Forget the washing up, let me tell you about my marriage.

Byline: Denis Kilcommons Looking at life with our ever-popular columnist denis.kilcommons@yahoo.co.uk

A BBC documentary revealed that six million Brits employ a cleaner.

The population of the UK is 64 million of which 43.5 million are adults. This means that almost 18% of the adult population have a cleaner. Who are they? How many ordinary people employ someone to tidy up, do the washing, vac the carpets and clean away the breakfast dishes and the plates still encrusted with last night's curry? Is this a modern trend which couples, who both work, see as a necessary expense so they have free time together without the hassle of heavy duty housework? Apparently some employers share secrets with their cleaners.

One commented: "I'm not a psychotherapist, I'm a cleaner."

Perhaps if cleaners combined their duties with a second profession they would be even more popular and command better rates of pay: cleaner/driver, cleaner/dental assistant, cleaner/aerobic teacher, cleaner/psychotherapist.

Some ladies may even prefer cleaner/winedrinker, so they can share a bottle or two of Prosecco, after which everyone is a psychotherapist.
