    I must be mad. H has agreed that I can have a cleaner every week for 2 hours.

    It's a friend of mine who is a cleaner for a living. I seem to find myself cleaning before she comes to clean & also when she's here because she's a friend feel I should help her & she get's paid :8855:

    Am I crazy???

    id get out of the house. Tell her that as much as youd love to catch up, you dont want to distract her and you ought to be using the time to have 'you time' before baby arrives. She will understand! otherwise id start paying yourself. x

    My folks had a cleaner who was a friend, she only came when no one was home, much simpler.

    I used to do the same B.B. so that makes us both nuts.

    However , in time I did learn to go out and leave her to get on with it, but of course that was after I made her a cup of tea and a biscuit.!!!

    We will generally have a tidy up the evening before (more putting stuff in its right place), so that she only has to clean. she comes on one of the days that both my partner and I are at work so she can just get on with it.

    I once asked a friend who worked as a chambermaid in a hotel in London what she most disliked about her job. I was surprised at her answer - "hotel guests who insist on making their own beds - I have to do it again anyway, and why don't they just let me get on with my job. I just think they don't believe I can do it properly."

    I wonder if your cleaners are thinking the same thing??
