My DH is a clean freak. When I get up and clean so does he. More often than not he's up cleaning before I am... Lol.
I work weekends normally. I come home to a spotless house and dinner. It's just the way he is.
However it's equal. I pull my weight during the week. And evening clean up (dishes, feeding animals, etc) we both get into. It actually works really well and we both sit down at the same time

Most of the time (it's usually just dishes or putting on a load of washing or taking the rubbish out) I don't mind I dont always get my 'to do' list done plus I'd rather he put the kids need first

Not always. I have learnt that it is best not to ask him as if asked he is less likely to do it. If I keep quiet about it he will usually just do it. This am I went out for breakfast and I came home to find the kitchen clean but if I had asked him to do it he would get his back up and not do it. He is a bit cleaner than me though so it would seem a little hypocritical for me to ask

DH is really good actually. But I do have to ask before he cleans. He cooks without being asked all the time though.

We don't really ask each other to do house chores...
anything around the house that needs doing we just write it on the fridge with a whiteboard marker, and then whoever does it just crosses it off. It's pretty equal. But we both like a clean house and see it as a mutual responsibility.

DF is a clean freak, I never have to ask for anything, he just sees what needs doing and does it.

DP is more pedantic about cleaning than I am, and he'll go on cleaning missions... where he's all, "let's clean every bloody thing at 7am!" but generally, he's not much of a cleaner. He doesn't cook dinner. He doesn't wash clothing. He doesn't do the dishes. Etc etc. He does no housework, basically. So if I want something done, I have to ask.
He claims he fell asleep. I'm not sure why... considering he was supposed to be taking care of DD while I was gone (but she had fallen asleep too). That said, he was awake 15 mins before I was home because he messaged me to ask when I was returning... so he had enough time to start it even if he fell asleep the moment I left the house!

Sometimes it gets done. He can get distracted. And if he has a hint of Manflu forget it.
