It's an on going cause of debate in our household. I try not to pick arguments over it and I try to see that sometimes it is just best to get on and do something rather than nag. However, when it's noted by certain others that the Hubs does 'too much' then I do get cross. So I've made a list - I do love a good list.
Things I do regularly:
- bed making
- swimming lesson run
Things the Hubs does regularly:
- weekly shopping
- weekly bins
- weekend cooking
He works full time, I work three days a week.
We share the school runs.
I sense this is the norm.
I feel I do my fair share seeing I'm not at work full-time.
I don't think the hubs does too much.
Sadly I do want to regain the responsibility of the weekly shop - control freak in me - and during half term I did a mini one, which I enjoyed partly due to the fact that I got to try out a new bag. Or more to the point a bag of bags.
The bag was fantastic - the Eco 8-bag Set Mini Dot Turq/Choc from ZPM. The colour combo is perfect and the cross body design with adjustable strap is great for hands free action in the supermarket. It has lots of nifty features including a see through pocket for your list, Velcro to attach to the trolley itself, trolley token, phone pocket, zipper compartment for your wallet and extras and a spacious middle compartment holding vest style shopping bags, box shopping bags and net bags for fruit and veg. It definitely beats dragging out bags full of tatty bags every time.
The shape and look means it can also be used for general day to day use with the main compartment comfortably big enough for an iPad and extras.

So, how do the domestic chores get split in your house?
