The secret diary of a single parent bloke
Although the house is still like a tip, it hasn’t got any worse- amazing when you consider that I used to spend hours tidying it every night.
So I’ve been tackling the mess one small area at a time. Tonight I’ve spent three hours tidying the sofa. Yes, three hours! I lifted up the seat cushions, and found magazines, clothes, cutlery, empty packets, bits of food, crockery and more bills. So most of that went in the bin. Then I pulled the sofa from the wall- it was like an avalanche of rubbish!
I filled three bin bags with rubbish from under and behind the sofa. There was almost everything that you could imagine there, but 99% of it for the bin. It’s just incredible- could she just not be bothered to walk to the bin? It’s going to take me months to tidy the place up.
