So two days into living together and made the first mistake! partner comes into the living room having just discovered I had done the dreaded washing up (an act of cleaning he despises!), he says 'we should really set up a rota for cleaning', My unfortunate instant reaction was 'that will create lots of arguments when who ever was meant to have washed up hasnt', so....and here comes my big mistake...before I could stop myself the words were out there...'nah we don't need a rota!! well just do it when we feel like it!' yes that's what i said! and where in the history of men does it say they will feel like doing the washing up! it doesn't! they don't! not ever!
Need less to say one month in and the beautiful shine that everything (including your partner) radiates has very much worn off and cleaning is no longer fun...except maybe when your partner catches you shaking your bum to music while hoovering, wearing rubber gloves and clothes that should never be seen out of the house, for them in this instance, cleaning time is alway fun!
