Right now my house looks like it could be in either "How Clean is your house" or "Anthea Turners Perfect Housedwife" TV shows, and I mean the before part of the show not the after. I have neither the motivation nor the inclination to do much about it right now.  However I really need to do it. Yesterday I had the perfect excuse after a phone call inviting me out on a shopping trip, well to say I was out of the house in a flash is an understatement.

Well I thought that if I blogged about it then it would have to happen as I would be held accountable , if you see what I mean. If the great wide blogging world knew that I needed to do it then to save face I would have to get it done. I would show some before pictures so we can compare the after but I would be too ashamed to do it. So you will just have to imagine what it looks like, ha ha ha !

When I was washing the dishes the other day (dishwasher is broken) I was thinking about the people out there who would be greatful to have dishes to wash or the people who would be greatful to have food on their plates to feed their hungry families.  So everytime I grumbled about the pile of dishes, and there seemed alot,  I gave thanks for the food we had eaten and the fact that I could stand there and wash them in my own cozy home.

I have alot of books on the Amish and the Shaker way of life, Oh my goodness how I admire these people especially the women. They take care of what can be huge families with limited modern things that most other families wouldnt dream of not having. They make do with what they have and still have time for the family. Granted few of these women actually work outside the home and with grown up daughters at home they also do their part to keep the house in order. I am sure it is not an idilic life and it would certainly not be for everyone, but I enjoy dipping into these books from time to time.

Anyway, I shall get going I have lots to be getting on with. I shall be back later in the day to update on how it has been going. If you would like to share some top Housekeeping tips then please leave a comment and I will reply as soon as possible.

God Bless.
