Margaret Thatcher loved doing housework. I totally get it. Very cerebral people love housework. I once had it explained to me by a psychologist. It helps bring different parts of the brain into balance, producing a sense of great emotional well-being.
I spent the whole day yesterday alternating between working on my book, doing laundry, folding, and cleaning up. There was an ongoing playdate in the house while I was doing it, so I never ran out of stuff to pick up. My brain felt really well as a result.
