Hi - like the joke about the Slovac!!
Basically, I do the housework when I have a good day - then I go like mad and do loads and suffer for it the next day. Personally I'd rather do the garden - it lasts longer. You can clean through one day and it just needs doing again the next. I also don't iron as much as I used to - only the middle of sheets for instance - then I tuck the creased bits under the mattress! By the way, does anyone else use one of those sheets with a satin middle - great for helping you to turn over in the night.
When baking little cakes, I use an ice cream scoop to get the mixture out of the bowl and into the paper cases. It helps because I can hold that with two hands.
If I think of any more I'll let you know. Good luck with the article.
