    Default Favourite chore?

    This is a weird one but do people have a favourite chore? Something they actually look forward to doing?

    Mine is the clothes washing. I just love hanging it up and then folding it when it’s dry (no ironing though!).

    I find it very therapeutic!

    I'm weird. I'm happy to get in and do it because I love the sense of achievement from having a clean house. I LOATHE folding. I also hate redoing it all because the toddler is a whirlwind.

    I am obsessed with vaccuming though. I hate the crunch of stuff under my bare feet. (I only wear bare feet at home)

    I love mowing the lawns, when I used to live at home I also loved to clean the pool.

    Laundry (I dont iron either) and just generally tidying house (not cleaning, but decluttering). Love going through closets/cupboards etc and getting rid of stuff and putting things in their space. We have moved to a much bigger house and it is so nice to have empty spaces..

    I wouldn't go so far as to say I look forward to it, but I find wiping surfaces quite pleasing. Kitchen, bathroom, wherever. It's a weird thing.

    I think mowing the lawn- you see the result very quickly and it's a discrete unit of work- once it's done, it's done for a few weeks. Washing, washing up, vaccuming, cleaning- an hour later it needs doing again.

    Cleaning out the fridge. Although I have 6 people in the family, if you looked in our fridge it is never 'full' like you would expect. I like cleaning the shelves, the crispers and having it spotless inside. I know... I am weird.

    Secondly clothes washing. I moan about it as it's never ending, but you can't beat freshly washed and hung clothes and I love getting stains out!
