What does a domestic goddess have to do with time management?

November 29th, 2007 · 5 Comments

I don’t believe in time “management”. Every single person on this planet has the same number of nanoseconds in their day as every single other human being on this planet. So how come some are always complaining about not having enough time, and others just get on with it? We cannot “manage” time – we [...]

Today begin looking at everything in your life in a new way. “Do I really love it? Do I really need it? Would I be better off without it?” Instead of buying and spending, save that money. Let your money work for you for a change. This is the beginning of laying new groundwork for [...]

The washing-machine-repair-man just left.  Last week, the machine was making a rather nasty noise when spinning… and the next day after a load finished, there was a ‘smell’ in the laundry.  When I opened the machine, I found a pair of knickers firmly melted to a t-shirt.  And a big burn mark in the neck [...]

Talking about Laundry

August 17th, 2005 · No Comments

In my post yesterday I talked about pothole #3 – Laundry. And I felt an additional discussion on this subject was warranted. That of ‘womans work’, delegation, family chore sharing et al. In my home, I do the washing.  Strict divisions of labour.  I wash, hang, and mostly it’s me that folds.  Everyone puts away [...]
