Number One Wife doesn't like it when I do the cleaning. It is not that I don't do it properly. It is just that I try to do it too properly. Where a quick vacum round would do I insist on dismantling the sofa to get out into all the hard to reach bits that are not really dirty anyway. This means that I get around a fifth of the way round the room before I either run out of time or get bored with the job. So we have one part of our house which is really clean and the rest... Come round some time and see if you can spot where I've been.
