Thanks TL. Today I really had to face facts. I am not 20 years old and cannot race through my home cleaning it from top to bottom in one day. So come Monday the nurse is coming to check me for a problem I am having. I will mention to her to please recommend a cleaning lady for me.

Getting a cleaning lady should make you feel, hmmm, how do I describe it, posh? aristocratic?

Steve suggested getting a house cleaner here as I have trouble sometimes doing loads of housework with my shoulder and now my knee...

I still prefer to clean my own house though but Ads for you, it sounds like the perfect solution

That's what I thought too. You should give it a try. One tax season, I was so busy that I decided to get a house cleaner. She was great. She did stuff exactly the way I wanted it done.

I would get a house cleaner again, if I felt that I had the budget for it.

Well one thing for sure. I don't have to worry about the expense. And the housekeepers they have do a great job. I have seen how they clean. I just hope I don't turn into one of those folks who have to have the house clean for the housekeeper. I know a lot of women who do that. They are given four hours to do each apartment. You can breeze through mine in no more than two. And that is doing deep cleaning. All my furniture is on wheels. So it is easy to get behind if need be. Stove and fridge are on wheels too.

I am beginning to look forward to be Mrs. Van Trash Can. Who knows. Maybe Mrs. Van der Bilt will have me to tea.

My mums partner has a cleaning lady and he tidies up a bit before she comes

Taxy, that is great that you have had a house cleaner, I bet it was great, as you would have been very busy with your work

I admit to tidying up before the cleaner came, but if I didn't, it would have made her work much more difficult. I did not clean before she came.

Yup, it was a big help during busy tax season, and partially deductible on income tax.
