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. It’s what someone in the family has to do every day in spite of his wish or desire. You can hardly find a person who doesn’t like comfort, delicious food, clean and tidy clothes. All these things need somebody’s attention and doing them is called housework.

They say that doing housework is boring and, besides, it takes a lot of time with a hardly visible result. In my opinion the best way to do many things about the house is by splitting the job among the family members. 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». But it’s only in theory, and it may be different in practice. Certainly I have some household chores. There are some things which I can’t avoid doing. For instance, my regular chore is cleaning my room. Generally, I do it once a week, on Sunday. I can’t say that I’m a messy person, but as I am very busy during the week at school and doing my homework in the afternoons, I hardly clean my room at all on weekdays and that’s why by the end of the week it looks like a storehouse with piles of books, cassettes, discs and my clothes on every chair. As a matter of fact I usually like to have all my things at hand and I don’t want to put them in their right places each time I have used them. Another thing which I have to do daily is washing up. It has been my duty for years.
