I do so want to...

be a slut!
Now before you jump to the wrong conclusion, I mean it in the not caring about tidiness way; sorry if I have got you here under false pretences.
I have always loved my home and homemaking, well until now when I have been tested by my ‘new’ ish seaside abode.  I gather things about me very similar to a hamster filling their cheeks with food, treasures to be enjoyed later. I arrange and rearrange them until I find their optimum resting place.
Some might call it clutter?  Trouble with all of this is dust. I don’t really like dusting or come to think of it hoovering, not to put too fine a point on it...
I’m top show, red hat and no drawers type of thing.
I sit and admire my artefacts and can hardly stir myself from the chair.
When I see how some people live in a total pickle, part of me admires their having ne’er a care.
The other part of me holds house- proud folk with a tad of disdain. This says a lot about me, you are free to draw your own conclusions here.  Don’t look now but I’m even contemplating getting a ‘woman what does’ to come in on a Friday and give the place a quick whiffty-ding as my old mum used to say. Only on the off chance of visitors, you understand?  Not that we ever get them due to their fear of contracting some dust/air borne little known to man diseases.

  1. I have a lovely woman wot does and I have never regretted it. Apart from the obvious, it makes me tidy up once a week so she can do her job. It's brilliant. Think of it as providing employment.

    2. LOL - no, it means that we have loads of stuff that we would love to do and we don't LOVE housework.
      And we are supporting a local economy and giving someone (who may really need it) a job. It is win-win.

  2. I lived with a mother who was fastidious about the house, an all, so much so that she used a pin head to remove dust from corners around the window frames - life with her was tedious and boring.

    1. Oh dear that is making it an art form. What did she do for kicks, I wonder?

    1. What a cunning plan! I think I will adopt the same game plan.
