Finally I realise that I can no longer keep my house as clean as I once used to. My RA has taken its toll on me, even although I am much better than I was this time last year I still find that bending and kneeling and cleaning takes it out of my energy levels and I simply cannot do the things I used to..my fingers, hands and wrists complain when I put pressure on them, my hips, knees and feet scream when I am constantly bending and twisting, and I can forget about kneeling right now
So I finally capitulated and got myself a cleaner.....her first visit was yesterday. In the allotted two hours she had my kitchen gleaming and coming downstairs this morning I find renewed delight at how clean everything is and my joints are not complaining that it had taken me all day to do what she did in two hours
I will have to adjust my budget to pay her but it is worth every penny and look forward to her next visit in two weeks, then it is my sitting room and hall that will be attacked by my cleaner.
So for today the pressure to clean has been lifted and I can just potter.....so hope you are all having a good day
