Then I realised that I had another, bigger reservation and it had nothing to do with the website. It was that I was embarassed that I should need such a website. I'm a grown up I thought, I'm not living in chaos, I should know how to run a home without any help.
But who taught me? No-one is the answer. I had to pick it up as I went along. I think we so undervalue the job of homemaker/housewife that it's simply taken for granted that women will grow up knowing how to manage what can be a very complicated life, multitasking, balancing a job, a home and a family and the huge responsibilities that entails - running a household requires so many management skills of quite a high order.
Looking back, I really could have done with some of Fly Lady's systems - it might all have been so much easier.
As a young child I had a stay at home Mum who managed everything perfectly - but I had no idea how she did it. It just happened while I was at school. Clean clothes appeared, meals appeared, library books were returned, holidays happened, presents arrived on birthdays. It all went so smoothly, but we never talked about how.
How did you learn to run a household?
