I know it's not just me that hates doing chores. I hate most cleaning tasks, for some reason hoovering helps me to relax but I think this is more to do with the fact that the noise drowns out the kids moaning.
I do love shopping though, not just clothes shopping but food shopping. I don't know whether it's because I love my food (which I do!) but I just like being out, in a supermarket and choosing what I want to buy so I hardly ever buy food online.
When I saw this infographic by Co-operative Insurance, I couldn't help agree with parts of it. We live in Yorkshire (I bet you've guessed that by our name!) and, although I don't go out much, my husband loves a good old night out with his friends and I love to chat to them online. Even if I'm not out with my friends, I still speak to them everyday, probably more than I speak to my husband (women speak more sense anyways!)
I was shocked to see that, out of the people surveyed, it showed that people only play with their children for 9 hours a month. Just today I have built a fort, made Christmas cards, played with trains, had a cowboy fight and spent around 4 hours just having fun with my children so am shocked to hear that statistic but I guess nowadays with people having to go back to work and have childcare, I can understand where this figure comes from.
Apparently, we spend 4 times as much time watching television than we do in the garden. I do spend a lot of the night watching television and hate being outdoors in the cold so I can probably agree with this one for the most part.
I think, on the most part, this infographic makes me think about our life and how it differs to other people. We need to get back to the point where we spend as much time as possible with our children.
So what, there's toys all over the house, they are children and you should be spending time playing with them, not picking up every toy. A home with children is not supposed to be spotless!
