Today’s challenge is to choose /imagine a tool from Doraemon’s magic pocket.. I found it difficult to participate in this challenge as I only watched several episodes of Doraemon back in Jakarta, in 1988. Manga and anime became quite well-known in Indonesia at that time. However I wasn’t attracted to it, and am still not now by the way.
Back to the challenge; I wish I had a housekeeping tool which could do all the household chores for me and my family. I don’t even know whether there is such a tool available in Doraemon’s magic pocket. According to the challenge it is allowed to choose an imaginary one. Therefore this is my choice.
Unlike in Indonesia where labor is cheap and it is common to hire a housekeeper, here in The Netherlands I need to do the household by myself. Correction, my family (husband, daughter and I) does all the household chores. My husband and I work full time. Beside our job we have our hobbies. This means we don’t have much time to do household chores. So I dream of having a magic tool which keeps my house tidy all the time.
Here are the chores the tool has to do:
sweeping, vacuuming, putting in and taking out the dishes from the dishwasher, doing laundry, ironing, cleaning bathrooms, cleaning the kitchen, cleaning the refrigerator and freezer, washing bedding, taking off washing and set back the curtains, mopping floors, watering plants, mowing the lawn, weeding the garden, taking out the trash, keeping the garden, washing windows etc.
I would be very thankful if there was such a tool which could handle all the chores above so my family and I would have a sea of spare time. Two chores I do gladly are cooking and doing grocery. I leave the rest to the tool.
