At least one advantage of being a poor single mum

23 Jul

This just occurred to me as I was rushing around getting things done before bedtime and thinking ‘Argh, there is SO MUCH to sort out!’ – the advantage of living in a fairly tiny house is that I can get things done while my daughter is in the bath.

If I was living in a massive house like the ones I lust after on Rightmove that have me lying awake for hours plotting the career paths required to ever live in such a house, I’d have a utility room that would probably be miles away from the bathroom(s).

This way my daughter can spend a good while playing in the bath as I hang up washing right next to her, clean the bathroom or mop the kitchen floor (the bathroom goes directly off the kitchen as a sort of extension), avoiding a small bit of extra hassle.

Of course, really rich people would just have their cleaner do the washing for them, but I’m not even thinking about that right now!
