It has been a long week. We have come home to our private sanctuary, a welcome refuge from the stresses of the workplace. Instead of feeling comfortably at home, we noticed the surroundings are a little worse for wear. The floor boards are dusty, the windows are so dirty we can not seem through them, the shower is not draining, the light switch looks like it is about to meltdown. When was the last time we paid any attention to where we lived? Life is so busy, we are so time poor, we have not had the time to even look after our self and where we lived.
We walk on the balcony or outside to the front yard. It is looking very grim, our once bright home is weathered and beaten. We must revive it and give our home meaning a place where we reside and take comfort. The verandah leaks water when it rains, the garden has overgrown to the point it looks like it belongs in the amazon jungle.
Right, time to get the home looking spanking brand new again like when we first moved in and to keep it that way. We are going to buy some time, people who can help when we are at work, the reason it got into this state was that we were time poor!
We will need a cleaner to keep the inside of the house dust free and then have them come once a week to keep it that way. We will need a plumber to clear out the plumbing so that the water drains freely and not up to our ankles when we have a shower to relax ourselves. We will need an electrician to replace that light switch so we do not electrocute anyone! We will need a handy man to fix the roofing so the water does not leak when it rains. For the garden it is going to require someone with a bit of appreciation of nature, a gardener who will give the flowers plenty of room to bloom, pull out all the weeds that encroach the grass and pavement, and then finally a painter who can give the home a fresh new look.
This all sounds like a lot of work. And a lot of people to contact before we even start.
