After a discussion with my partner this morning it seems I can’t do anything right .Whether it’s not washing up straight away, not putting something back where it goes or simply not putting the toilet roll on the holder the right way.
Don’t get me wrong, my house is very clean I just don’t agree with the stereotype that it’s the ‘woman’s job’ if I wasn’t working full time and was a house wife I would have no problem with that, but I do work a lot so for me it’s done when it’s done.
Who can actually say what is right and wrong. It’s just different. We were both do things in different ways and I think that has a lot to do with how were brought up.
When I was younger my step mum would be hoovering on her way out of the door to go on to on holiday. A normal day you would be looking at 6times a day.!! I think because I saw this a lot when I was growing up I don’t like to over do it, I would rather do something else during that time.
My partner however..We have a constant joke that he has OCD (obviously if you do actually have this it isn’t a joke) he likes to see the stripes in the carpet after hoovering it and won’t walk back over it after it’s done because it will flatten the pile and leave a foodprint. Where as for me if there’s no bits on the floor it’s job done.
Anyway, my point is just because he see it as wrong does that actually make it wrong?
In my eyes… NO! So whenever you feel like you can’t do anything right (and I must admit I’m a bit of a pro at it) just think…is it really wrong or is it just different to how you do it? And also it’s the 21st century …we can’t all be perfect housewives.
