Another Handy Household Hint ....

... here's another good way to avoid doing housework.  This one's better than my last one, as it allowed me to be too busy for housework for six days.

So how does this work?  Well, I'll tell you.

Day One: think you might like to buy a new car, and spend some time working out whether it's a sensible thing to do.  Finally decide that, sensible or not, you're going to do it.

Day Two: start researching which car you'd like.  By the end of the day you should have a short-list of two or three cars.

Day Three: carry out on-line research into models, prices, etc.

Day Four: visit dealers for test drives and decide which one you want. Negotiate and agree the price with the appropriate dealer.

Day Five: do nothing apart from arranging insurance for the new car.

Day Six: go and pick up your lovely, shiny new car, drive it home and spend the rest of the day showing it off to friends and family.

and here it is - my housework avoidance result.

I hope you've found this helpful.
