    I was thinking the same as a previous post. Are they completely dry?

    Maybe your linen cupboard has a moisture issue and needs one if those moisture absorbency box things

    I think some fabric softener would help but it's got to be those strong long lasting ones. Perhaps some drawer liners in there that smell nice too?

    THIS! I have a sports bra that goes over my head then I have to do the clasp up behind me, I swear it takes me at least 4-5 minutes to get both hooks lined up.

    OMG yes. The amount of times I have been taught to knit, and as soon as I put the needles down its gone.

    And I still do the L shapes with my hands to tell left from right. People laugh at me about it all the time.

    Wiping skirting boards used to be our punishment when we were naughty as kids lol. Maybe that's why I don't do it now?

    I'm not good at dusting. Or filing. Or being organized in general. We got a filing cabinet. It stood empty for at least a year. Then we filed things. Now there's a pile of stuff next to it that needs to be filed. Too hard.

    If something in the house breaks I pretty much stare blankly at it and then start wondering what sort of tradesperson I'd need to sort it out. If I was at home alone and a fuse went, I'd be sitting in the dark until DH got home. I'm hopeless at that kind of thing. It's weird because DH and I have renovated an old house together and I did heaps of handy things like tiling, plastering, assembling and installing a kitchen... But for some reason in my own home I'm useless.

    I keep our soap in the linen cupboard and it gives everything a nice scent.
    That's about as housewifey as I get.
