    I dont want to start a debate, but back in the ages of our mothers that was their only role so dont feel bad. Modern women have many different hats.
    There wasnt lifes modern distractions back then

    Not for me. I do work full time and hate housework but I value my privacy and wouldn't feel comfortable. JMO.

    I worked full time and got a cleaner. Made life easier. BUT, the house was so much cleaner and tidier when I worked full time and our ds wasn't home during the week either. Now that I'm working 1/2 - 1 day a week and our dd is home most days and our ds is home from 3 every day the house can get out of control so quickly. I think I need a cleaner much more now than when I was working full time, but now we can't afford it - I get a friend to help me out every couple of months when things get out of control.

    I don't work at all and have a cleaner come once a week.

    Nope. I've worked full time and still could not justify the cost. It seems wasteful to me, that money could be put towards weekends away, which we would enjoy far more than an extra half hour each day.

    No I wouldn't

    For me to hire a cleaner for say 2 hours I'd have to work 5 hours to have that (taking into account after tax etc) - I'd rather do my own cleaning and work less.

    I'm a single mum and work part time. I've had cleaners on and off, but I find having to clear the clutter the day before too stressful. Any tips on preparing for the cleaner so it's easy?

    No.

    If you have a routine and clean every day it takes far less time then doing it once a week or twice a week.

    I have done spurts of full time work with DD and also DP having a broken leg a few months back and I managed fine. I also like cleaning and wouldn't trust a stranger in my house. I'm just like that.
