    I hate housework full stop!

    I don't mind Ironing,I do put the kids ironed clothes away otherwise they get hung up on the floor!

    My worst job is cleaning the cooker,it doesn't help that I actually hate the damn thing and want a new one and second is the bathroom and toilet,it always looks like a hurricane has been through it after Liz has been in there. :eek:

    Thats an easy one.....doing the dishes!!! We had a dishwasher at our old house which I loved but had no room for it at new house so back to the old fashioned way lol.

    I dont mind everything else, ironing is OK once I get into it!! When I do, I normally try to get them out the washing machine as quickly as poss so they dont crease too much ;)

    Ah now i learnt a tip from aggie and kim about putting on a duvet cover. You turn the cover inside out,grab the 2 corners from inside,grap the duvet and shake it down.pmsl not easy to explain but its so much easier.:D:D

    That duvet thing is a tad tricky if you're quite small and trying to do a king size duvet, as I know to my cost. I regularly get lost in folds of bedding!!

    By the time you have finished all the huffing and puffing of doing the bedding the only thing you are fit for is bed itself, either that or a very stiff drink!

    I love ironing,its one of those jobs you can just do with your mind totally switched off while watching the soaps lol!
