Sometimes I'm quick on the uptake. Sometimes not.
The husband and I share the cooking in our house. I'm on Monday through to Thursday and he takes over on Friday night. As we both enjoy cooking, we like this arrangement.
What we don't share is the cleaning. He works full-time, while I work part-time from home and don't mind housework (odd, I know). What I've just woken up to is that I've got the timing all wrong. For years.
I'd clean the kitchen on Fridays so it was all sparkly for the weekend. Lent an end-of-the-week celebratory feel to the house. Downside is The Husband is not the neatest of cooks so I'd get the kitchen back on Monday morning looking like it'd been used as a small abattoir over the weekend.
Now I clean the kitchen early in the week. Most times. Being a creature of habit I forgot again this week.
