How house proud are you?

Are you houseproud?? Do you like you house to be ‘just so’ – or is it just simply somewhere to lay your head, and you’re not fussed what it looks like? I’m fairly houseproud, even as a teenager I loved to decorate my room, and keep it tidy-ish and a nice space to spend time in. I’m not obsessive… I’m certainly no fan of housework – I do what I have to do and no more. It’s something of a running joke in our house that housework doesn’t happen. The kicthen gets cleaned after we’ve used it, pots washed and sides wiped… the floor in the living/dining area gets hoovered daily {messy kids and animals}, beds made each morning and a quick ‘put away’ at the end of the day. I like it to be clean, and not so messy I’d not want to invite an unexpected guest in ha!

Carpetright have recently launched ‘The House Proud Survey‘ – this survey asks a few questions to gauge how house proud you are as a person, from the answers you give you are then generated a house proud profile.

I took the survey and my result was ‘The Nester'{pretty apt for a pregnant lady no?!}, the older I get, the more I find myself tweaking the house to make it ‘just right’. I’ve just spent the last couple of days painting the bathroom, nothing beats a cosy, welcoming house!

If you go take this fun survey, you can enter into a prize draw to win a £250 Virgin Experience. You can enter the survey and find out more here – let me know what result you got!

    I scored Perfectionist, probably because I am slightly OCD. I find as I am getting older, I can let things slide and not have a nervous breakdown!

    I’ve found myself getting more and more house proud the older I’ve got funny enough..although our house is far from tidy ;) x

    I got “The Nester” too! I can be picky about how my house looks, and I definitely worry about it a lot and try to maintain it. At the same time, both my husband and I are busy working people- honestly sometimes I’m just too tired to care!

    I’ve always been quite tidy, but over the last few years it’s kind of developed into a near OCD-style obsession – I blame Pinterest for giving me unattainable expectations!

    I got ‘the nester’ too…although before I took up this blogging lark I would have probably got “need to get a life or see a doctor re your OCD!” These days I’m like a yo-yo flying between the housework and my computer! x

    I am a lot like you – I love the decorate my space and make it homely and personal but not a huge fan of housework and pretty much do what needs to be done – just don’t have the time to do anymore :)
