My Household Chores
Doing household chores is a necessary part of our life. There are certain things in life which you have to do whether you like it or not. One of such things is household chores, doing which is a necessity. People all over the world try to work hard. They usually have a lot of duties. I have a lot of duties, too. My parents are often tired and I must take care of them. Everybody is happy when the home is always bright and clean. To my mind housework is boring and besides, it takes a lot of time with a hardly visible result. Day after day I can have fun when I do my household chores. I sweep the floor, tidy my room, clean the shoes, dust the furniture, make food myself, and do every kind of work. It’s not easy to do every kind of work at home, but I can learn to do everything myself. If every member of the family does his bit about the house then keeping it isn’t difficult or boring and proves the proverb: “Many hands make light work”.
When I do my household chores well, everybody in the family is happy. Household chores are the things that I can’t avoid. If I have a holiday party at home, I can help my mother and grandmother a lot. Every day I make my bed, wash up the dishes, wipe the dust off the furniture, and take out my rubbish. How happy mother is to see everything bright! It’s a nice present for my parents to tidy the house! It’s wonderful to make people happy! If I have time, my mother asks me to go to the shop. I go there and buy bread, eggs, and sugar. Very often I go to the market with my mother. We buy some vegetables and fruits. Then I help my mother to carry them. My mother cooks well; sometimes I help her when she makes cakes. She usually makes them before the holidays and on my birthday. We have got a country house. Sweeping, Vacuuming, Washing dishes, doing laundry, preparing meals, cleaning bathrooms, dusting, etc. are my regular household chores.
There is a big garden with many trees, bushes, and flowers in it. There is a lot of work in our garden and I help my parents to do it. We must do our household chores because if we hadn’t done it our flat would look like a trash can. I usually clean my flat on Friday. First of all, I clean with duster table, piano, some boxes, TV, lamp, and many other things. Second I clean with vacuum cleaner carpet in my room, then I clean carpet in mother’s and father’s room. I usually wash the floor in all rooms. Then I wash a bath-shell with “Pemolux”. Later I wash stove with “Fairy”. Every day I must feed my cat. It is very big and fat. I cook a fish soup I to it. After supper, I always wash plates and dishes. Sometimes I cook myself, but my cookies up aren’t so nice as a mother.
So you see keeping the house in order is important to me. It brings me as minutes of boredom so moments of joy and pleasure. I think I make an impact in tiding our place. It is necessary to help the parents. Try to make people happy and you will be happy. I think I spend enough time on keeping the house and hope that such little but nevertheless essential things like household chores will never become the cause for quarrels and conflicts in our family.
