I do work full time, but I have no cleaner.
DH keeps on top of general everyday cleaning during the weekdays, then I do a more thorough clean on the weekends.
At times I have considered hiring a cleaner, but I'd prefer at this stage to just manage housework between the two of us and save the $.
Neither of us insist on having a 'spotless' home. Clean & tidy is good enough

If I can work it in the budget i'd love to get a cleaner when I go back to work. While I'm a SAHM (not studying or anything) I couldn't bring myself to splurge on a cleaner .. to do what I see as my job.

Definitely do it!! I am just about to go back teaching 1.5 days a week. My DH is a farmer and usually works 6-7 days a week, when things aren't busy. He has told me I can get a cleaner when I work 3 days a week or more .

Yep, I work full time and we have a cleaner. She comes on Friday while we are both at wok and has her own key. I trust her completely.
We used to spend a whole Saturday cleaning which was awful because that's time we could have been spending together. Now we come home to a sparkling house every Friday. Bliss.

i would think the precious hours i spend at home would be with my partner, kids, pets....doing the odd jobs that no-one else can.
oh, and spending at LEAST an afternoon in my pyjamas watching foxtel

Hmmm. probably not. I hate paying people for jobs I can do myself. I guess I'm lucky cos dh pitches in. If he didn't, then I would prob get exhausted of the grind.
But as a SAHM I totally*dream* of having a cleaner!

I work fulltime 8 months of the year, 60 hours a week starting at 6am, the kids come with me and we have 5 children. It makes life so much easier and nicer to have someone come in on a Friday. Much nicer start to the weekend. There is still plenty fr me to do though...
