My dad taught me a great way to deal with socks. Always hang them up next to each other and fold them together as soon as they come off the line. I was getting so stressed over a basket full of odd socks!
I do a good clean once a week and it's amazing how clean my house gets when someone tells me they're on the way over.
Our house is tiny so if I let it get too bad it's awful.

oh thank god for this thread!!
I need to show DP. He is a bit of a tidy freak! and I'm more of a chilled-out-rather-play kinda mum, plus I take forever to do anything which peeves him off even more

OP, remember that you're at home to care for your kids, and as long as you get through the day having done that you've done your job.
A couple of months ago my DH was a bit narky because he had no ironed shirts, and made a jibe about how I was home all day. I reminded him that the only reason I left work was to look after our children, not to iron his shirts. If he'd come home 6 years ago and said "I've had a pay rise, you don't have to work anymore. You're free to stay home and iron my shirts instead." I would have said "Thanks all the same, but I prefer my job! Feel free to hire a maid."
