Today maybe wasn’t so frugal. But it was worth it.
A couple of times a year I pay to have someone help me with cleaning the house. I was never very good at housework and disability hasn’t improved my skills. I can’t clean windows now, moving furniture is risky, and quite honestly I just haven’t got the strength or stamina which I had even a few years ago.
So today my gardener's grandaughter, Louise came and cleaned through for me. She’s only nineteen and she’s a student but boy, can she clean! My house feels wonderful. I would usually have the job done in December so it was just a case of bringing it forward.
And it is part of my staycation. Paying for a few hours cleaning is a lot cheaper than paying for a stay in an hotel.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
