It’s funny to witness the changes that happen in the life of human being.
How many times we said “When I’ll be 18….when I’ll be older…when I’ll live alone”? I believe hundred times in our life. Or at least in our living-with-parents-life I would say!
I was thinking about that this morning, cleaning the house for a friend’s arrival.
Now this is very good occasion and my house is gratefully blessing this friend of mine because it needed a real tidy-up and also a cleaning session!
It was hundred times easier when grandma, mum or whoever was hired for the job DID the job!!!
I have to admit now that my full time job, my writing stuff and my not so strong will don’t let me clean or tidy the house like I wish…
I understand that it is better, it is nicer to live in it once the job is done and also it has a good perfume of clean, but still housekeeping is not at the top of my priority list. (Hey I’m not saying I’m living in a garbage dump, but neither in a shiny castle!)
There are people who say that artists should live in the mess, because that’s very good to create! I kind of agree with them because in my mess I can find everything…and let’s be honest I’ve always been messy and lazy, but still it was good for me. And maybe I should consider me lucky, very lucky that my partner doesn’t mind and lets me do whatever I want, and still he does help me rescuing sometimes the couch and let it breathe!
I hope this friend of mine won’t be too disappointed, but believe me, there is a huge difference from before!
I cannot imagine what I’ll do when I’ll have kids! I guess I’ll have to hire someone! So it’s better I work now to become rich and famous….or I could start to play lotto!!!
