Exercise 2 | True or False?
Well, yes actually, I used to do plenty of housework when I was a child and adolescent. My parents were quite strict in that on Saturday mornings the whole family would help out cleaning the house, including myself, and my older brother and sister. I would always do the sweeping while my brother and sister would mop the kitchen floor and hoover the rooms which had carpets in the house.
When I got older, I was always ironing and doing the washing as well, usually on a Sunday night, as school uniforms had to be ready for Monday morning. I’m not sure how these became my jobs but they did, even though I didn’t really enjoy them. I often helped my parents cooking as well, which was great in hindsight, as I learned lots of useful cooking skills. Although I didn’t really like housework when I was younger, I think it was useful for my later life and it made me a more responsible person.
