A Woman's Work...


A woman’s work is never done, that’s how the saying goes and as the years of domestic drudgery have slipped by I realise that never a truer word was spoken. I like to think that I channel my inner Betty Draper whenever I haul the vacuum cleaner from the back of the cupboard, or hang out the daily (yes I repeat daily) wash load. I am glamorously in control of my rubber gloves and never happier than when I am making that lovely home even lovelier for my adoring and appreciative family.
Yeh, right.
I am a slave to the bathrooms (who needs two really), and unlike my younger self I notice grime and cobwebs more than I ever used to, and cannot just let them lie. In these days of tightened belts and expensive family bills I cannot afford a cleaner and am therefore into a daily routine of washing, cooking, shopping, cleaning, vacuuming, dusting, tidying, emptying rubbish bins, ironing… Feeling sorry for me yet?
Unlike Betty Draper I also work. No wonder my eyebrows are always in need of a wax and my nails in need of a manicure. My family don’t really acknowledge all this input into their clean (well mostly), ordered and tidied home and the fact that their dinner is always on the table even when I’m out working. I am Wonder Woman and I know it, and now I am extra excited because I can prove it!
Your Cover Insurance have come up with a nifty little application called Chores Worth. Now I can prove that if I were paid for all the work I do in the house I would be richer than the rest. The brilliant thing about this app. is that I can enter in the details of everyone else too and there will be no escaping who does what and who doesn’t! It's so easy - you put in your name, your role in the house and then you choose the tasks you perform and how many hours a week you perform them for...

And then it simply adds up your hours across the year and gives you a total of how much you should earn...

Yes this is me and I am worth to my family at least £79,566. Well okay I may have over-egg'd the pudding a bit on this one with 6 hours hard ironing a day but that is what it feels like to me! Had I been more charitable I would have added in my families names - after all my husband does clean the bathrooms and occasionally vacuum's the stair carpets, but I just wanted to bask in the recognition that I do 100% of it and am worth that amount. Roll on Mother's Day I say, I'm expecting something extra special!

It is so easy to download and great fun so if you're feeling like you need to prove your worth then the application is downloadable for both Apple and Android. For further information and to download visit Your Cover Insurance. 
To celebrate the launch of the Chores Worth application, Your Cover Insurance have a free prize draw where they are giving away a whole load of fantastic prizes including Dyson handheld vacuum cleaners, De'Longhi Magnifica coffee brewers and also iTunes vouchers and Bose SoundDocks to have you singing while you work. All you have to do is enter by liking their Facebook Page before March 31st when the competition ends.
