It was cheaper (and better) than putting them in child care to get it done.
    $60 a fortnight is pretty good! How did you find your cleaner? Is it a company or a personal recommendation? I've had issues with companies in the past. Just didn't really feel they were worth what they got paid. Maybe I was just unlucky with the particular cleaners they sent?

    I've had my roomba for a few weeks now and absolutely love it! It doesn't get 100% but keeps the floors looking good between proper vacuums. Plus - because you can schedule it, it can do it in the middle of the night or during the day while you're out so you come home to nice floors. They also do a mopping one, which I didn't realise at first. I would love to test these out as I hate mopping more than vacuuming

    I got mine from a personal recommendation. She gets $20 an hour and does 4 houses in our complex, so it's worthwhile for her to come for an hour and a half a week. She gets stuck right in and doesn't chat or dawdle about.

    Just wondering what others have or will be doing to help make their lives a bit easier with bubby on the way.

    Am I just being lazy?! I have sooo much more appreciation for my mum who raised 3 kids, worked crazy hours in the family business and kept the house spick and span whilst putting a spread of 3-4 dishes on for dinner on a regular basis. I have no idea how she did it! (love you mum!)
    We're did u order the thermomix? An that snazzy vacume? They sound wonderful!
