Why Is My Husband Rubbish At Housework?!!!

By | General | No Comments

With the kids off and my full time job extremely hectic the last thing I wanted to come home to over the last couple of weeks was a disorganized house!

Don’t get me wrong, my husband Phil is fantastic at home – he cooks, washes up and is absolutely brilliant with the kids, but when it comes to the housework he is absolutely useless!!

Sometimes I think he would fail to dust if I presented him with an electric duster!

So what are the real reasons that men are so bad at housework?

1. It’s Human Nature!

Sadly it was engraved in our DNA that it was the men that should go out and bring home the bacon and the women should stay at home and keep everything in order.

I think most would agree the women staying at home bit is most definitely not common, unfortunately although men now see their income and time spent at work matched by their partners it’s been engraved into them they still shouldn’t be doing any housework!!

2. Inability To Multitask

I’m obviously biased by can men honestly multi task as well as women? I honestly have never seen any evidence of it and believe it’s a good reason men are crap at housework!

3. There cleverer than they look?

Do a lot of men do a particularly bad job because they know they will be taken off the detail? My guess is yes and women just fall into the trap!

4. They obviously don’t like love making!

It’s been proven that couples who share the housework make love more often. If your husband or partner is shirking his housework responsibilities he obviously doesn’t like the love!

Can you think of anymore ladies? Men……what have you got to say for yourselves? Opinions and thoughts in the comments section please!

 

 

With the Olympics Drawing To A Close Here Are 5 Reasons To Love Brasil

By | Useful | No Comments

I didn’t think I was going to watch the Olympics this year, there was so much controversy before it started it put a bit of a dampener on it.

The Russian doping scandal, construction workers tragically killed whilst building the stadiums and the disease issue was obviously not the best of starts but as we go into the final weekend I can report I have thoroughly enjoyed it.

The excitement, heartache, joy & happiness of these talented athletes that train for 4 year for one competition provides excellent viewing.

My only disappointment has been the emptiness of some of the stadiums.

Since Brasil is firmly on the world’s minds I thought it would be appropriate to write a post outlining 5 reasons everyone should love Brasil:

1. Amazing Climate:

The country enjoys good climate and weather all year round. You will appreciate the sunny and warm climate that makes the outdoors conducive.

2. Panoramic Views:

Brasil is home to many natural and manmade features. These include mountains, the ocean, jungles, monuments, historical building and much more. Ever heard of the Christ the Redeemer statue?

3. Shopping:

Do you know that Brasil is among the fasted growing economies in the word? Due to this, the region is experiencing a boom in shopping malls like the Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping centre, which is a prime example of the excellent shopping facilities available.

4.Partying:

Brasil is home to Samba, Forro, Bossa Nova and other music genres. The country is also renowned for its many carnivals.

5.Wildlife:

Due to being in the Amazon region, Brasil enjoys great biodiversity. You can go for safari walks, nature trails, birdwatching, marine expedition and much more.
