If you were asked to summarise your "homestyling" skills what would you say?

for example:-
efficient in time management (im not I waste time)
budgetting skills
household management

etc

ooooh I like! bounce

Erm, 'tis difficult :scratch:

being honest I think I am a skilled procrastinator Embarassed

I really don't think I am skilled at anything. I tend to bumble my way through different tasks just trying to get them finished and only do them when they absolutely need doing. Embarassed

Shanky's Donkey lol.
I read somewhere once, that a lady went to a really posh dinner do held by her husbands work. She was dreading it, because she was always looked down on by the wives, because she was a 'homemaker' so this time, when the enevitable question came, from the inevitable high flying career woman, she listed off a load of 'qualifications' it went something like this..."I'm a nurse, sometimes a doctor. I'm a chef, cook and housekeeper. I'm a teacher, carer, gardener, needlewoman, dressmaker. I run a taxi and work nights"..... etc etc. She reeled off all the tasks a SAHM does. lol. Don't know what the reaction was, but I thought that was great :-) Appealed to my weird sense of humour lol.

I always put stiltwalker on my CV! I used to do it professionally in my late teens and it does make me memorable!

I'm thinking of adding superwoman too as the amount of stuff I get done with 2 such littlies I think I probably qualify! Laughing

A domestic engineer, your abilities mean that your household continues to run like a well oiled machine.
You canm multi task, have the ability to work alone & as part of a team, you can run the diaries of several very busy, important people to ensure that everyone is in the right place at the right time, with the correct equipment needed for them to complete their tasks.
You are an accountant, nurse, painter & decorater, seamstress, chef, buyer, cleaner, someone who can be relied on at all times. Friend, lover, etc etc.
You could probably fill a few sides of A4 on everything that you are able to do.
I wonder if many people do actually put in all the strengths they have & learnt through being a home styler.

I'm a stilt walker would make you very memorable. Is it like riding a bike & something that you don't forget how to do?

I would describe myself as 'Jack of all trades, Master of none'
I can turn my hand to most things or will at least have a go, just don't expect perfection on anything, all I ask for is good enough.
