I still feel it’s not clean enough. I would love a cleaner to give our floor a thorough clean.
If we do decide to go for a cleaner I wouldn’t ask them to do the laundry – I don’t mind doing the laundry. Something quite enjoyable about getting clean laundry out of the wash and hanging it on the line.
So what do you think? Is it wrong to get a cleaner?
