I know some people really love to clean and tidy. I don't. I'm naturally a clean person, but, equally naturally also, an untidy person, and yes, the two things ARE different! I just don't have 'the knack' of keeping things neat, outside my craft activities, and I decided some time ago that I'm not wasting my time beating myself up about it any more. To me, housework is a soul-destroying, repetitive activity that I could be doing 18 hours a day and it still wouldn't be finished - so why do more than is absolutely necessary when there are so many more creative, exciting things out there which would give both me and the people around me genuine joy? I'm not going to be lying on my deathbed wishing I'd spent more time doing housework, after all!
Cooking is another matter. I could happily spend days at a time at the oven, and indeed often have when 'big things' are happening in terms of celebrations etc. So, don't worry - we might die from the weight of cobwebs falling on us, but we will die well fed from my cooking and warm, wrapped in my quilts!
