Book Review | Housework Blues

Sorry for the quiet couple of days, I won't lie there was my dreadful hangover which dragged on till Monday and yesterday inspired by this weeks read I took on the task of tidying my flat (also suffering a hangover from Saturday night!)

Housework Blues is "a survival guide" on "how to cope with the mental and emotional challenge of keeping a home"
Now don't fear I'm not suffering serious emotional and mental issues to my housework but I do find I can sit around very often doing very little and I'll take all the help I can get!

So far it's interesting, rather like talking to a friend who is offering sensible advice on tackling work that has to be done and if not by someone else by you!

This evening I've arrived home late from work, tidied my flat, washed one load of laundry, put the rubbish out, been to Tesco, made a chilli, washed up, tried on some outfits, paid a bill, ordered some new underwear and wrote this post! Not bad! So far I'd say it's having a positive effect!

Pin It Now!


  1. Sounds like a very motivating book! Maybe this is what I need to get my house shipshape ...

  2. awwww..i feel you there about having to do some housework when you have a hangover! as for me, hangover or not, it's just too hard to keep up with the housechores, looks like the book could help with the houseworks,maybe my disease is just a laziness to do it :) but i see that you've been busy! x susan

  3. Now, I could get my hands on a copy of this book or I could just get hold of you when I need motivating ;o)which is, of course quite often!

  4. I could do with that book, there's always something else which I'd rather be doing than housework.

  5. Sounds like a good book, who enjoys housework, it is always such a drag : ( xxx

  6. Ooh that sounds like a book for me.

    Don't you just hate hangovers that go on and on and on...?

  7. Blimey, Victoria - you managed to get more done in one evening than I have done all week so far!!

  8. "Mental and emotional challenge" of keeping a home??? Oh I see, they refer to the hysterics you can get when you live with messy people like my family,LOL!
