It’s such a satisfying feeling when all the housework’s done,
So I stop and enjoy the moment because it doesn’t last for long.
Look, I can see all the floor! The toys are put away,
(It’s like the Hamleys bomb’s gone off when the kids come down and play!)
The windows are all shiny, no fingerprints or smears,
I’ll give it fifteen minutes before they start to reappear!
The laundry mountain’s conquered; the washing’s on the line;
Oh wait, it’s just begun to rain – I thought it would be fine!
The clutter has been banished (don’t look inside the drawers)
I’ve cleaned the bathroom, mopped the floors and finished all the chores.
If only it could stay like this, I think to myself, but then:
The husband and the kids walk in and make a mess again!
