The differences between us..

I think I'm realising why the house is so messy and why I feel so lazy and frustrated all the time.

Housework done by me yesterday
Dishwasher loaded and emptied twice
Washing hung on line and brought in when dry
Spare room cleared
Dinner prepared
Cake baked
Cats fed twice

Housework done by the boy yesterday
Dinner served (I was watching Eastenders :p)
Cats fed once
Spare room cleared (he did more than me because much of it was heavy boxes and furniture moving)

To be honest I have no idea how much he'd do if he wasn't nagged, I don't take that risk ;) Seems very unfair as we're both on holiday and both work full time and while the dishwasher and laundry seem to have turned into my jobs somewhere along the way, his jobs like cleaning the kitchen only get done once every few months (I feel sick when I go in there.. little lumps of dried on cat food everywhere.. mud and grass all over the floor..) I hate cleaning the kitchen so I'm not going to just do it, I'm going to make him do it :p He only seems to clean when people come over, and never cleans just for me :(
Anyway, I think I'm due a nice lazy day today while himself does all the sanding and painting! Muahaha.
We're both going to my midwife appointment at 11, slightly nervous about this because I've only taken Stu to 2 appointments with me before but I cried both times. It seems like a bad omen. I can't think of anything I've got to cry about today though, I've got nothing to bring up with her at all. But he wants to come and I'd like him to come too, to hear the heartbeat and maybe hear what position the baby's lying in and everything (I can't work it out, I know sometimes a hard lump sticks out of my left side, but I also feel movement on my left side and in the middle, down low where it hurt :p Perhaps that's the two arms? Hmm)
Anyway off for breakfast, boiled-to-death egg and toast :)

Awww bless him :) Stu cooks sometimes, loads the dishwasher sometimes.. and he does hoover and clean the kitchen. But nowhere near as often as I'd like :/
Your ex sounds like a nightmare! Stu isn't that bad.. he used to be when he lived with a man though, there was never anything to eat off and they didn't even scrape the leftover food off their plates before leaving it for 3 weeks to rot :( There were some vile things in that house, I can't believe nobody got ill from living there!
we also don't put clothes away, they mound up for about a month and then get taken upstairs and thrown in a pile of cat hair on the floor. I can't actually get to my section of the wardrobe or my drawers at the moment due to all the junk from the spare room blocking the way.. so am living our of baskets :/
I'm just as lazy and selective about what I do I guess, but at least I do things every day and without nagging.
The other day I made my rolls and took them in to work. At lunchtime I was eating them and noticed a lump of brown jelly on my finger. At first I thought "what the hell is this in the tuna" and then it dawned on me that it was jelly from cat food.. as usual Stu had fed them in the morning and left lumps of jelly lying everywhere, and I'd dared to just put my wrapped rolls down on a surface for 5 minutes before putting them in my bag! I told him and he thought it was hilarious.. I thought it was horrible :(
