    Hmm...maybe you could send your OH a receipt for your cleaning services...? And you're child care services too...

    Surely you have a lot of spare time, in between, cooking and child rearing...and working?

    Default Does anyone have a cleaner come in?

    Our house is a pig pen to say the least! I also have no excuse as I don't work, I just hate cleaning. But I couldn't get a cleaner in. I'd just feel too weird about having somebody in our house.
    My parents had a guy come once a fortnight when I was living there and I'd hide in my bedroom the whole morning lol!

    I'm confused...if you pay for the services of a cleaner then how can your DP stop you?

    But also, what's your DP's objection to you having a cleaner?

    Catrules I feel the same way but I'm going to try it. If I don't feel comfortable I will just stop having them come around.. Will only employ a lady too hopefully that helps with not feeling awkward about it.

    I also would like to know why people's partners object? Is it they see it as a waste of money because u could do it yourself? My dh has been pushing me to get one so I don't have to worry about it. I get stressed if the house is a mess.. Have enough to worry about so if I can take one thing out then he wants me to..

    He says that we should do it ourselves. He is not lazy by any means, he does a lot around the house. I absolutely hate it, and financially I am going to have to go back to work full time soon, so I will definitely be getting one then. He will be told, and I will stand my ground!! Haha.

    Default Does anyone have a cleaner come in?

    I've tried 4 cleaners and none of them did a very good job (unless I am really fussy?) and none of them would use my Enjo products so I just do it myself, I don't mind doing it but I prefer not having too lol.

    We pay $15 an hour. (I pay her even if she doesn't work though)

    That's her price and she refused a raise.
