What do your cleaning habits say about you?

Australia

The above quote is from Seb, the young son of David Thorn, owner of one of our favourite Australian blogs– 27b/6. While we laughed, it also got us thinking about what our home and our cleaning habits say about our priorities. Do we really have better things to do or is that just a nice excuse we tell ourselves?

We’re once a week cleaners– we make the bed daily, do a couple of loads of washing during the week, attempt to keep up with the dishes but truth be told most of our weekly housework is done every Saturday afternoon. If we really tried we could do more house work in the evenings, however during the week we’d rather spend the time talking with our partner, having dinner with friends, going to the gym and working on projects. Walk into our house in the middle of the week and it's reflected that cleaning is not a priority every day but come 2pm on a Saturday you better get out of our way, there is work to do!

What are your cleaning habits? Do they reflect your priorities?

And what are you thoughts on Seb’s quote? We love it but then the same little genius also said "Leaves burn, why can't we just fill our car up with them? They are free.” so maybe we need to rethink our mentors!
